I wish there was a name for that feeling that comes from looking at old family photo albums. Nostalgia-tastic? Or a word for the emotions that arise when you’re digging through those shoe boxes filled with images of memories past. Sentimentacular?
It doesn’t seem to matter how good or bad the photos are (let’s be honest, most of them are blurry or have a thumb over half the photo), every single image holds a heart’s worth of memories and a life’s worth of stories.
Technology is great. It’s amazing that we can store a billion photos in some magical cloud and scroll through our phones whenever we want, but there’s just something about holding memories in your hands (especially when they’re stunning photos!). When they’re solid and tangible, it's just so much more meaningful. What’s the word for that? Emotion-evoking-extravaganza?
You know it when you see it and feel it. There are no words…
Sentimentacular and other words that don’t exist … yet
custom photo albums
"The photos came out exactly how we envisioned it and we couldn’t be happier."
See your memories come to life with photos that look and feel as close to being there as you can get? Or…
Take the gamble that your pictures may or may not turn out with the right coloring, resolution, saturation (i.e. looking at the pictures like: I look more orange than I remember, or is that my mom or a pineapple?)?
There’s a reason you go with a high quality, handmade, custom crafted heirloom album over a generic product. I won’t bore you with the technical specs of printers, paper quality, and the lifelong craftsmanship involved, but… you get what you pay for is the moral of the story.
Okay, now I’ll bore you with the photo nerd deets… I use RedTree Albums because they’re the highest quality and just droolingly beautiful. They handcraft each album with archival materials, using museum quality paper, true matte finishes and gorgeous customization options. They’re called heirloom albums for a reason – these albums will last lifetimes!
