Giving the GIFT of ART by ARTographer Ric Wallace will be a cherished item for years to come. Google his name “Ric Wallace” to see what he has done & created and why he is famous. A collectibles dealer in BC said his postcards, greeting cards, Lucky Coins, pins, photos could be considered an investment of value in the future. Ric Wallace is making no claims of future increased value, but it would be an honor in 50 or 100+ years if people are selling his stuff on #ebay or taking it for valuation on the Antiques Road Show. This image is available in two sizes: photo prints you can frame yourself, matted prints to be put into a frame, or ready to hang with a Certificate Of Authenticity.

Photo Restoration By ARTographer Ric Wallace – AKA Mr White Rock BC

Photo Restoration By Ric Wallace

Old, torn and sometimes photos in two or more pieces can be restored to their original state or better. Ric Wallace does a high resolution scan from your original image and electronically uses a computer to do the retouching and corrections. High quality photographic prints can be obtained from the computer file. The computer file can be supplied on CD/ DVD, USB, or downloaded from the internet to ensure exact copies can be made for years to come, with no loss in quality like prints made from negatives which will degrade over time.

Ric Wallace can bring FADED or partially lost PHOTOS back to LIFE

Ric Wallace has been restoring photos for years first by using an airbrush and fine tip brushes. With the mainstream use of computers, Ric has disposed of the darkroom equipment and chemicals, and instead uses  computers, digital cameras, high res scanners, and various computer programs, photo printers, mat cutter, etc.
Computers have changed the way things are now done, but the basics or old way things were done gives Ric a Virtual Edge over other people offering Photo Restoration.

Many stores may offer photo restoration as they get someone else to do the work and markup the price. When you hire Ric Wallace you are talking to the organ grinder and not the monkey like at retail stores.

Consider purchasing a DIGITAL EXACT copy of the FINAL HI-RES photo at 300 DPI (JPG) – for an additional fee. (not included with standard packages)
Digital files maybe kept on our storage devices for a limited time and may be deleted without notice after services are rendered and paid in full. Customers who purchased digital files are recommended to have many copies on disk, USB and/or cloud based storage. Digital computer files do not fade or disappear like old negatives or prints. Making prints from-the high res digital files will allow the highest quality image to be printed. Sharing this file means family or friends can look after getting their own prints with their own money, saving you $$$. Using output services such as Walmart, drug stores or home printers will vary in quality.
PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT allowed to copy photographs that have a copyright stamp or symbol on them, such as school photos, team photos, magazines, newspapers, etc. If you have a photo with a stamp on the back please contact the listed person or company for reprints. If the photographer has passed away or the company is out of business we would have to review the situation. Anyone with an original negative film will be considered the lawful owner of the image. Any prints or digital files are your property to do with as you wish, once paid in full. Any future reprints would have to be ordered by you or have your approval in writing.
We need the photo supplied loose -- not framed or behind glass. Photos larger than 8.5" x 11" will have to copied using a camera on a tripod as opposed to scanning on a high resolution flatbed scanner. These will have a higher cost to digitize the image as it is considered a photography service, not a scanning service.
We reserve the right to refuse to copy obscene, offensive, unlawful or objectionable materials. Please contact us for any concerns you may have.

Ric works his magic and has even taken passport photographs, restored them to a better than original state, and produced quality photographic enlargements for wall display. This service is invaluable for genealogy enthusiasts trying to put together family albums.

Old, faded, and cracked photographs can be brought back to life with our expert digital restoration techniques.
