I am happy to offer restoration service for vintage photographs, lithographs, even more recent photographs which might have been damaged. Photographs deteriorate over time. The paper cracks and becomes discolored, and eventually that image could be lost forever. I lovingly take your images and remove these flaws, then provide you with a high resolution digital copy which you can use to have new prints or other print products made. You can even have images which are not actually photographs restored, such as lithographs or prints of paintings.
I do not currently restore images from 35mm slides. There are companies which specialize in this type of service. I simply do not have the demand required to maintain the necessary equipment for that.
1) Place your photograph on a flat surface in a well-lit area. The best option is to stick it on a wall with a very small piece of tape on the back. Make sure it is set up at your eye level.
2) Take a digital image of your photograph using your camera or the camera on your cell phone. Be sure not to let the glossy paper reflect any light! And, be sure to get level with the image. Fill as much of the frame of your camera as possible.
3) Email me the digital image (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will give you an estimate of cost based on the amount of restoration needed. This usually falls somewhere between $15 and $50 depending on what must be done. Discounts are available for multiple image requests.
4) Pay the invoice I send to you via email once your restored photograph is ready, then you will be able to download the repaired image directly from an online server. You will also have the ability through that server to get the image(s) printed on a variety of papers, canvas, even metal or glass or wood!
Each project has different requirements. The photograph above required a rather substantial amount of work. The price can range anywhere from $15 to $50 per image. The cost depends on what needs to be done. I am happy to provide you with a project estimate for a single image or for a set.
