Preserving Newspaper Cutting

You know right that I’m fehmes? *cue to massively vomit blood now* :P

We appeared in the newspaper several times before and I treasure them like those are the most valuable thing in the world to me. *jakun* I framed them up and hung it where people can see it. Unfortunately I noticed that after some time, those newspaper cuttings tend to turn yellow.

The other day, while printing some worksheets for Ethan, I thought of something. It came to my mind of duplicating those newspaper cuttings before they turn any yellow-er!

I told Ethan my idea and immediately that boy took the newspaper cutting.

Placed it on the scanner

Pressed just ONE button

And it’s done! All this without even needing to switch on the computer!

Just watch this video to see how simple it is to duplicate a document using our printer :D

Now I have more than ONE copy to show off ^_^ I can hang it in the classroom in my house as well as in the Studio :D

You can’t even tell the difference! People don’t even realise that it is actually a duplicate that I framed while the original cut out I filed nicely and keep it in a safe! :P Best of all, this copy WON’T turn YELLOW! :D
