|There is an on-line and an off-line process that is necessary to complete the ordering and personalization of your Gifts of the Past keepsakes.|
To initiate an order for a Gifts of the Past keepsake please send us an email telling us which gift/s you'd like and we'll send you the appropriate order form.
We are currently accepting checks, money orders, and PayPal. If you wish to use PayPal, you must have an account with them. If you do not already have a free PayPal account but would like to open one you can do so by going to PayPal.com. If you wish to pay using PayPal, after logging in please use the following address firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also hope to be adding telephone service soon.
There are two steps in the off-line process which is designed to help you personalize your keepsakes.
Step 1. Upon receiving your on-line order we will send to your home, via U.S. mail, your order form. This form is designed to guide you as you enjoy selecting your photographs, deciding on a title, and writing your dedication or captions.
Step 2. Return your completed order form along with your photographs--and your audio-tapes when appropriate--to Gifts of the Past in a protective bubble mailer or padded envelope. For added protection, place a piece of stiff cardboard inside the mailer and write "Photographs: Do not bend" on the outside of the package. If you are sending us an audiotape, it is best to place your photographs between two pieces of stiff cardboard.
If youd prefer to scan your own photographs and then email them to Gifts of the Past, please scan them in color mode at 300 dpi in a TIFF or JPG format. If a photograph is smaller than 4 X 6, please scan at 150%. Be sure to include your name and address in your email.
Note: For additional peace of mind, we highly recommend you duplicate
your oral history/family stories onto another audio-cassette. However,
please mail us the original so that our transfer onto CD is made from
the highest-quality recording possible. The audio quality on the CD will
be virtually the same as that on the audio-tape.
Within two weeks after receiving your completed order form, Gifts of the Past will return your photographs--and audio-tapes when appropriate--along with your new Gifts of the Past keepsakes!
