Online PR News – 30-October-2012 – Sacramento, CA – In a newly released blog article, Sacramento Movers discussed guidelines on how to store print snap shots. Photos help link to some of the best memories and are invaluable reminders of accomplishments, key events, and life transitions. In recent years it’s become common for personal photos to be stored digitally on a hard drive or on CDs. Even so a lot of folks still have a shoebox or two full of print photographs from the good old days.

Probably there is a dusty photo album hidden away in some nook of the bookcase that sits neglected for most of the year. These paper and ink relics will not preserve forever-colors fade or copies could become exposed to water damage. If there is a scanner available at home, take time to scan all these into the home computer to share and save digitally. If scanning is not an option, take the following steps to maintain these valuable links to the past.

First, gather and prepare all print pictures that need to be stored. Dust off the picture book and delicately remove pictures from the pages. The glue, plastic and paper that compose photo albums often contain acidic qualities that can eventually deteriorate the quality of the photos. If needed, dust each and every photograph using a soft, dry towel and remove any sticky substance from the picture such as tape or craft cement. Use a soft tipped pen to tag the back of each picture with names and dates.

For storage of framed photos, be sure to use an acid-free mat to separate the photo from the glass. The rear mount should also be acid free. These materials may not only hold off but actually eliminate deterioration of the photo. Use a smooth quilt or bubble wrap to cover the framed picture and add cushioning. Keep this in a photograph box available from moving box sellers. Be sure to put additional cushioning in the corners of the container.
