Conservation safe and protective framing options can also be offered by our specialist technicians, ensuring that paper is kept away from damaging acids and chemicals found in everyday mounts or backing boards.
In addition to this, UV protective glazing is available to prevent your precious document from fading. Any work on paper is highly susceptible to fading, so this is always recommended for ongoing safety.
Although my print was badly degraded by the artist's use of double-sided tape and an acidic backing mount, it had great emotional significance for me. It felt like a risky leap of faith to send it as I had not used Fine Art Restoration Company before. It came back immaculate and transformed, returned to its original condition and with no discernable damage to the subtle graphite drawing. The company were reassuring and returned it with no hassle. Highly recommended.
We sent in a very mouldy print that came back probably in better condition than when it was bought! We were constantly updated as to the status of the restoration and the service was impeccable. We had previously sent in a small oil painting for cleaning that now hangs in pride of place. Both had sentimental value of familiar places. I can highly recommend the quality of the work and the fantastic customer service.
