Poster Restoration Certificate
Have you ever bought a "restored" movie poster?
Exactly what was done to it? Was paper replaced? Was it repainted? What
chemicals were used to remove stains, marks, etc.? How was it linenbacked?
years, we have advocated the need for some type of record reflecting
renovations done to a particular poster. This record could then be transferred
with the exchange of ownership of a poster.
a record of a poster's restoration can have many benefits. For example,
certain chemicals do not mix and can have an adverse affect on a poster.
This information is essential for subsequent repairs to a restored poster.
The type and amount of restoration can affect the value of a poster.
Poster buyers and sellers can use this information to more adequately
evaluate the poster. This information is also helpful for financial
records such as insurance.
have designed a three page certificate that we are making available
to collectors to use to record their poster restorations. Simply print
out the form and send it to the poster restorer with the poster.
