We have been restoring old & damaged photos for 30 yrs.
We work with the general public as well as museums & historical societies.
We repair minor or severely damaged pictures, whether faded, stained, torn, missing pieces, bad color, water damaged. We can work on original photographs or digitally restore your images. We can even improve your photographs that are not damaged, but were never that good to begin with. Such as photos that are too dark, too light, far away, grainy or a little out of focus. Although we cannot make them perfect, we can usually double the current quality to make them look better. We can also just copy photographs that don’t need restoration. The new prints we make for you will be on archival quality papers guaranteed not to fade, discolor, or mold for 100yrs. We offer very reasonable prices and quick turnarounds.

We can send a Federal Express prepaid label to ship your photos to us. Call Mark for a free quote.
