We Help Improve Your Memories™

Received my beautiful order. They are in frames, hung on my dining room wall and the 5x7s are also framed and gift wrapped for my sisters.

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with them.

I’m wondering if you ever received my check as I don’t see that it has gone through my bank as yet. Please deposit it. You deserve every penny and then some.

I shall hold on to your business cards should any of my family or friends need your services.

We all have old photographs that we treasure, whether they are old family photographs passed on from previous generations, or historic photographs of the homes and towns we live in. But sometimes bad things happen to photos such as stains, rips and fading. Even properly stored photos can succumb to the ravages of time. We are experts at digitally restoring your most treasured photographs, leaving your originals untouched.

We understand that many old photographs are truly one of a kind. For your peace of mind, we can scan them while you wait so they never have to leave your possession. If you have a lot of photos to preserve, we can even come to your home and scan them there. For further security, we also backup your digital restorations off site, and we can burn your images onto CD’s or DVD’s so you can safely store digital versions for future generations.

Originals accepted: Any size of B/W and color prints, slides, tintypes and negatives (including glass negatives)

To estimate what it will cost to have your photo restored, you can use the print prices below and our examples of minor, medium, and major restoration jobs. We are happy to provide you with an estimate ahead of doing any work. Simply take a photo of the photo and email that to us. Minor and Medium quotes are firm. Major quotes are estimates but we are usually pretty close in our estimate and we will show you progress before going over the estimate.
