Photographs of precious moments are the greatest gifts relatives can leave behind for their descendants, aside from genes for cowlick-resistant hair or hints to where the inheritance is buried. Pass on a transgenerational treasure with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of photo-restoration services at Pittsburgh Custom Darkroom. This Groupon can also be applied toward framing services.
Pittsburgh Custom Darkroom's still-life specialists use digital technology to save vintage photographs that have been stained, spotted, torn, faded, cracked, and bleached. Picture fixers first consult with patrons to determine a restoration estimate and their favorite Civil War general. Snapshots return to their former glory with light (approximately $75–$100), medium (approximately $100–$150), medium/heavy (approximately $150–$200), and heavy (approximately $200–$300) restorations. During the process, a professional scans the image and produces up to an 8"x10" archival print (larger prints incur an additional cost), thus saving treasured memories of family vacations or alien abductions.
