DocuMentor Collector's Record Track Your Treasures! Newly revised DOCUMENTOR COLLECTORS RECORD is available for Collectors of Antiques, Art, and Collectibles to organize information about and to catalog & document their objects.
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - The DocuMentor Collector's Record is a unique system, now greatly enhanced, for collectors to use in cataloging and documenting antiques, art, collectibles and other valuables. Many people sense the need to organize information about and "track" their valuables, but do not know how to go about it. There are six important reasons to do this documenting:
--Establish a record for insurance purposes to assure adequate compensation after a loss.
--Transmit your family heritage by capturing family history and provenance of objects.
--Prepare for a professional appraisal, saving appraiser's time and saving your money.
--Estate Planning, helping you make decisions about leaving objects to others.
--Tax benefits, in some instances, if you gift an object to an institution.
--Caring for your collection - - an aspect of connoisseurship.
The Documentor system provides the means to do such tracking in an easy, fun, and guided way. It is for collectors young or "seasoned" and is an ideal gift for many occasions.
Based upon accepted museum practices, the DocuMentor was developed for the individual or household- -or for collections in small museums, historical societies, or corporations. The DocuMentor is presented as a functional and flexible product, complete with:
--a handsome, custom-designed looseleaf binder,
--an enhanced Manual of Instructions,
--30 acid-free, standardized worksheets for cataloging objects,
--10 acid-free index sheets for cross-referencing one's objects,
--a compact disc(CD) for those who wish to catalog their objects by computer, or for printing unlimited worksheet and index forms for cataloging by hand,
--30 archival-quality, top-loading document protectors for assembling documents and photographs about one's objects, and
--10 tabbed index dividers.
The basic documenting procedure remains the same as in the first DocuMentor issued in 1991 in Alexandria, Virginia. The redesigned and expanded Manual of Instructions provides more information on appraisal, conservation, and use of the CD, which is brand new to the DocuMentor.
A professional instrument for any owners of valuable articles, the DocuMentor is designed for collections large or small, and for objects of diverse types and values. It provides the means for owners to easily organize and assemble comprehensive, detailed information about their objects. Perhaps the best part is that documenting is fun to do!
