A Guide to Pricing
The prices for restorations, retouching, enhancements, digital sketches and paintings below are a guideline only. Although each photograph is assessed and quoted individually the following guideline has been provided to allow you to get and idea of the prices range your job may fall into. Each job has different variables such as service required, damage to the photo, size, composition, paper type used, problems within the photo, framing ect. Therefore these prices here can only serve as a guide. You will be given a firm quote for your job before you place your order and before your job is started. These prices are subject to change without notice.
Once as we quote a price we will stand by it, providing you do not change your requirements. Should you change requirements we reserve the right to adjust the price accordingly.
Please NoteDue to the increasing problem of fraud on the internet we are no longer accepting orders without a deposit of at least 50% of the quoted price. We have been trusting in the past but unfortunately our trust has been abused by unscrupulous people who want us to do work for them and then try to avoid paying for it. Therefore we have reluctantly decided that a deposit is required BEFORE we commence any job over the internet.
