At Orchard Arts we have over 15 years experience doing museum quality restorations of negatives and prints.
At Orchard Arts we create digitally remastered, museum quality fine art restoration prints that are faithful to the original paper quality, color fidelity, sharpness and period correct typeface metrics. Restoration is done by careful color analysis, color correction, high magnification spotting and repair of the print surface. Repositioning of the plate typefaces and image cropping is done to better accommodate the final print size and for aesthetic appeal. The final restoration print is made with archival pigment ink on acid free fine art paper. The results are museum quality prints that have the same richness, longevity and fidelity as when they were first made.
