How’s your holiday shopping going? Are you cruising through your list or are you stumped with what to buy that special someone in your life? Or maybe you’re having trouble coming up with the perfect gift for that person who has everything? Well, let me introduce you to Legacybox. You might just finish your holiday shopping today!
Legacybox is a service that helps you digitally preserve any format of outdated memories– from VHS tapes to Super 8 film and everything in between– so you can relive them, again and again. And it’s so easy to do. (I promise, it won’t take all day!) Legacybox sends you a kit that you fill with any and all formats in your collection.
For me, it was a zillion random photos that never made it into photo albums (just shoe boxes that moved from house to house) and negatives that I’ve hung onto for years (I’m talking 15-20 years) for fear of throwing away memories, but, deep down, I knew I’d never get around to developing them. I just couldn’t toss them into the trash, ya know?
But, this is why Legacybox is so great. All of those wonderful memories can now be digitally preserved and organized.
The Legacybox kit includes a guide, round-trip (pre-paid) shipping, crush-proof box, and personal concierge, so you can talk to an expert any time if you have questions or concerns.
Legacybox uses unique bar codes to track and ensure that your memories stay safe throughout the entire process, so you don’t have to worry about anything getting lost.
You just place the bar code stickers on your items before you pack them away in your Legacybox kit.
And just to make sure you haven’t missed any steps, Legacybox includes a handy check list, so you know everything is done correctly and your memories are safe and sound before they are digitally preserved.
A few weeks later, I received my original photos and negatives along with a Legacybox DVD and USB drive with all of my digital files, ready to share and enjoy.
The whole process was incredibly simple and stress-free, and now my random boxes of photos and negatives are organized and preserved. Hey, it only took me a couple of decades to do it!
