Photo restoration, scanning, and archiving

Custom framing   Shadow boxes
Custom mirrors   Photos on canvas   Photo restoration and scanning


You often don’t realize there is a problem until you take a look at your photo collection after many years of storage.
You will often notice that many old photos have an orange or red cast that obscures the photo colors, or black and white photos have turned yellow. Once restored, the photos can be copied to CD/DVD or flash drive for long-term storage.
We can even put people into photos or take them out or open closed eyes. Your choice!
What’s important that your originals will remain untouched.
We can handle your photo restoration from start to finish.
Scan… Restore… Save… Print… Frame.
We can help you to create a digital archive, which could be duplicated for all family members.

"After more than 15 years of framing everything under the sun, I can honestly say that this place is awesome. Thank you for all of these years of great service, with many more frames to come. Hopefully we will have some wall space left!"

Mike Leeney, Calabasas

"Striving Artists' framing business went well over my expectations and then some! I am truly grateful and impressed with their professionalism and honesty. Thank you."

"OMG!!! I've been framing with Striving Artists since 1993. All of my pieces are so amazing. I love working with J, Boris and Marina. They always guide me towards the most artistic and creative frames... But this most recent piece is above and beyond all my expectations! My Arthur Parton painting circa 1870 looks like I stole it out of the Louvre in Paris! Wow! If you want a one of a kind frame, you must go to Striving Artists! You won't be disappointed."
