4 Ways Under $100 to Display & Preserve Wedding Prints
One of the most beautiful and rewarding aspects of our job is delivering prints to our clients. Printed photos that they can touch and hold and put in frames in their homes and on their desks at work.
Do your parents or grandparents have that one cherished photo of your great grandparents in a silver frame sitting on their bedside table or on the mantle? That one black and white photo that may be ruffled or torn around the edges, or crinkled from years of sitting in a shoe box, or perhaps yellowish around the edges from being pressed in between the pages of an old book.
We’re sure you want to care and preserve your printed wedding photos for years and years to come. So maybe, one day, when your great grandchildren look up on the mantle, they’ll see that photo of you and your husband that was taken on your wedding day. The day you began life together, and started creating YOUR family’s legacy.
So, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with some of our favorite ways to display these valued moments in your home! We own one or more of each of these listed below, and we proudly display them in our home. Here are four lovely and functional ways we love to display and preserve prints.
