All About PixSavers
No other photo restoration service offers so much, for so little, making it so easy, to get your photos restored.
At PixSavers, worry is never in style and pricing is always better, for our quality custom restored photographs.
We are a 14 year photo restoration service, whose Photo Artists have a meticulous, keen eye, on each detail.
It's easier to be a taker than a giver and at PixSavers we help as much as we can.
To stand out among the rest, our regular freebies really has made a mark on us.
As we did that, we stood out as we caught everyone's attention becoming most popular.
In the beginning we offered our services to Seniors, reviewing us more than any others.
We received our greatest return on our timely investment, reaching our goals sooner.
As a result, we have surpassed our goals while giving back their past memories.
We restore photographs from 1839 to 1993, specializing in Tintype Photos 1839 to 1917.
Other services are: Photography, Graphic Design and Photo Album Archiving onto CD.
We are Photo Artists-Technicians with expert knowledge of photos from 1971, forward.
As a Microsoft Engineer (MCSE), owner, Steve Lehman, traditionally hires only the best Photo Artists for PixSavers.
Training new Photo Artists is not easy, as most came from our competitors which only spot-clean a photograph.
Primarily, Steve opened his company because other photo restorers were not completely restoring photographs.
PixSavers has become the most reliably trusted restorer, which restores a photo top to bottom.
Whether we utilize manual or digital restorations, digital tools are the same as manual tools.
We cut in close on the screen fixing tiny elements which can print if we don't catch them.
The PixSavers! Rainbow
Our rainbow logo flows to illustrate an art process in layers, flowing outward to the letter, P.
A photographic restoration process has the same layering action, as this photos (right) layers.
PixSavers is committed to photo excellence, ultimately serving customers with photo care.
Since its inception in 1999, PixSavers established itself as the photographic restorer which
more clients looked toward for expertise, awareness, and complete answers about photos.
Since its creation, PixSavers has influenced the largest of art colleges around America’s country,
as it becomes the photo company to watch in the coming years as it grows from its present footprint,
to a continued growth in popularity, business, photo art education, inventing new methods in restoring
photographs, while maintaining past methods in the way which photographs were printed, whether they
are printed in off-set, dynamically, with new design, from a postage stamp size to a 60” banner-photo,
we will continue to bring new life to photographs, no matter how damaged we are the best restorer.
Real Talent Behind Digital Photo Tools
Adobe advertises its Photoshop as a "one-touch magic" but that's NOT quite correct.
The "magic" is really in the talent which looks easy, but we really restore photos manually.
Sometimes consuming, sometimes fast, its digital tools are the same as manual tools.
Experienced, our Photo Artists still receive technical training from our Software Engineer.
This way, all of us are trained to do the same things, to think fast, outside of the box.
At the end of a photo task, we marvel at our masterpiece like celebrating a Van Gogh.
Our entire team may scrutinize each other’s work to improve a refinish if needed.
Technology plays an important role in restoration but ours has the finest artistry.
About the Owner, Founder
In his early years, Steve Lehman was always an artist, from charcoal to painting to photography and photo effects.
Through the years, he had hobbies in art which probably led to this business. He had a hobby in electronics also.
By 18, he had his FCC Class-E radio license completely for Electronic Engineering, endorsed for Ham operations.
It was only a matter of time when he would finally come back to his hobbies to create a business like PixSavers.
His job career started at the Seattle Times newspaper, in marketing and then photography later,
as he first began in Circulation, and later was transferred to Photography. At the newspaper he was
promoted into upper management, 3 levels upward within 5 years, as he kept proving his worth.
In 1973 he quit the newspaper to become a General Contractor, opening his business in Seattle
to sell home improvements and hired residential teams to install insulated windows and roofing.
Finally in 1984, he sold his business to begin an advertising sales career, again proving his worth,
where he earned 3 top marketing awards by 1994. That wasn't a surprise considering his past.
In 1993, he began at the University of Washington, Seattle, earning a degree plus 8 certifications
in engineering plus his top certification, his Microsoft Certified Software Engineering, (MCSE).
At Microsoft Corporation, he was a test engineer for photo editing software, then developed his own photo software.
But - while there, inside his cubical, he began with Photo Restoration and Photography for employees, as he worked
with software engineering and photo restoration both. Destined to take his business home in 1999, took time off of
Microsoft for a major surgery and after his long recovery, he decided to begin PixSavers, to be independent again.
Now as a marketing/advertising expert, he combined his electronics, software, artistry background to start PixSavers.
With a full-on, marketing promotion campaign with advertising and with his huge push, he overwhelmed competitors
so much that 2 of them quit during his first year. Now Steve has developed into one of the best known and respected
photo and graphics design artist. And now, coincidentally, there is another PixSavers in Dublin, Ireland.
