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.

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.

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.
