The Process of Photograph Restoration

Our trained technicians have years of knowledge and first hand experience in handling irreplaceable photographs, artwork and artifacts.  Rest assured, your original family heirlooms will be in good hands. We perform all services in house.

Step 1: Schedule an appointment (call 703-684-0005)

You will need to schedule an appointment to come in with the items you wish to have restored.  We will review the pieces and give you a price for the digital restoration.  If you are not local and need to mail your photographs we will ask you to take some snap shots of the items you want restored and we will give you a rough estimate of the price.  It is only when we have taken a look at the piece in person that we can get an accurate idea of the extent of the restoration needed and give you a firm price.

Step 2: Scanning of original ($75 per picture)

We scan the photograph using a method that is least intrusive to the piece.  If your photograph is too delicate to put on a flat bed scanner we have a digital capturing system that allows us to scan an item without touching the front of the picture.  We will use the safest method of scanning for your piece.  Your photograph does not have to be perfectly flat for us to scan it for restoration. The digital capturing system also allows us to shoot framed pieces without having to remove them from the frame.

Step 3: Digital Restoration ($125-$375 based on amount of damage to repair)

Our technicians digitally restore and fix most, if not all, imperfections that are present in your original artifact.  Our pricing is based on the amount of damage and the number of hours it will take to restore.  We have a range of pricing categories to accommodate for all levels of degradation.

Step 4: Printing

One final proof up to 12″ will be included in the restoration price.  Additional prints will be billed according to our normal pricing based on the printing surface you have chosen. Let us know the number and size of prints want and we will help you figure out your print cost.
