Ms D.D. Ipswich

Found this image of my dad after he died, really badly damaged, but you restored it so well we displayed it at dad's funeral. Not only was the price half what other companies are charging, your sensitivity, kindness and understanding of what we wanted was incredible; especially the funeral service sheets. Thank you so much.

Mrs D.F Suffolk

We love all 8 of the images you recently restored for us. We had been told by our local printers (who offered restoration) that they were unable to do anything with any of the images. You have transformed the coloured image and the newspaper restorations are incredible. Thank you so much; please feel free to use any of the images on your website. We will be back!
