Why You Should Consider Safety When Digitizing Memories
Many people are increasingly converting their old family photos, home movies, and other precious memorabilia into digital formats, making digitizing memories more popular. While this process can offer numerous benefits, such as facilitating memory preservation and sharing, it is crucial to consider safety.
Memories are priceless, and losing or damaging physical copies can be devastating. Digitizing memories can mitigate these risks, but it is critical to ensure that your original copies remain safe during the process. Some companies require you to box and ship your photographs and heirlooms. Shipping originals can pose several hazards, such as loss or damage, inaccurate handling, and delays. Older photos and memorabilia may be dry and brittle, and trying to pack them into a box may harm your originals. Packages travel through various locations and environments, and the box may become wet or crushed, jeopardizing your precious memories.
