Pictures are often tossed inside of a box, envelope, album or worse, free floating in a drawer or in a pile up in the attic.

Portrait in Charcoal

Portrait in Charcoal

A client came to us with two mid 1800′s charcoal portraits of members his family.  Obviously the hands of time had gotten a hold of the paper and done some serious damage to the original drawings.  Because of the delicate nature of these particular prints, we used digital capture as opposed to scanning to minimize...
