Services

What do we do?

We prevent and slow down the deterioration of your treasures.  Our treatment will add decades and centuries to their lives.  They will be ready for carefree handling, storage and viewing. We repair, reassemble, neutralize acid, preserve and protect using modern professional methods of conservation.  All of our archival supplies are the same ones museums and libraries use.

 

Why choose us?
