Before we begin the work we'll give you a fair and accurate price quote...no hidden charges. Quote is based on the estimated time to complete a project. You are only charged for the time spent. If it goes quicker than expected, you will be charged less. We never charge more than what was quoted.
Let us know if you'd like to alter the image in anyway from what it was originally. You might want someone cropped out to restore, have the hair color changed or add some freckles...whatever your request, It's our pleasure to retouch your pictures.
Photographs are precious because they capture our memories of loved ones, friends and special moments. Sometimes it is our art and how we express our lives and communicate to future generations who we are and what we have done.
Pictured is myself on the right and my customer, Mr Miller. He brought in a two inch high tintype to be restored of a relative that served in the Civil War. He liked it so much, we enlarged it and printed it on canvas to go on his wall of fame at home.
We print your images to fit your need. Printed up to 44"x109" in any proportion. Images do not have to be cropped like big box stores do.
We are happy to scan your pictures or see DIY tips on how to get the best scan on your own. With high resolution scans we have restored, enlarged and printed postcards 5'X3' and pictures small enough to fit into a locket. Pictured here was a scan of a district attorney from a newspaper, restored, enhanced and enlarged to 8"x10."
Extra light photo restorations can include but not limited to the repair of minor damage from discoloration, fading and photo papers darkening. Stains, scratches, tears and cracks that are not in important image areas like facial features and that are few in number, are removed.
Modest amount of damage as in Extra Light Photo Restore yet more difficult to recover as well as a greater amount of flaws - include but not limited to the repair of minor damage from fading, discoloration, stains, scratches, tears and cracks that are minimally in important image areas like facial features.
Medium photo restoration may have major areas of interest that are damaged along with more extensive scratches, tears etc., as compared to the lighter photo restorations. But the image is not missing any major parts in important areas of your picture. Color and contrast more difficult to recover but information is present.
Heavy photo restoration is when your picture is extremely soiled and/or missing parts with important features. Also when enlarging a print from it's original size, more details need to be cleaned up. At the original size there is stuff that can't be seen that looks bad when enlarged.
Extra heavy photo restorations require more creativity on the artist part and simply more time because of a multitude of pictorial issues. We know that rarely a piece needs to be totally detailed out but when it does, we'll do all we can for you.
We are actually altering forming elements of your picture in ways that were not present in the original capture. Enhancements Includes but not limited to, sharpness, noise reduction, clarity, contrast, color changes, value of shadow & highlights, remove distracting objects & people.
