From a name you can trust!
We have been doing restorations for over 20 years, we are the only restoration company in southern Alberta that uses special archival paper in printing your restored images.
As an addition Paterson Photography can handle prints from wallet size to wall size (Unlike many places we have no size limit on original prints).
At Paterson Photography we do work for may individuals and companies. We can restore from one image to thousands.
When disaster strikes the one thing people grab are the photos. At Paterson Photography we understand this and we can help you preserve your memories for today and tomorrow. We can restore old, torn, ripped and faded photos to new or even better condition. We work from prints, negatives, slides, digital files and more. We NEVER alter the original image, in fact we can usually return the original to you in minutes.
Fire, smoke, flood, moisture, vandalism and more - We can look after it!
I offer free consultations on what can / should be done to your image (s) and will let you know before I start the entire price, NO surprises!!!!!
With each print many factors can influence how much work is required but the following will help in deciding the restoration level that is required.

E) Custom - For images that require major work such as adding another person, removing person, changing background - A quote will be given for this level.
With all work we will digitize the image for you, complete requested work and if you like provide you with a CD containing a high resolution image.
Coffee colored original, starting to fade with a tear and some folds. Cleaned up original in black and white then at the request of the customer colored to add a more modern look.
Original print was fading and washing out to the point that you could hardly see the words on the wagon. Contrast was added back in to the image and the words were darkened to the original level.
Plus, we offer our memory making service that takes your old photographs and puts them onto CD or DVD, along with information about the photos. What a great way to not only preserve the photos, but the story behind each photo. In addition to having the photos and the story, the CD or DVD acts as a digital negative, so if anything should ever happen to the originals you can print from the digital negatives and replace the lost photos.
Take a look at the services that we offer, and don't delay in calling us. One day may be too long as it only takes a second to loose a lifetime of memories.
