A great way to celebrate your mum’s birthday is with a photo restoration gift. Niamh got in touch with us again with a new photo. This time for her Mum’s birthday she’s had this lovely old photograph restored and coloured using her mum’s advice on clothing colours. The longer I worked on this photo the harder I chuckled. It features her Grandfather with her very young Mum posing… with a monkey… just look at that monkeys face! This photo was printed on our 300gsm Museum rough paper.
The rips and creases in this photo were no issue to us and with her mum’s help the colour advise was a real help… we don’t need to know as we enjoy a little artistic license from time to time.
?Thanks Again Niamh!
Steve got in touch with a fantastic old image of his mother with her parents taken during WW2. This was originally a large photo framed and hung over his grandparents fireplace for decades until his grandmother passed away. Steve’s mum, now 85, was very close to her father and often talks about the time when the photo was taken and how sad she is that the larger, colour tinted one, had been lost.
Steve posted the photo down with a letter containing all the details his mum can remember of the colours. We set to work tidying a couple small areas before hand colouring the photo and producing a set of prints.
We are so happy to have been able to help Steve restore and colour this photo for his mum. Thank you for your custom Steve – It was a real pleasure to work on your photo.
First of all… thank you. This is to all my existing customers who have showed such understanding while we make our adjustments in this difficult time. It had slowed down the process somewhat. What has changed for us? Well at this current moment in time we are unable to offer prints and framing – our supplier has understandably closed the doors for a while for the safety of their staff and by default, everybody else. We are still receiving your photos by post and email – if you are able to scan your own photo as per our scanning guide then please do, this is the preferred method. If this is not possible then please get in touch so we can quote before you send anything out by post.
We’re supplying work digitally – proofs are supplied by email and you will still receive your digital copy immediately after payment has cleared. If you are looking to receive prints or framing, we are happy to take your order and place it in the queue ready for when restrictions are lifted.
Thank you again to everyone who is making this great effort to change the curve during this pandemic. Staying in is the plan so why not dig out those boxes and tins of family memories.
