What to expect when you work with us

1. What to expect at the start of your project

We will make arrangements for a consultation.  We offer complimentary estimates via phone and email.  Clients are welcome to arrange to meet with us at our Greensboro studio or mail artifacts for evaluation and a formal quote. 

Once you have deposited your artifact at our studio, a complete and in-depth analysis will be performed, and a formal evaluation, treatment plan, and quote will be drawn up for your project. The Conservator can often provide a firm estimate at your in-person consultation.  In some instances, an additional evaluation will be required to determine the exact treatment required.

3. Project completion with full report

A full Conservation Treatment Report will be provided upon completion of your project.  We reserve the right to stop treatment or refuse a treatment that we deem inappropriate and that may damage the object. 

We take great care to improve the condition and appearance of your works on paper to the full extent possible without risking structural or historical integrity.  We are passionate about the services we provide and the artifacts we preserve.

 

2. The engagement process

Your object(s) will remain at our studio so that we can perform a complete examination and formulate the appropriate treatment. At this stage we will provide you with your treatment proposal.  After reading it, you can let our staff know if you have any questions or concerns.  Once you have reviewed and signed the necessary paperwork, and made a 50% deposit, your artifact is placed in our work queue.

Average turn times vary depending upon backlog and the nature & scope of your project.
