About

In 1980 I shot 1000 images in one year with my Kodak Ecktachrome camera!

Most 16 year olds have more than 3000 on their phones. BUT they don't print many...

So what scares me is where is the future?  My Grandma's were born in 1906. I have a photo that is 100 years old of her.... how many 3 year olds are going to have their baby pictures in 2116?  Who knows the integrity of digital files thru time? Do you trust digital devices for longevity? How about the cloud? Do you know how dependent we are on all our records being stored digitally?  Too dependent! Our grandparents seen a future for us of expanding horizons and open vistas unlimited possibilities and they built a world for us. How are we honoring their legacy?

 I want to encourage people to print process their memories and images on paper. I have a Fugi photo processor that is a workhorse and like a classic car it likes to work. I don't have enough for it to do so I am offering to use this classic process to process light sensitive paper with the silver halide print process of exposing the paper and developing and fixing the images for archival purposes. I am offering this for a limited time as this machine will have a lifespan. If this project gets sufficient support we will process until our machine expires. No use a good machine sitting here listening to the clock tick. 

Additional awards available in coming days as support grows we can offer some interesting items. 

Let's get your special moments, for future generations have a legacy to hold in their hands,  from your heart to loving hands.

 Don't let this be our lost legacy! 

Real pictures.....from loving hearts...held in loving hands...embraced by loving spirits... Let's Smile and Pass It On!

Risks and challenges

I would like to get some work for a special machine I have been using. We have incredible investment in it and I want to see it used to its potential. I may have to refresh consumables which is quick and easy. We can start sending digital files immediately. Physical prints and gifts items as per rewards will be sent starting Sept 1 or when project closes. We will finish our shipping research to see logistics to send internationally. I see this as a great bit of fun for Christmas! Let's print some pictures to pass along. Our product is in no way the same as any other location as you may see as cheaper.. there are only a handful of these machines in use and they work hard. Supplies and parts are readily available. We just want to get people to enjoy their prints and have something long lasting for their future generations.
