Bring the past to life by trawling through those old family photos. A treasure trove of gift ideas usually sit in biscuit tins or in old family albums in almost all homes. These photos very often are locked away “safely” never to be seen again, except on special occasions (so that they are kept safe and sound for future generations ).
However, with the latest photo technology, the Galway Fuji Centre are bringing these old photos back to life and right into the digital age. Over the last few months it has copied thousands of old photos and saved them onto CDs for customers. Very often the copies are for other family members – but a beautiful destination for the photos is frequently into a personalised photo book (to perhaps replace the wedding album that has been lost or damaged ).
This Christmas – dust off those photos and bring them into the Galway Fuji Centre so it can help you with your gift ideas. For every photo it copies, it restores faded images, freshens up colours and can easily enlarge the copies (while keeping your originals safe ). There is something special about seeing a wedding album from the 70s restored to the colour that was taken by the camera on the day.
It has taken photos that are over 100 years old – and restored them to the condition they were at the time. There is absolutely no danger to your original photo – it carries out all work on digital copies of your photo – onsite at its store on Shop Street. Your memories are safe with Galway Fuji Centre.
Among the fantastic gift ideas (once you have the restored photo ) includes putting it on canvas from just €32. Canvas Prints are a brilliant and timeless way to show off any photo – and it displays old black & white photos to their best. Added to this is the fact that there is no frame involved – hence it looks well on the wall of any house, forever.
The creation of a Photobook (where you receive a bound personalised book of all your photos ) is a very personal gift idea. Some of the best themes it has come across are “Baby’s First Year”, “This is your life” and simply “My Skiing Holidays”. These books are available from just €45 for up to 96 Bound Photos – and make a great gift any time of the year.
No Christmas and New Year Season is complete without a calendar for the coming year. Just call into Galway Fuji Centre and create the ultimate Gift (that lasts all year ). For just €20 – you can personalise a calendar with your photos – month by month. Never again will someone’s birthday be forgotten.
