Family Instagram Coasters

It’s Thursday, so I thought I’d share a throwback family set I made a little while ago.

Back in April, my mom and I decided it’d be a good idea to get all of the family photos scanned. My parents live in Hawaii, and the humidity can do a number on old photos. So, we packaged everything up and sent our 2000 odd family photo archive to ScanCafe.

ScanCafe scanned, cropped, and touched up all of our images, which was pretty cool. They post everything online so you can pick the images you want to keep before they put everything on DVDs and send them back. The whole process took 4 weeks or so and cost $800.

The time and cost were totally worth it - I have 3 sisters, and we’re scattered across the globe. Now that our family photos are digitized and hosted on PictureLife, where we can all see and share them whenever we want.

And, I can make coasters out of them! For this set, picked 2 paired sister photos (back when we were small and cute), 1 full family photo, as well as 1 of the 4 of us girls.


Got a pile of old photos hiding in a box? Get them out and make them useful :).
