Sometimes a story lives in your head. Either you personally experienced the event, or you've heard about it so often that you feel like you were there.

Sometimes a story lives in a cobwebby diary, a dusty old photo album, or a book whose pages crumble at the slightest touch. You want to preserve these artifacts, but you don't know how.

Jess shares an artifact at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

Jess Hagemann trained in artifact conservation at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, Illinois. You can trust her to rehouse your most valuable documents and most precious memories in archival polyethylene sleeves, unbuffered tissue paper, and acid-free Gaylord boxes. Gaylord is the gold standard in museum collections management.

Before permanently rehoming your artifacts, Jess can also digitize everything, so that the next time you want to show the grandkids those photos, they can see them online or in your very own newly published book instead of continuing to handle fragile papers and cellophane that may literally be older than dirt.
