ALBUMS + PRINTS
We cater to various requests when it comes to the memories captured on camera. Many loves to relive their moments while flipping through the pages of their customised photo books / albums and keep them in plain sight, on the coffee table or bookshelf. Some sort of fancy 'brag book' if you like; something they could also handover to their children + grandchildren as family heirlooms.
"the negative is the equivalent of the composer's score, and the print the performance." - ansel adams
Some simply prefer to decorate their homes and create their own 'Art Gallery' with high quality archival museum grade canvas. UV and water resistant coated, these matte prints also come with interlocking stretcher bars + tensioning wedges. Because gallery-wrapped wall canvas prints are lightweight, parents do not have to worry about the canvas falling off the wall and hurting their children. Most important of all, displaying photographs on the walls of living space helps to increase a child's self-esteem, as concluded by psychologists and experts in their research. It tells your children that they are loved and cared for each time they see their photographs displayed on the walls. Really!
Whatever it may be, the important thing is your cherished moments with your loved ones are captured and preserved one way or another! Digital files are great but they are transient and not really archival. Technology is advancing so quickly that old files will be inaccessible due to outdated operating system (remember floppy disk?). As of today, tech experts are still looking for a way to create digital formats which can still be accessed in thousand of years. Read more about this worrying issue here.
"if you leave your photos on a disk or your hard drive, your images will gradually fade into oblivion. the images are still there in that folder, but you never look at them. print your photos, my friends. put them on wall, on fridges or in books, but just print them, ok? every time you walk past that wall, you will remember that day and SMILE."
