Welcome to this week’s episode of Tales From the Pictures We Saved.
We’ve spent the past 26 years helping our customers preserve tens of millions of happy memories, milestones, achievements and events—all of which have incredible stories behind each and every photo.
And now we’re eager to share these stories with you.

We’ve see it happen dozens of times and have helped customers restore their badly damaged photos. However, this entire scenario can easily be prevented with a little foresight.
So, before you start that big framing project consider a few of our tips to help you keep photos from sticking to glass:
