2020 Reviews and Testimonials from Our Clients

Here are some of the emails that we received from clients in 2020.  They are very happy with our photo restoration, retouching, and repair of damaged old photographs, and you will be too!

DISCLAIMER: These reviews are generally representative of what our clients write, although most clients don’t comment either positively or negatively. Just a very few clients have sent complaints. We do not provide any discounts, freebies or other incentives in exchange for favorable reviews, and we do not request testimonials from our clients…but we are happy to receive them!

These reviews and comments are the real deal.

The photograph was very deteriorated (creases, torn and tape), and we were able to restore it to relatively good condition: I Love it!!! Thank you so much. Please send me the bill. Job well done!! It brought tears to my eyes.

  • From a new client who sent three black-and-white photos for restoration: Looks wonderful Miles, thank you. Please send the payment link.
