DIGITAL RESTORATION OF AN EXTREMELY DAMAGED DOCUMENT

This award certificate from the American Games is a great example of sports memorabilia restoration. The repeated folding caused tears along the seams and clear tape was used to piece it together resulting in extensive chemical damage to the document. In addition the top of the document was missing completely.

The extensive damage required digital restoration as the only option to save this document and make it possible to display. The background was cleaned and all tape residue and minor damage were retouched. The missing areas were filled in and the top of the document carefully painted in.
