We’ve also become an effective channel for new work for our partners, directing traffic from our nationally prominent website to their stores.

Why do we want to work with you?
We’re a niche service provider
We need to connect with customers in far-flung places.
We need on the ground points of contact
Although AusPost is extremely reliable, most of our prospective customers are reluctant to send us their precious photos and documents by post.
Quality input = quality output
By working closely with other businesses, we can ensure they’re equipped with good scanners and get the best results from them.
Snail mail is slow – and getting slower. Using Dropbox to receive and send files is instantaneous.
Picture framing is the perfect allied service
Framers’ own customers frequently request restoration services, on top of the work we send to the framers.
Australian small business
We’re a small business and enjoy working with other small businesses around the country.

We are a well-established business

We send customers to you
Our website has strong exposure nationally. If you’re a listed partner, we can direct customers to your shop.

Minimal setup costs
A scanner, computer, an internet connection and a free Dropbox account is all you need.

For those who prefer not to disclose the arrangement, we can provide restoration samples for your website and tips for getting on the front page of Google for photo restoration searches.
How it Works
The process from start to finish.
Step 1: Customer Acquisition
Customers come in through Google business listing / our marketing efforts / your in-store promotion.
Step 2: Quote
Refer to restoration price guide to help assess the pricing tier. For a rapid response quote, take a snapshot of the photo using your smartphone and SMS it to us.
Step 3: Scan the image
Scan the photo to your local drive. Rename the file with the info we need – your store code, job ID and pricing code – and then drag the file into the New Projects folder in Dropbox. That’s it, the order is placed.
Step 4: We restore the photo
When the job is done, you’ll get an email to say the restored file is in the Complete Projects folder in Dropbox. We’ll post prints within two business days, if ordered.
Step 5: You take payment
Email the customer the link we send you so they can download the restored digital file, and share with family and friends (and tell them about our service!)
Step 6: We invoice you
We charge you our trade price for the work. For higher volume locations we can send a statement at the end of each month.
We’ll provide these things to help you get up and running quickly.
