Traditional scrapbook vs Modern scrapbooks

Typically seen as an old woman’s hobby, traditional scrapbooks are loosing its charm and sheen in the modern digital world. When everything can be done at a click of the mouse, who wants to spend days collecting and compiling a scrapbook.

We tell you here the basic difference between traditional scrapbooks and modern ones (not necessarily digital) and then leave it to the reader to decide which one they like better.

1. Traditionally, scrapbooks were all of the same kind, the book or album lot. Since there was no choice about making a digital scrapbook, so designs and variety were limited. They all looked the same, and decorating options were limited. That time could as well be called an era of “no-nonsense scrapbook”. But these days, even the book kind of scrapbook is available in so many themes and variety that a person is spoilt for choices.

2. Traditional scrapbooks had metal corners to keep photos in place. This is no longer in practice as modern scrapbooks require you to stick photos with a special adhesive. Digital scrapbooks let you “paste” pictures on to pages, not with adhesive or glue, but with the right click of mouse.

3. Making a scrapbook in olden days used to be a tedious process. It took people ages to collect the required material and embellishments. But in this age of lightening speed communication, modern scrapbooks can be prepared in as little time as a single day.

4. Photos used in a traditional scrapbook would always have to be duplicated to reuse it. That problem no longer exists because all prints come from digital photos, which can be easily stored in a computer or online.

5. The quality of traditional scrapbooks was not very great, since the paper or ink used in it was not of archival quality. So they tended to fade easily. But people today are more aware of the uses of archival quality supplies, like acid-free paper. So modern scrapbooks have a better lifespan.
