A starter archiving kit.
For the photo lover, family historian, legacy seeker and passionate human. Life is about what you gather from it.
The Gather Box makes archiving easy and it’s perfect for someone just starting off with an archiving project. Fill the box with prints to be scanned. It’s that simple. If you’re one of those people who just doesn’t know where to begin, The Gather Box makes it a little less overwhelming. Oh, and did we mention it makes a meaningful gift idea as well?
Don’t know where to begin?
Do you need a subtle (yet effective) way to get family members to participate in the archiving process? Our take-home, DIY archiving kit simplifies the sometimes daunting task of organizing personal effects and helps get your photo closets, drawers, garages, basements and attics in order!
STEP 1: GATHER
Purchase the box for yourself or a loved one. Inside, find instructions and tips to guide you through the sorting and gathering process.
STEP 2: FILL THE BOX
Fill it with memorabilia, photos, slides and home movies, then drop it off at our store. If you have things that won’t fit in the box, bring them along so we can address those items separately.
STEP 3: MAGIC!
Return to find that everything in your box has been magically transformed into digital format. Now you can relax in confidence knowing those precious relics from the past are now protected and easily accessible.
How can I get it?
Stop in and purchase The Gather Box (starting at $149) from our retail location at 1000 N. Butterfield Road, Suite #1025, Vernon Hills, Illinois 60061.
Will my treasured photos be safe?
Absolutely! Our team of professional photo archivists will care for your memories as if they were our own. We take memory preservation seriously and that’s why your print memorabilia will never be outsourced or sent off site. By keeping your memories local, you are avoiding potential risks like shipping or delivery damage, loss and theft.
What if I have memorabilia that won’t fit in the box?
Don’t worry, it’s very common for a first time archiver to have more memories than the box can hold. The Gather Box is simply a place to begin. Elements that don’t fit inside the box can be digitized with the same order, however additional fees will apply. We’re happy to work with any size custom archiving project, even if it doesn’t fit in the box! A cost estimate will be provided before the magic begins.
We never recommend shipping away family archives, treasured photos and irreplaceable home movies. It’s too risky. The Print Refinery – Vernon Hills has been professionally preserving memories for 10 years.
