5 Ways to Ensure Your Items Last Throughout the Years

by | May 21, 2021 | How To, Uncategorised

Your best moments might fleet before your eyes but well-cared pictures of them can last many generations longer. The key is care. Getting your fun, magical and valuable moments captured on camera and printing them out to hold, display or go through the motions of flipping through pages upon pages is the best feeling we could ever have. But coming across visual time capsules that aren’t stored online can be a daunting task- especially in this digital era.

If you’re one of those who are looking for a smart hack to store your old prints or to preserve your best moments so they’ll last for generations to come, this blog is for you! Read on to bring your memories to life and cherish them for years to come.

Photo Books

Do you snap a  lot of photos? Looking for a  perfect way to collect your fondest memories into one beautifully bound tome that you could cherish for years to come? Why not turn your moments into a premium quality photo book that comes with a slipcase?

Whether you want to preserve and protect your family history- leaving a legacy for your children, wedding moments, or simply your everyday moments- you can never go wrong with a photo book.

As an alternative to a photo album that you make online to hold your favourite memories in the form of a book, photo books are something you can hold and flip through your memories in style. What’s better? Storing and keeping them safe to stand the test of time will be a breeze with a slipcase that comes with the photo book.

A photo book slipcase tailored to fit a photo book provides an extra layer of protection against dust, UV light, and the human factor that make a big difference in how well the book will age over time.

Wall Art

There’s an old saying that the doom of men is that they forget – that nothing truly lasts forever. But in actuality, we all remember, but we couldn’t relive the memories with the mementos that don’t last as long as our memories.

One of the best ways to treasure your moments from fading away with the ravages of time is with wall arts. (especially if you’re not a fan of photo books) By turning your moments into something you can display and show off in your personal space or your home, you’ll be able to bring your memories to life as they’ll be the center of the attraction no matter where you place them and remind you of those moments.

Plus, since wall arts such as metal prints, canvases, and framed prints are quite versatile-used as a gift, sprucing up a blank wall or empty spaces and act as a decorative element, keeping your memories safe and sound without worrying about how to store them is a breeze.

Story Tag Cards

If you’re not a fan of a photo book or wall arts, but you would like to cherish your favourite moments in prints without worrying about ways to keep them safe and sound for years to come, why not try photo prints or Polaroid-style story tag cards?

Visually appealing and great to touch, photo prints or story tag cards are a classy or more traditional way to keep your moments alive. As they’re perfect in size, durable and versatile in nature, stretching your creative ability to use them as a gift, decorative items, or simply storing them in a box that comes with the prints and story makes treasuring your memories much easier.

Whether you want you to turn your moments in prints or story tag cards, you’ll be able to cherish them in style.

Photo Mugs

Who says that you can only cherish your memories by compiling them as a book, turning them into home decor, or box storable form of memories? If you want your special moment to be a part of your daily life, turning the highlights of your fav moments into functional, daily-used products that can be repurposed, then photo mugs are the best way to go.

Just like the story tag cards and prints, photo mugs are also quite versatile in nature and are great items to show off your creativity too. Though they’re generally, used to sip water or any beverages, they can actually be repurposed and used to plant succulents, as stationery holders, dessert holders, and more.

It all depends on your creativity. By putting highlights of your memories and special messages, they’ll not only be an everyday reminder of your favourite moments but also as a functional product that you could preserve all your heart.

Photo Keychain

Are you one of those who would love to show off the photo of your favourite person with something that you could bring it anywhere? Or someone who loves keychains?

Then creating personalised keychain is a great way to keep a photo that’ll remind you of something special or memories related to them. A keychain is a pretty functional item that you can put on the zip of your bag, keys, pencil box, or so on.

If you’re a 90’s kid and sentimental type like me, you must’ve known how precious are the passport photos of our loved ones that we keep in our purse or wallet, but keeping them safe inside our wallet for a very long time can be a daunting task. The photos can be damaged with smudges, bends, or holes that’ll upset us- making us remove them from our our purse or wallet.

With a personalised keychain, you’ll not only be able to bring the precious reminder of your favourite person wherever you go but will also be able to relive your best moments with your loved one.

And that concludes our list of 5 ways to ensure your items last throughout the years. So if you want to cherish your memories and keep them safe for years to come, feel free to visit Pixajoy website and grab your favourite photo goodies.
