Presidential RestorationMany families own important documents, family information, Civil War documents, old marriage certificates(which may be color or black-and-white). We can mend , tears, lighten paper, relax (unroll) the paper, deacidify, retouch, and provide photographic copies so that everyone in the family can have a copy.

Just a few of the documents and antique posters we have restored include those signed, and sometimes written, by:

  • Abraham Lincoln (several)
  • George Washington
  • James Monroe
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • John Adams
  • Albreacht Durer
  • Paul Gauguin
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Rembrandt

Embrittled antique maps with tears, creases, and punctures, can all be restored. We can add new support using a linen-backed process, which can protect the map from future tears. After mending, tears can be reinforced and retouched. All of this work can be reversed in the future.

The most common posters restored are antique movie posters.
