Because proper restoration requires a high resolution professional scan in order to maintain the highest level of quality, we prefer to scan your original photo ourselves. We will analyze and give you an immediate estimate of cost and time. Generally we ask for two weeks, but do ask if you need it sooner. Please give us a call or e-mail for an appointment locally.
• Any scan requires minor restoration, therefore, the minimum restoration fee applies.
Extensive Restoration: Torn areas and creases, large areas of water or mold damage, reconstruction of parts of facial features, and small missing parts of photos.
Moderate Restoration: Significant fading and damage to areas of the background that require re-creation of parts. This includes minor damage on faces not including eyes, mouth, and nose.
Minor Restoration: Fading, small areas of discoloration, and minor damage to small background areas.
• Your restored files are supplied on a CD at no extra charge.
All printing is done on archival semi-gloss paper or 100% cotton textured fine art paper. Only archival pigment based inks are used.
• There are photographs that are damaged beyond the extensive category, particularly images that have parts of people missing, or that require re-construction of complex backgrounds. These will be priced upon examination. Some photographs are damaged beyond reasonable repair.
