Photos, slides, negatives all fade over time. Plus, they can tear, get water damage, mold problems and many more tragedies can befall them. But, don’t worry. We can save them with our museum-quality scanning and excellent photo art skills.
We provide you with your original item, the museum-quality scan of that item and the restored digital file saved to an archival-quality DVD. We can also make beautiful prints on our 200 year lifetime archival printer.
We develop individual strategies for each item. Having completed thousands of restorations over the years, we can almost always determine the cause of the damage and have a pretty good idea what the original looked like. You can bring the photo into our lab or simply take a digital photograph with your phone and we can make recommendations and provide an estimate for its repair.
FREE help organizing your photos
We have professional organizers on staff to help you. We provide in-home organizing services throughout the states of California, Nevada and Utah. We also travel throughout North America to help organize larger collections. This personalized process includes labeling, dating and physically preparing your photos for digitizing and long-term storage. Our regular fee is $125 per hour, plus travel expenses. If you are located in our three state region, we provide up to three hours of organizing service at no charge with orders of $1000 or more.
What do I get back?
That’s a great question. First, we will return your original photos in archival packaging, ready for long-term storage. The digital copies will be organized in the order given to us and foldered as instructed. We recommend using large index cards and/or ziplock bags to separate different groups of photos. You can write the name of the group on the index card and we will name the folder what you have written on the card. This makes the collection easy to navigate and sensible to the people you share it with. We will make you one set of archival quality DVDs and you can also ask us to make you USB flash drives, hard drives and a cloud upload. We suggest getting clear on your end goal and talking this out with us before you start organizing.
