Why You Should Consider Safety When Digitizing Memories
Digitizing memories have become increasingly popular, with many converting old family photos, home movies, and other precious memorabilia into digital formats. While this process can provide several benefits, such as making it easier to preserve and share memories, it is important to consider safety when digitizing memories.
Memories are precious, and the loss or damage of physical copies can be devastating. Digitizing memories can help protect against these risks, but it is important to ensure that your originals are kept safe during the process. Some companies will have you box up and ship out your photographs and heirlooms. Shipping originals can carry several risks, including; loss or damage, inaccurate handling, and delays. Older photos and memorabilia can be dry and brittle. Attempting to pack these into a box can cause damage to your originals. Packages travel through many locations and environments. The box can get wet or crushed, risking damage or loss of your precious memories.
