paper conservator consultation
Your needs are important. The typical consultation procedure begins with a technical examination of the object, followed by a discussion of the owner's needs and concerns. We will talk about any artistic issues that may affect treatment. Andrea will assess the condition problems with an eye to preventing future deterioration.

We then make detailed treatment recommendations and provide our clients with realistic cost estimates and completion schedules.

Paper conservation restoration and preservation
Andrea Pitsch Conservation provides a wide spectrum of treatment strategies:

Basic conservation to stabilize deterioration or damage to an object. This may include removal of surface grime, deacidification, repair of minor flaws or weaknesses and reversal of previous harmful treatment.
More involved structural restoration, stain removal and loss compensation.
Preservation such as proper housing, hinging and matting to deter future damage or deterioration.

Additionally, we can make recommendations for museum-quality matting and framing or archival storage to protect and preserve the object.

While museum-quality conservation treatment can be a time-consuming process, Andrea Pitsch Conservation has the staff, resources, and flexibility to expedite projects when objects are urgently needed for photography, exhibition or sale.
