Preserving Handwriting of the People You Love

A person’s handwriting is deeply personal and can encapsulate a part of them that we can hold onto even once they are gone. Handwriting can bring back fond memories of personal notes, business deals, to-do lists, and recipes. When the people we love are no longer with us, pieces of their handwriting can bring us comfort as we remember who they were. Picture This Organized is committed to preserving and sharing stories, and handwriting plays an important role in the stories our clients want to remember and share.
