Recently, I had the opportunity to do an extra special scanning project for a colleague of mine. His 10 year anniversary was approaching, and he wanted to do something really memorable for his beautiful bride. I have always tried to market our services as a unique, and thoughtful gift suitable for any occasion, and I was excited to help him with this project.
I consider every project we work on to be a privilege. Our customers are entrusting us with the care and preservation of their most precious, often irreplaceable photos. In this case, the photos to be scanned were from his wedding. After they were scanned and retouched, he was able to create a video for his wife, celebrating the day they were united forever.
A few days later, when I asked how it went, he said with a smile, “She loved it. It was off the charts!”
Over the years, I can honestly say I’ve never given my wife as thoughtful a gift as that. Material things wear out and break, but memories are cherished forever. I am personally taking a lesson from his example, and I think guys everywhere would earn a few points if they did too!
