One of the things that sets us apart form the crowd is that we offer unique products and services that you just simply can’t find other places. One of those is our Digital Restoration Services which allow us to restore photos, old documents etc. to their former glory. We have included some examples here to get you thinking about the possibilities. Of course the best thing to do is to bring your actual photos and documents in so we can make suggestions about what can be done and also provide pricing. Take a look at the sample below including the video at the bottom of the page.

We have seen a lot of old photos like the one below that is tattered and torn. It shows water marks and some of  the surface emulsion is missing and has taken some of the image with it.. In addition the background has faded and the photo is just not generally presentable.

The restored photo below looks a whole lot different than what we started with. The background has been fixed. The water marks and areas where there was no image has been repaired and you end up with a photo that can be framed and proudly displayed.

Folks are always concerned about their original which often has sentimental value and sometimes has monetary value as well.

Be assured that your original is NEVER altered in anyway. Since this is DIGITAL Restoration, your original is scanned and it is the scan that is restored and then printed, not the original.

We suggest from a conservation standpoint that the original be stored in archival material. As part of your restoration we supply you with a clear archival envelope in which to store your original.

Once your restoration is complete it is printed on paper of your choice and of course we can help you with custom framing so that it can be proudly and lovingly displayed .

Here’s a partial list of things that can be altered on your photo or document::
