Save Money – Why Pay FULL PRICE

Who doesn’t like to SAVE MONEY?

Who likes to pay full price?

One way to save out-of-pocket money getting photos restored is to get relatives to split the COST. If you want your parent(s) to brag to your other siblings what you did, consider footing the bill yourself.

If you have 3 other relatives wanting a photo of ancestors then you could suggest a 4-way split. The tables below show a break down based on having people sharing the cost. Ric will be dealing with one person, and that person will make their own arrangements for getting payment from family members if you are pooling your funds. One receipt text or email showing taxes charged is offered, like at a restaurant with family members getting one check and not separate checks or payments.

Some people will not mind covering the cost to have a photo restored, but do not want to be taking print orders from family or also paying for prints for all relatives. Emailing a copy of the final image, you can tell them to print it themselves.

Ric Wallace offers one final print included in the cost – 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″ or 8.5″ x 11″ depending on the size requested. If you have the intention to frame your restored photo, it can be printed with a white border suitable for framing.

You could scan the photo received (maybe also capturing dust or marks on your scanner or camera)  and email to relatives all over the word in seconds. A copy of a print will lose some quality every time a copy is made.

Consider purchasing a DIGITAL EXACT copy of the FINAL HI-RES photo at 300 DPI (JPG) – for an additional fee.

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 like at Walmart, drug stores or home printers will vary in quality.

Think of it like a lottery pool where people share their money and share the win – a restored family photo at a percentage of what they would have paid footing the bill themselves. You can act as the group captain to collect or get commitments and all can share the file. How you handle this is up to you. Having others pool their money could mean more photos restored.
