From photos of you as a child to your grandparent's wedding photo taking up dust in your family's garage, here are some ways you can preserve your old photos!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Choosing the right location to display your photos is important for preserving their historical and emotional value. The best way to do this is to keep your photos in family albums.
If your photos are on display, it’s important that they aren’t exposed to direct sunlight, fluorescent light, or UV light. A dark corner or hallway is a perfect spot! Also, try and avoid displaying your photos in areas that are too hot, cold, or humid, as extreme temperatures can damage or deteriorate photos, especially older ones.
Custom framing photos can not only enhance your memory frozen in time, but it will also provide guaranteed protection.
