Terms and Conditions
Estimates for restorations can be given on receipt of the scanned* photograph. Low resolutions scans are acceptable for initial estimates (1Mb) but in some case, higher resolution scans may be requested. In the event of a particularly challenging restoration where timescales need to be extended, you will be notified by email and the options discussed. Quotes valid for 3 months.*If you wish to have a photo restored please email a high-resolution scan at least 3000 pixels on its longest size or a 4Mb low compression JPEG file. If you work in megapixels then 6 or more is preferred, See how to order
By agreeing for us to proceed with the work, it is seen a commitment between both parties. For us to provide a restored image and for the client to work with us, to bring the order to completion and payment. Not all images can be restored 100%. We will happily make numerous revisions to an image, to the original quote and within reason, and to a level of restoration that the image will allow. Any major reworking or complete reorganising of your image will be quoted for. Restorations are priced by the level of damage and fit into various grades. See pricing.
Print time scales: We post to you around 4-6 working days, from the time you have paid for your order. For speed, you can opt to print yourself with a “digital only” order where you send in a scan to be restored.
Posting original photographs is ok, provided they are posted by Special Delivery Service by Royal Mail for the highest level of insurance and tracking should it get lost in the system. If your images are family heirlooms or treasured memories its best use the safest postal method. Use plenty of cardboard to stop the photos from bending and damage.
Please include an email address and phone number and your address and name in your package. We will post back via Royal Mail Special Delivery and the cost of this will be added to the restoration. We regret that In the eventuality that no restoration can be performed the returns cost must be paid.
