Basic photo editing as requesting
How the Process works:
You send us your original photo's, or artwork, along
with detailed instructions detailing what you would like to have done.
For mailing instructions please refer to the
Contact US page for information.
We prepare a cost estimate for you and send it back to your email address.
You review and accept the cost estimate, and make a deposit either through money order,
personal check (could take up to 30 days to clear) or through
PayPal (our preferred method of payment).
Upon the receipt of your payment the work is commenced.
We complete the required repair work and send an email to you with an attached thumbnail of the repaired item.
You review and accept the work -- or request changes. We then incorporate the requested
changes and send a sample to you for approval (step 5). If we cannot provide satisfactory results to you,
we have the right to return any items to you, refund any monies paid in advance and will charge only a
small shipping fee to return to you any items that you may have sent to us.
Upon final acceptance, the balance of the estimate (less the deposit) plus shipping charges
are paid in full, and the completed work is send back to you.
All of our estimates are free of charge. If you have shipped us your originals,
a minimum shipping charge will apply.
As with any serious profession, we do need to see the photograph or item requiring
the repair or restoration prior to providing you with our final estimate. Without seeing the item,
an estimate is only guess that runs the risk of unpleasant surprises for all of those involved.
In order to provide you with an accurate estimate, we need one of the following from you:
A high resolution scanned digital image of the item emailed to us or sent to us on CD-ROM
A scanned low-resolution file or a digital photo of the artwork attached to your
e-mail (such a file is probably not good enough for quality photo editing or restoration work)
Either a color Xerox copy of the item or the item itself.
Shortly after receiving your request, we will send the estimate to your e-mail address.
Please review it, and if accepted, please confirm your acceptance by an e-mail message. Also, send us
your payment (by check, money order or PayPal) so we could begin our repair work.
Approval of the final image:
Upon completion of the final image, a digital thumbnail of the final image
will be sent to your e-mail address for your approval. You will be able to examine the
image on-screen and indicate your changes, if any.
If you request changes, we will make our best efforts to incorporate those
into the image. Once completed and you will receive the new version for your approval.
This cycle may be repeated several times until we have it right. If, after all our attempts,
you are still not satisfied, we shall return to you your originals and your payment
(less the cost of shipping your originals back to you).
Upon receipt of your final approval, we will produce the final image in the
format(s) you have chosen (TIFF, Jpeg, CD-ROM) and copies of the image in quantities you
ordered, if any. We will also return to you all your originals.
