Preservation Services
  • Custom framing
    You can bring in just about anything, and the Four Corners staff will help you with framing it while preserving it. The art can be flat or 3-dimensional.
  • Restoration and conservation of originals
    Bring in prints, paintings, documents, certificates, letters, maps and more to be restored back to their original states.
  • Digital restoration and archival printing
    With digital restoration your original photo or artwork is left in its existing condition. Four Corners will then scan, digitally correct and enhance, and print a new archival reproduction. This service is perfect if you have photos you want resized or changed in color. They will look good as new and perfect for sharing with family and friends.

In addition to aged photos they can also enrich and print photos off your phone. Want a family beach photo printed on a canvas and embellished with paint or one mounted to acrylic for a frameless look? Four Corners can do all of it. Bring in your phone and the Four Corners staff will help you decide the best printing option for your digital file.
