No other photo restorer offers so much, for so little, as we offer the best photo restoration and photo services.
As photo artists, we have a meticulous keen eye on detail, well-versed, always better than others, at low price.
PixSavers is the greatest source of photo artists - expert photo technicians - for only the best will do their job.
With restoration, a photo artist is like a conceptual artist - its not about abstracts - its about recovering photos.
Imagine your photo, dull, damaged. Making changes can renew a photo to brilliance, impressing your family.
A photo-artist works with photo damage to its finish, retaining its original aspect to get back photo excellence.
Beginning in 1999 we were first to restore 1836-1917 tintype photos. Others thought old photos were, too old.
Our tintype photo restorer is an expert-historian who can give an approximate year of an antique tintype photo.
We handle photos with care - as if they were our own. You'll get back photographs in the same way you saw.
We restore photos for legacy, if its for an ancestor, or for a high-res genealogy copy, we'll retain your original.
PixSavers established new, low pricing standards, becoming an industry leader, as other restorers followed.
For a few years we lead our industry in pricing while PixSavers marketed strongly, directly, persistently tough.
We lowered pricing 40% with persistence, only to keep pricing low as other restorers nationwide kept in step.
We don't increase pricing for having a Microsoft engineer on-staff who teaches technology to our photo artists.
Our owner, Steve Lehman is a former Microsoft engineer turned photo artist and tintype photo expert, historian.
PixSavers photo artists are the best as their technique comes from software engineer training on the software.
Aside from restoring, we'll archive your entire photo collection. It's best to rescue your photos before it's too late.
They will fade if photos are kept in damp areas, dusty shoe boxes, in plastic sticky-albums. They will fade away.
We'll take good care of your photos, preserve your legacy, as we digitize them on archival discs for future family.

About the PixSavers' Company Logo
Made by a graphic designer in color, our logo is a simple continuous movement of flowing layers.
Colors are drawn with precision, relating to an exact dimension in size, length, spacing and flow.
What appears to be a rainbow is a color wheel which illustrates photo artistic imaging processes.
On the right is an example of how photo art and graphics are made in layers to a flattened object.
Each layer is dissected, manipulated, saved, reassembled, reused, blended, stacked, collapsed.
This same layering process is what we utilize in our digital photo restoration process to a finish.
Our logo, layered "rainbow" in a color wheel is an example of our photo work progress.
Art colleges have studied our logo, as students copy our format to develop new logos.
No 'Magic Buttons' in Photo Software
Our professionals don't use magic buttons in software, as we restore photo with work.
Professional digital tools are manual. Art tools as "magic" produces more problems.
The magic is in the photo artist in tedious creative movements, consistent intelligence.
Artistically, we use real art tools. Digitally, our art tools work the same as manual tools.
All photos are planned, worked through, team-inspected, re-worked, inspected again.
When a photo artist finishes, satisfaction abounds, like Van Gogh artistry.
Our Conceptual Advertising Graphics
Our own advertising and our sense of humor is the best ingredient for ads.
Humor is his most successful advertising addition in an investment in ROI.

We created our 'Want Talent' ads that ran 2005 to 2010 with huge success.
As a result, our brand is big locally and well known nationwide.
We can do this for you. Call us today for Web and ad graphics.
In 1999, Steve Lehman founded PixSavers to increase efficiency in the professional photo restoration industry.
Seattle needed an honest, influential character, a software engineer, to make this business more professional.
As a software engineer, Steve utilized his technology experience in a combination between photos and software.
He taught photo restoration to new Photo Artists as this new title, "Photo Artist", was copied across our country.
Steve specialized in tintype photos because other photo restorer's thought antique photos began in the 1920's.
So Steve restored tintypes from 1836 to 1917, and other conventional photos of today, portraits and snapshots.
Other photo restorers as competitors, did not have a pricing standard, as they appeared precarious or uncertain.
Steve established a much lower pricing standard, as some restorers folded. Then he hired 4 more photo artists.
PixSavers' first ad campaign was a lightening strike. Restorers across the country felt the ground reverberating.
With persistence, PixSavers became well known to all restorers as PixSavers lead the entire industry, nationally.
In 1999, Steve began PixSavers, also known as Photo Savers, but later changed to its known name of PixSavers.
In 2005, PixSavers switched names with Photo Savers on its license. The company hired 4 more photo artists.
The company had not changed it format for restoring, archiving, graphics and photography in a digital photo lab.
In 2008 PixSavers acquired its membership with the Better Business Bureau, accredited as A+ in same year.
Early on, Steve was into radio electronics passing his FCC Class-E license exam for electronics engineering.
Later his career would begin with newspaper advertising, with a career going into much higher management.
Seeking management for higher salary he switched to construction sales, elevated to general management.
In another business, Steve formatted a service that matched CPA's to business. He made a profit and sold it.
Then, Steve took a position as Vice President of an advertising firm with his ability to create advertising graphics.
His prerequisites were knowledge of advertising, business, managed a large staff, and a good sense of humor.
In this job, Steve swapped his ad services with a client service to take his entire staff of 46 onto a dinner-cruise.
The staff was asked to have formal wear and cowboy boots for the party disguised as a 40+ high school prom.
He quit to go to the University for Computer Science, to add to his Electronics Engineering.
He has a 4 year degree in software engineering and earned a Microsoft MCSE certification.
Steve worked at Microsoft until 1999, as he had a desire for another independent business.
Once a businessman, always in a business, as this guy wanted to get back to his basics.
PixSavers was his incubated baby as photo restorers were absolutely needed in Seattle.
Steve had been a photographer since 1971 and he knew could teach others his practice.
Saving photos was on his mind since 1996. He opened PixSavers from a business plan.
