Why should you print your family heirlooms?

What are Family Heirlooms and Why should I print them?

Family heirlooms are typically items passed down from generation to generation. These items can be valuable monetarily or in sentiment. The value comes from what it means to the family. There are many different types of family heirlooms such as letters, diaries, scrapbooks, artwork, stories, jewelry, recipes, and more. While some heirlooms cannot be printed, many of them can and they can be salvaged and protected and passed down for even more generations.

What heirlooms can you print?

One example of a printable family heirloom is a letter or diary from a family member. The benefit to getting this printed is that you will have the letter or diary for years and years to come. This can be a special note from a loved one or a complete book or diary they have written. To have the thoughts of a loved one printed is such a special keepsake to have to pass down from generation to generation.

Another heirloom you could have printed is a special piece of artwork created by a loved one. Whether they are an artist or amateur it is nice to be able to pass down their special artwork for years to come. You have the option of printing one piece of art or to create a book of several pieces of art. The possibilities are endless.

Stories are a great family heirloom to have printed. Often, stories are passed through storytelling from generation to generation, however having them printed would ensure that the same correct story is told over and over and that no details are left out. Again, with this method, you could choose to print a single story or a bound book as a collection of stories.

Recipes are another family heirloom that could be printed. Whether you want them printed in the original author's handwriting or typed up in a new and neater font you have tons of options. You could also print a series of recipes in a cookbook to pass down from generation to generation. How special would it be to have a passed loved one's favorite recipe that you can cook at your home for your family?

Why should you print your family heirlooms?

We live in an everchanging world of technology, and you want to ensure you have the special heirlooms to pass down from generation to generation. They hold up better than the original paper they were created on. Bind them in a book to have all your memories in one safe place. Give them as a special gift to family members for holidays, birthdays, or just because.
