How to Order
There are many ways to order, that's why you may want to call before you do anything. We can discuss what works best for you.
Local clients may call 619-397-7600 for an appointment to drop off the photos and pick them up when they are ready.
TURN AROUND TIME We can complete your restoration in 8-10 business days... most people are not in any RUSH but if you need it now we can have it done in two days with a RUSH FEE of $50. Upon completion, with time permitting, we will return your originals and finished archival quality photo via US mail or FedEx, unless other arrangements are made to pickup as soon as they are ready.
VACATION LOCATION If you live in southern California and rather not put your photos in the mail and do not have a scanner, this is for you. We are well known among genealogist and they will travel far, to have us restore their photos. They make plans to do some sightseeing in the area and include having their photos scanned as part of the trip. Good idea! Call for an appointment.
So E-mailing is your preference....start by scanning your photo at a minimum of 300dpi, and e-mail it to us at: Restorations@PhotosMadePerfect.com. If the file is to large you may have to send one photo per message or contact us for further instructions on uploading your files to our website. If you want to enlarge the photo, you must scan it at a higher dpi depending on how small the photo is and how large you want to make it. Read "Scanning Topics" or contact us for instruction on uploading to our site.
Upon your approval of the quote, a payment can be made using personal check or money order. There will be a $25. fee for returned checks. If for any reason you are not satisfied we will attempt to resolve your concerns. If we are unable to and you return the work to us within 30 days of receipt for a full refund of your down payment.
Methods of Payment
Full payment upfront is preferred and always appreciated. If you prefer, we will accept 50% down payment before we begin restoration, and the balance when you receive the finished work. Other arrangements can be made, if you have had work by us before and have developed a working relationship with us over time. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards from walk-ins and credit cards by phone and PayPal online. Credit card users will be charged 3.75% of total and .15 extra for credit by phone.
If you have a PayPal account, you can contact us by e-mail or phone. Send us your image in any form of your choice and after we have evaluated and given you a quote either by phone or email, you can come to this page and use this button to make a payment.
Photos Made Perfect by US Mail Nationwide
Many clients nationwide send us original photos (by mail or e-mail) with a check and directions of what they have in mind. They estimate how much 50% down payment would be, after looking at the "Estimate Guide" page. We do the restorations, invoice for the balance and mail them the restored copy when full payment is made. That simple.
Be sure to package your photos properly to avoid damaged (PMP is not responsible for lost or damage photos), then mail them using a traceable carrier such as UPS, Emery, Airborne, or Fed-Ex (we have yet to lose any photographs by these methods). You can include a self addressed pre-paid envelope from the same company to accommodate your original and the size of the photo you ordered. If you don't want to include return shipping materials, we can add the shipping cost to the invoice, you can pay the balance and after we receiving the balance we ship you the finished work.
It's a huge mistake to choose a restoration service based on price or distance from your home alone.
Compare apples to apples.
