Sebastian restored an old family portrait (1918) that had become faded and actually broken into pieces. This picture was in a fragile state and so I was concerned about turning it over to anyone. I was very impressed not only with Sebastian's artistic capabilities in performing a flawless restoration, but also with the care and concern he showed both about the photo itself as well as my satisfaction with the final result.
The picture came out perfect, better than I could have imagined; so much so that whenever someone in the family sees it they usually want a copy, and so I have been running back to Sebastian to have him frame additional copies for me. I highly recommend Sebastian and am thankful that I chose him for this project.Norman
It gives me a great pleasure to send you a copy of our new publication, Early Years. I'm sure that you will find it very edifying. Thank you for your great work and your professionalism.
Sebastian did an excellent job preserving and restoring my family photos and documents. He was meticulous, attentive, and most important, trustworthy -- after all, I left irreplaceable family items in his care and he treated them as his own. I strongly and without reservation recommend that you see Sebastian if you need preservation / restoration services; simply put, he's the best!Lucas
Super fast, professional, and a joy to work with. Sebastian helped us with a key photo for our documentary. He worked during the holidays to meet our deadline, and he did an excellent job salvaging a damaged photo.Chad Cracia
What can I say? Sebastian is a miracle worker! His restoration of some very damaged photos, pre WWII, is nothing short of remarkable. His meticulous work has helped bring back to life my relatives who perished in the Holocaust. His work will be featured in the CD booklet for my humble project to remember my Uncle Norbert.

Went to Sebastian to restore old photos, and to digitize childhood photos to use for a slide show and to display for my upcoming wedding. Wasn't sure what to expect, but his pricing was fair, and I received everything on time, exactly when promised. Most importantly, everything turned out perfect! Sebastian is definitely talented, and does a great and professional job. Highly recommended!!
Loved the work that Sebastian did on a 1778 newspaper I had. Great restoration and great scans; I recommend him highly!
The work is simply beautiful and I know that it will be admired by friends and family for years to come. You have a customer for life!Thanks,
Sebastian is very easy to work with, flexible & kind. His quality of work in restoration is: impeccable, faultless, more than amazing -- flawless.Maria
Thankfully, Mr. Wintermute beautifully restored these priceless images to broadcast-quality and infinitely enriched our final piece.Jesse Landberg
I have a Navy Commission letter signed by President Lincoln. It is on velum which from what I understand is a difficult thing to work with. Needless to say it had seen its better days. I purchased it in a broken frame and glass with a ton of wrinkles in it.
I contacted several different companies, sent photos and my explanation of what I wished done. No one would touch it.
I came to you and you were more than willing to work with me. I can't say enough of how pleased I am with your performance in this.
It's not easy to trust someone you've never met with thousands of dollars worth of documents however you put me at ease and the final product was excellent.
In 1897, our ancestor was a recent immigrant to the United States. The certificate was torn, faded, darkened and carried just about every impediment to legibility which one could imagine. However, you proceeded diligently and with care to rejuvenate this 1897 document into nearly good as new condition. It was a pleasure to work with you.Very truly yours,
I am extremely pleased with the result, and I wanted to acknowledge my complete satisfaction with your service and the end product.
I've recommended your services to other friends in the space collecting hobby.
All the best,
The improvements made to these photos were astounding! I didn't think they could look so good. The restoration brought out so many details and facial features no longer discernible in the originals, while also maintaining the distinctive hues and tones of the originals. The photos made excellent Christmas presents this year and added some beautiful visual archives to my family's ancestry and history.Chris
