Basic Restoration
Note:  All pictures on this page were saved in small files
to expedite loading speed and are not representative of final clarity and quality.

Unfortunately, many old photos, documents and other items "show their age" and are in poor condition. Many a photograph contains scratches, creases or other blemishes that can be removed. Much of today's restoration can be done without altering the historical significance of the photo or item. Good quality photographic representations enhance any project and elevate interest while poor quality can actually be a distraction.

While scrapbooking is enjoying a new high in popularity, many are finding photographs and other memorabilia that, because they were "saved" in a scrapbook, need attention. Sometimes a fresh copy is all it will take to have a quality item for the family archives. However, many times, removing it from the scrapbook causes irreparable damage to the original. Let our restorer make a high quality copy for you while repairing any injury.

Basic restoration work, such as removing some dust or a crack from the background, is available at very reasonable prices. The base fee for restoration, be it photograph or other items starts at $25.00. More specific work, such as the mending of a hole, can usually be accomplished for additional charges - please inquire if interested. Restoration work is always quoted on an individual basis.

Here, we've cleaned up the picture, inserted two cameos, and identified everyone.

Restoration: We can repair or remove most holes (within reason), spots, rips, wrinkles, etc.
Custom Work: We can adjust the tone, if your original is too light or dark.
We can also "airbrush" away those scars or blemishes, and tone down or remove glare.

Pricing will vary according to amount of work needed.  An average is about $25.
If we don't feel we can make much improvement, there is no charge. (free appraisals)

We prefer to work from originals, but can work from pre-scanned photos,
provided they are scanned at least 400 dpi, and saved on a CD, DVD, 3 1/2 floppy or memory stick/card.
We will not accept e-mailed pictures, at this time.

We can print out the results, provide you with the file saved on a CD, DVD, or both.

Restoration services are offered to anyone interested and is not exclusive to our publishing packages. However, authors who wish restoration work may get their work done for little or no extra expense above basic photo services.
