At the present time, we are accepting good quality photos requiring little to no retouching. We reserve the right to reject any photo. Should the subject matter be in good condition, while the background is not, minor scratches can be restored, or a suitable replacement background can be applied in some cases, upon request, and for an additional fee.

Once a quote has been agreed upon, work on the photo will be initiated, and customer will be billed. Upon completion of a colorized photo, a smaller proof copy will be presented to the customer for approval. If adjustments are necessary, a new proof will be issued once adjustments are made. When approval has been given, the final unwatermarked photo will be issued via e-mail.

First photo adjustment is included following the proof copy. Additional adjustments are extra.
