How to Prevent Photos from Sticking to Glass

photos from sticking to glassIf you’ve ever put a photo in a frame, then you understand how that can leave you in a sticky situation. Over time, moisture from the air can creep in between the frame and the picture, fusing the chemicals and ink of the photo to the glass in the frame. This often results in ripped or damaged photos when the picture is attempted to be removed.

 

We’ve seen 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:

4 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day Scan My Photos Offer

Give Your Grandparents the Gift of Photo Scanning on Grandparents Day.

Grandparents Day is just around the corner, falling on Sunday, September 8th 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.
