How to make your next holiday party a hit!

At, we often hear how customers around the globe enjoy the pictures we scanned for them. One popular and always trending reason is as an icebreaker at holiday parties and family reunions.  Are you planning on hosting an upcoming holiday party, or family reunion?  Well, we have a fun idea that will get all your guests mixing, mingling, and having a grand old time.


Set up a scrolling slideshow featuring decades-past photos of the guests who plan to attend. Ask each guest to submit scanned photo memories from their decades-past childhood and special pictures that share a story.  Great icebreaker tip.
