According to the emailed announcement, members will be compensated for their memberships in the shutdown:
…we will be offering a FULL REFUND for all yearly Club Members (no matter when you signed up) and for all monthly Club Members activated within the last 60 days. This refund will be issued automatically via PayPal. Your funds will be returned to the credit card you used when signing up.
To preserve the content that they’ve created on ScrapHD, members are being advised to take immediate advantage of the service’s “Print from Home” option:
The print from home feature will prompt the system to email you the high resolution .JPG version of your completed scrapbook. This file can then be saved to your computer and used however you would like. For instance, you can save the file to a USB device and use an outside printing source if you do not have a printer at home.
A video is available to teach members how to use the Print from Home feature if it is new to them.
ScrapHD was founded as a membership service in the summer of 2009 to provide a bridge between digital and paper scrapbooking industries by facilitating hybrid scrapbooking. Paper manufacturers offered some of their collections on the proprietary platform in digital form, in the hope that scrapbookers would then seek out their paper products to add to their layouts to create hybrid content. Manufacturers who initially signed on to the project included 7gypsies, American Crafts, Art Gone Wild!, Imaginisce, Jenni Bowlin Studio, Karen Foster Design, Mrs. Grossman’s, My Mind’s Eye, Piggy Tales, SEI, Teresa Collins Designs, and Three Bugs in a Rug.
