“Another fall, another turned page.”
Memories Renewed plays a critical role in the changing of the seasons, not only digitizing memories of seasons gone but allowing customers the perfect holiday project for that one-of-a-kind gift idea!
While the trees begin to drop their leaves and the sun takes more time off, hunker in with your memories and make the holiday season extra special for your loved ones. Digitizing photos, negatives, slides, videos and film can quickly breathe new life into family time, as you reminisce about the good ol’ days.
Gather & Assess…
The first step in any digitization project is to gather the materials you plan to have digitized. Priceless family keepsakes can be squirreled away in unlikely places.
- Have you ever used a photograph as a bookmark?
- Are your home movies mixed in with the Disney VHS collection?
- Has your children’s artwork infiltrated every drawer in your home?
- Have you inherited a family member’s collection of film or slides?
Once you see how much you have accumulated; you can pause, take a deep breath, and move on to step two.
Sort & Label…
- Separate your materials into categories based upon format.
- Remove duplicates.
- Determine which materials you want to preserve.
There are as many ways to personally organize your materials as there are subjects: by person, decade, year, event, or family. Use subject groupings that are uncomplicated.
Contents can then be secured in separate envelopes or resealable plastic bags. Labeling subject groupings with sticky notes is recommended, and will allow final file folders to be named in a way that is meaningful to you.
