Although I prefer to see an item prior to quoting on restoration prices, here are some guidelines and samples that will help you determine an average cost for the work:

Things you should know: I have the capability to work from original photographs/art, 35mm slides, and negatives. Original pieces that are larger than 8" x 10" require more work, hence cost more. Enlargements are possible up to 13" x 19" but depend on the quality of the original. Some items are not suitable for enlargement. Groups of photographs that a customer would like restored for use in a collage are quoted with a discount.

I use archival, matte surface papers for all of my restoration work. Output is done with Chromium Dyes. All work is archived for one year should additional prints be requested. CD's of finished work are available for sharing your memories via email.

Each restoration has a story behind it. I give my clients renewed access to slices of their life and families by providing realistic assessments of "what's possible". When dealing with a treasured memory, it ceases to be "just about the money". If you're not happy, I'm not happy.
