A precious photograph can be ruined by the elements—a fire will char it, a rainstorm will wilt it, and a breeze will blow it into a courtroom, where it will be counted as evidence. Best Mother Nature with this Groupon.
$39 for $100 Worth of Digitization Services for Photos and Film

For nearly a decade, the technicians at Fodeo have preserved grainy videos, film, slides, and photos from the effects of wear and age by transferring them onto more dependable and accessible digital formats. On a daily basis, celluloid formats spend their days aging inside drawers and on shelves, where they can fall victim to such hazards as water, dust, and snack time. Technicians work in-house to rescue captured images, ensuring treasured footage remains safe and in one place during its transformation.
In addition to preserving images, Fodeo has developed innovative methods for displaying them as well. Fraimz–durable adhesive photo frames that can stick on multiple suface types without causing damage to either the photo or surface–is the result of their nearly four years of research and development.
