Why Print Matters: Create Heirlooms for Future Generations
People are taking more photos now than in the history of mankind and our children are the most photographed generation ever. Yet most of these memories and special moments enjoy a brief share on social media and remain forgotten on a smart phone’s camera roll, a cloud account or a folder somewhere on your personal computer, never to be seen by you or your children ever again. The irony of the digital age is that even though we are sharing hundreds of photos of moments we are also forgetting them just as quickly. There is great value in being reminded of your life’s special moments, it gives you strength in tough times and reminds you that you are a family.
Digital photo storage is constantly changing and if you don’t keep up your photos might be lost or you might actually forget that you have them. Remember floppy disk ? What if your photos were still on one of those ? CD/DVD’s which were the gold standard of digital media are vanishing to be replaced by USB’s but what’s coming in the next 10, 20, 30 years ? How do we keep up ? Cloud solutions are great but there is always the risk of your account being hacked and your photos being used without your consent in some foreign country or even deleted. That’s why nothing beats print. Q-Photo’s photographs are printed with a silver-halide process we means that we create genuine photographic prints which if kept out of direct sunlight will last for over 150 years. By printing your photos you keep your best memories and your life’s special moments safe and you get to relive them every day.
The joy of print is in the sharing, the creation of a keepsake for future generations that you can enjoy every day.
