About Having Your Photos & Documents Restored
When we frame valuable or sentimental documents and photos today, a good framer will use a variety of materials and techniques to help preserve items for future years.
While these materials have been around for over 40 years, they were not commonly used until the last 15 years or so. Our clients come in with older family pieces in various stages of disrepair. Some are faded to a point where the handwriting is nearly unreadable. Others are crumbling, missing pieces or stained with mold or waterstained.
Photo Restoration West St. Paul, MN
Today we can provide an excellent digital restoration of these damaged photos and documents. We do this work locally, using a very skilled craftsman who is truly an expert in this area. He is simply the best in the business, in our humble opinion. And his services are very reasonably priced. While many of the big chains do restoration work, your item will probably be simply scanned and usually sent to China or Thailand for editing….which can get kind of tricky if something isn’t quite right!
Our restorer is more than just a decent photoshop guy. He is a restoration expert who has studied photographic history extensively and even chosen his printing inks and papers to reflect history. We give you a no obligation quote upfront and a digital proof by email before printing. If you see something that isn’t quite right”perhaps a color isn’t the way you remember, you let us know and we send another proof. Only then we go to print.
