Are Your Family Photos Prepared For Any Disaster?

Are Your Family Photos Prepared For Any Disaster?

Are Your Family Photos Prepared For Any Disaster?

If your house caught fire tomorrow, what’s the one thing you would save? Before you decide on that difficult answer, you should know that by participating in National Preparedness Month this September, you might be able to save a lot more than just one thing.

 

Sponsored by FEMA, National Preparedness Month was created to encourage everyone in our nation to prepare for emergencies—whether it’s a terrorist attack, fire, earthquake or flood. Our intrepid CEO, Mitch Goldstone, is a big believer in being prepared, and it is something he has ingrained in all of us here at ScanMyPhotos. To make sure you are fully prepared, head over to Ready.gov, where you will find plenty of resources.

 

In addition to survival preparation, let’s take a step back to that fire question—are all of the irreplaceable items in your home safe? Most material items can be replaced, but any item with an emotional attachment could be lost forever if a disaster occurs. These items often include those old boxes and albums of family photos—it’s impossible to replace those moments in time once they’re lost.

In the end, I bought “The Works,” and I’m really glad I did. The Photo Soap and book of thumbnails make the whole effort so much more useful.

Customer Reviews

so far, so good. I sent my photos last Thursday, they arrived Friday and SCANMYPHOTOS sent me an email that they were received with an approximate time frame of delivery. The following Thursday I received an email that they were working on them and would send me an email when shipped. The communication is great. Waiting on scans now but I am very confident that they will be great.

 

There customer service was very helpful.

 

We were very pleased with the pictures on the DVD when we received them. They did a beautiful job and our photos were returned in perfect condition. Very happy with ScanMyPhotos.

4 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Grandparents Day

Grandparents with their grandchildrenGrandparents Day is just around the corner, falling on Sunday, September 7 this year. To celebrate we pulled together some fun facts that you might not know about the holiday. We’re also topping them all off with one general fact about grandparents that may help you give them the best gift ever.

 

When it comes to Grandparents Day, did you know…

 

  1. There’s an official song. The U.S. has an official Grandparents Day song called A Song for Grandma and Grandpa, by Johnny Prill. We wouldn’t expect anything less for the two people who always make sure the grandkids have plenty of hugs, candy, and fun.
  2. There’s also an official flower. Forget-Me-Nots are the officially recognized flower for Grandparents Day. While the flowers’ namesake is a nice sentiment, there’s one small issue—Forget-Me-Nots typically bloom in the spring, but the holiday happens in the fall. Not to worry though, Grams and Gramps will be more than happy to receive any type of flower that’s in season. It is, after all, the thought that counts.
  3. This U.S. holiday is almost 40 years old. President Carter designated the first Grandparents Day on September 10, 1978. His goal was to encourage all citizens to plan activities that will recognize the many contributions grandparents have made to our lives. Pretty sweet, huh?
  4. The holiday always lands on the Sunday after Labor Day. This nifty little fact makes the holiday a bit easier to remember. Combine this factoid with the official flower, and it should now be a breeze to remember when Grandparents Day happens each year.

NYT Travel Article in Review: What’s Your Photo Storage Personality?

Photos on a clothesline

While we don’t recommend storing your photos this way, it is pretty to look at!

Ever wonder which photo storage sites would best suit your needs? In a recent article, Photo Storage by Personality, New York Times (NYT) Travel columnist Stephanie Rosenbloom recommends photo storage services based on key personality traits.

 

While this article offers great recommendations for storing digital travel photos, we started to wonder—when it comes to storing printed photos, which personality type would ScanMyPhoto users fall under?

 

  1. The Social Butterfly: Do you find yourself wanting to upload old road-trip pics so you can easily share them on Facebook or Twitter for a #tbt or #fbf post? If so, Rosenbloom suggests checking out Photobucket for an online service that makes it easy to share your photos to the social media platform of your choice.
  2. The Perfectionist: If your life motto is “there’s a place for everything and everything in its place,” then Flickr may be the photo storage service for you. For personalities who enjoy uploading prints to a virtual online library where they can organize, edit, and access photos, Flickr is a free service any Perfectionist should sign up for.
  3. The Essentialist: I think we can agree that most of us here at ScanMyPhoto are Essentialists who are simply looking for a secure online place to store our vintage vacay shots. We passed along a few suggestions on general cloud storage options a few months ago, but Rosenbloom offers a few more suggestions—like Box or Picturelife—for Essentialists to take advantage of.
