We’re probably all guilty of not printing enough photos in this day and age. But, what about all of those old family photos that actually are printed and are most likely stored away in boxes, sitting in unbeknownst corners of our attics? What a treasure they are–if we only take the time to go through them.
My grandmother passed away 16 years ago (which completely blows my mind) and only within the last couple of months have my dad and aunt gone through the stacks of her photos and family documents. That’s how fast time flies, isn’t it??
Sorting through family treasures and organizing them is one thing, but preserving–and being able to share them with family–is another. Whether you decide to digitize your own photos or buy a box as a gift for someone else, the KODAK Digitizing Box couldn’t be easier. You find and gather the photos (or videos or cassettes or slides, etc.) and they do the rest of the work.
What you get: KODAK sends you a big box, printed labels, detailed instructions and a shipping label.
What you do: My dad took the time to sort photos by each sibling’s family, but you don’t have to be quite so organized. . . Once you group your items, just label the items with the preprinted bar codes, put everything in the box and affix the included shipping label.
KODAK already has a great reputation for high quality that also spills over into the digitization of everything you want to preserve. I think my main concern, especially when it came to my grandparents’ original photos, was making sure that everything was returned and well taken care of during the process. I’m happy to report that KODAK kept me informed every step of the way, letting me know when they received the box and sending me email updates during the process. (All of your originals are returned!)
What you receive: All of our photos were delivered on a jump drive, CD and via a Google Drive link for easy sharing. Easy to wrap up and share with the whole family for Christmas. That’s a gift that’s hard to beat.
