Heritage Makers Celebrates National Digital Scrapbooking Day

While we began our company by pioneering the concept of “storybooking,” we realize that because our Studio is online and our products are digitally designed, we are also part of the growing “digital scrapbooking” movement.
As more people move away from the traditional “scissors and stickers” scrapbook albums, the digital side is enjoying significant growth. And it makes good sense.
First of all, the photos we take today are already digital. No need to pay a developer to print out a pile of pictures anymore. Secondly, almost everyone has access to a computer that can get on the internet for instant availability to digital artwork and design inspiration. Third, we live in an increasingly time-strapped society where the ability to get something finished faster is definitely a draw. Digital scrapbooking seems to offer a speed advantage over traditional.
Digital scrapbooking and storybooking with Heritage Makers offers those advantages — simplicity, speed, security, easy and economical. That’s why we want to honor National Digital Scrapbook Day on Saturday, November 5, 2011.
Whether you are already addicted to digital scrapbooking, considering the switch from traditional paper to digital or thinking of trying the easiest digital option on the market, your Heritage Makers Personal Publishing Consultant can help you decide if Studio is right for you.
We thought it might be helpful to compare Heritage Makers online Studio publishing system with traditional paper scrapbooking and with general digital scrapbooking. We hope you’ll discover the significant advantages of Studio and begin to preserve your memories with ease.

Traditional Scrapbooking vs Heritage Makers Studio
Must buy & store supplies
albums, page protectors, papers, stickers
tools, adhesives, pens, scissors, etc

Everything is built on the site & stored on our servers
Takes up a lot of space to keep/
organize supplies
All you need is a computer connected to the web
All artwork/tools are built into Studio
All artwork & templates are easy to find (searchable)
Requires a dedicated space or time
to set-up/take-down for a work session

Be designing in seconds online with a small laptop.
Walk away or get interrupted, your work is saved.
Making multiple copies of a special project
involves a major investment in supplies,
time & effort

Simply click to order multiple copies easily. Or
slightly customize each one without redoing the
whole project every time.
Working with anyone else on a layout
or album is difficult unless both live

Conveniently collaborate across the
miles with others to work on a project
in one account
Can’t be portable without lugging a lot
of supplies, photos, tools, etc. & then
you need a lot of table space to set up
& spread out for working.
Very portable! If you have a laptop, you can log in to Studio & work from anywhere, even without a table.
