5 Stars Highly recommend. Very fast response and restored a 1970’s 3x3 photo while I waited and enlarged to a more useful size. Also provided print copies as well as digital files all for a reasonable price.

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!
