OK’s Trusted Funeral Home Provides 3 Tips for Preserving Family Photos

Start Small

Funeral HomeIt’s quite common to find a shoe box filled with family photos and portraits. Sifting the collection can be intimidating. To manage the job, start small. Devote a few hours a day to cataloging pictures based on era and individual. Make sure you have a few file folders, storage boxes, and albums to help straighten things. 

Prioritize Protection

Printed pictures can start to wear when exposed to dust, humidity, and the elements. To properly maintain photos during a memorial service and afterward, make sure you have photo albums with acid-free plastic sleeves. This way the edges won’t get torn, and they’ll maintain their color. While you organize, feel free to choose a few stand-out photos for professional framing behind glass as well. Avoid storing photos in attics or basements where it’s difficult to control temperatures. 

Back Up Digitally

During the process of organizing photos and choosing which prints to take with you to the funeral home for display, invest in a scanner so you can have digital backups of each photo. Having a digital copy stored on a hard drive or computer will guarantee you always have access to these family heirlooms.
