At Memory Lane you will find a staff of professionals well versed in the art of printmaking and photo restoration. We take great pride in producing high quality reproductions of these captured moments of our American history.
The process begins with the high resolution scanning of original prints or negatives from historical society archives. Our technicians then restore faded images, retouch significant cracks and tears, and remove stains that have damaged the image over time, while still maintaining the antique look of the image. Using the highest quality archival inks, we then print the image on a heavy weight matte paper using the latest in digital printmaking technology. The end result is a premium color or black & white historical photograph that will be part of your collection for many years. Or if you prefer your black & white prints with an aged patina, you can order sepia colored images (see samples below) from black & white originals at a slightly higher price.
Our prints are not mass-produced. They are custom printed as you order them or in small runs for inventory at your local historical society. Print sizes include: 8" x 10", 11" x 14", 16" x 20", 20" x 24", and 24" x 30" and are printed with a ¼" border. Prints up to 16" x 20" come sealed in an acid-free poly bag and are shipped flat. Larger print sizes are rolled and shipped in a mailing tube. All prints include a certificate that gives a brief description of the image. Like any piece of collectable art, these prints should be handled with care and kept out of contact with moisture and direct sunlight.
In addition to the standard print sizes, we can reproduce these images on several different substrates, and at any custom size. Vinyl, canvas, watercolor paper, and many other substrates are available for custom orders. Please contact us if you need more information on our custom services.
