Things We Can Do To Help - Print From Print
Print from Print
What you want, what you really, really want.
Often a photo is all you have to remind you of someone that you love.
Which is pretty powerful stuff. But photos, like everything, degrade over time and if you don’t have the negative or if the photo is already old and starting to fade, this can be a worry.
This is where we can help. Even if you haven’t got the negative, we can make prints of your photos from the original picture.
The industry calls this “print from print”, because we make a (new) print from your (original) print. It’s not a difficult or risky process; we simply scan your original picture to create a hi-resolution digital file of it and then print the resulting file. Of course, we use professional quality scanners which are specifically calibrated to acheive the best results for particular types of original photos and use the resulting file to create a real photo.
Once scanned, we can process the resulting digital file of your picture, in exactly same way as any other digital image. So, we can, crop it, enlarge it or modify and use it, in pretty much anyway you want.
If, by chance, you wanted us to give Great Aunt Nelly the Banksy treatment and and put her on a T-Shirt, it’d be our pleasure…
but maybe Great Aunt Nelly would prefer to be remembered with just a little more reverance.
Top Tip: If you want to take a print from a photo that has been in a photo frame for many years, be very careful before you try to remove the photo from the frame. Over time, moisture can get between the photo and the glass, which can cause the inks on the photo to stick to glass. If the ink’s adhesion to the glass is greater than adhesion to the paper, trying to remove the photo will ruin it.
Seemingly random irrelevant Factoids that bring it all together in the end (sort of): The picture isn’t actually our Great Aunt Nelly. It is a picture of the formidable, Lady Mary Elizabeth Windeyer, 1st President of the Womanhood Suffrage League, circa 1890, which explains (in my head) the, otherwise hopelessly anachronistic, references to Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginge and Dangerously Thin.
