We take your Old photographs and make Archival CDs and Digital Prints

Your photographs are handled with care. They are photographed and returned to you in the same condition as we received them.

Always label your prints, write the subjects names on the back. A print with names is worth a fortune. A print without names is a mere curiosity.

Copying and Archiving

  1. Your treasured photographs are fading. A typical color photograph has at best a 50 year life span, many fade in only a few years. Deciding who possesses cherished family photographs, especially after the passing of a loved one, can divide a family. We will create a high resolution digital original which will perfectly preserve your photographs and allow you to share these original images with friends, organizations or your entire family. Digital archived reproductions are guaranteed to be as good as or better than the original and they will never fade. If you need prints, ours are guaranteed not to fade for 80 years or more and are nearly impervious to water damage. Digitally archived photographs are delivered to you on special long life DVDs, additionally, we maintain an archive of your photographs at no extra charge to help ensure you will never lose them in the event of theft or fire.

    $0.20 each for ten or more

  2. On the wall in my home hangs many irreplaceable documents including the marriage certificate seen below. It is of course one of a kind and it seems reckless of me to expose it to sunlight and other harsh conditions. in reality it is a digital reproduction, the original is kept in a climate controlled container far from the fading light of the sun. I can always make another. I would like to extend this service to you.

    $18 including 11x14 Print. Additional charge if restoration is requested.

 

Images are delivered in a digital format that can be viewed on any computer or printed at any photo service.  We do not reproduce any images that may be copy written, a release from the holder of the copy write is required before we can reimage any recent professional photographs.
