QUICK REASONS TO DIGITIZE YOUR MEMORIES:
“WHILE SOME INSURANCE POLICIES MIGHT COVER EMOTIONAL ITEMS TO A POINT, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN TAKE THE PLACE OF THE LOSS OF YOUR FAMILY COLLECTION.”
Standard Insurance: Most of the people have insurance in one form or another, whether it’s for your car, health, rental, home, property, life, or anything else. Insurance serves to protect us in case something goes wrong while providing us complete peace of mind. Having homeowner’s insurance makes sure that in case there is ever a flood, fire, or another natural disaster, you will be compensated to make up for the loss or damages to your possessions. However, what would happen if you lost your most valuable memories?
We all have special personal items that we consider to be invaluable in terms of monetary value. For a lot of us, these unique keepsakes are in the form of captured memoirs and family history – the home videos of your children growing up, your grandparents wedding album, your 35mm slide collection from the 80s or the 16mm film reels you inherited from your parents that you have never even seen but know it contains an integral part of your family’s history.
These slides, photographs, VHS tapes, films, and audio cassettes are worth incalculable amounts more to you as compared to the money your insurance company will value the physical materials at. While some of the insurance policies might cover sentimental items, no amount of money can take the placeof the loss of your family memories.
“HARD COPY ORIGINALS NATURALLY DISAPPEAR AND DECAY WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME BECAUSE OF THEIR CHEMICAL MAKEUP”
Memories Fade: The quality of your negatives, photographs, video/audio tapes, slides, and film have been degrading since they were first captured and continue to deteriorate as you read this blog post! Hard copy originals naturally disappear and decay with the passage of time because of their chemical makeup. Degradation is similarly exacerbated because of the environment in which these items are usually stored. Factors such as humidity, temperature, dust, light, rodents, and insects can all lead to the loss of your captured memories. It’s just a matter of time before these keepsakes aren’t able to be enjoyed or even recalled across generations.
Digital Memory Protection: The only possible way to protect your valuable memories from the damaging effects of time and mother nature is negative scanning in Jackson, Mississippi. Once scanned and digitized, those negatives, slides, photos, and home movies will never have to be scanned and digitized again. You can make use of the local photo scanning service of www.scansouth.net. Consider it as your own personal memory insurance policy with terms that lasts longer!
Only in the past few years have we had the ability to photo scan in Jackson,Mississippi, and we are so lucky to have this amazing technology. However, what about all those photos we had developed into prints and camcorder videos we capture before the digital camera? Or before that – the negatives, slides, reel-to-reel audio or 16mm/8mm films? Perhaps some were passed on to us from our parents or grandparents.
