Display Reproductions and Conservation Framing -
The reason why

Preserving the important images from the past requires a comprehensive approach to ensure the survival of the pictures in optimum condition for the foreseeable future.

Beyond the immediate digital restoration of the image, the resulting photographs need to be made with materials that will stand the test of time and also be protected in ‘conservation’ quality framing to ensure the images are in an environment that is both protective and non-harmful to the pictures.
Everyday framing materials are adequate for ‘disposable’ images of short term interest, but they are not intended for the long term preservation of important images.
We recommend that the images we produce receive ‘Conservation’ quality framing in order to make the most of the archival qualities of the materials we use to create our prints. We offer an extensive selection of modern and traditional frames to complement your restored photographs and we can complete the project with a secure display of the finished work and a digital archive on DVD to ensure the security of the images into the future.

It is often the case that original pictures and documents are made with materials that are not archival in nature.
Pictures that were incidental snapshots at the time can become priceless heirlooms with the passage of time. Newspaper clippings, sketches and letters can all be on materials that will fade and discolour on extended display in frames.
We can create Display Reproductions of these items, especially designed for long term display, enabling the original material to be safely stored out of harm’s way.


Restoration of Damaged and Faded Photographs

Regardless of how damaged your photographs are, chances are we can help.

  • Copy & restoration of damaged photographs
  • Restoration of faded photographs – from both monochrome and colour originals
