Testimonials

As much as we enjoy the results we achieve when we restore a vintage poster, it is our clients that make it all worth while. Here’s just a few of the many kind comments and testimonials we have received…(In some cases we have provided links to the poster restoration for you to view.)


Tony S. Sydney, Australia

A number of times I have sent posters in terrible condition – paper crumbling, large pieces missing, even text missing. Dario does an amazing job bringing these posters back to life with superb accuracy.

SS Photo Exhibition (c1937) – German


Duane Perreault. Connecticut, U.S.A.

Many a Peter Lorre poster has Dario worked his magic on for me, I look forward to working with him any chance I get. A true artist and a pleasure to deal with!

L’Enigmatique Mr. Moto (1961) – Belgian


Ron Salvatore. New Windsor, USA

Dario has done several projects for me, and I’ve been more than pleased with every one. Not only is he an ace paper restorer, he’s a cool guy as well. Highly recommended!

La Bride sur le cou (1961) – French Banner


David Rew. Sydney, Australia

She’s beautiful, thank-you so much. I can’t wait to frame it and put in pride of place in my office

Lolita (1962) – Australian Daybill


Wim. Amsterdam

I love the personal attention Dario brings to restoration. He does not over restore and loves the stamps and snipes as much as I do.

The Blue Dahlia (1946) – Half Sheet


Matt Kerr. Melbourne, Australia

Dario’s attention to detail is exceptional. All the boxes were ticked, price, turnaround, quality and service.

Gilda (1946) – Australian Daybill


Richard Del Belso. Los Angeles, USA

For knowledgeable, expert and reliable backing or restoration services, this is the place. Dario provides excellent work, wonderful communication, and a top-notch customer service.

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946): US One Sheet


Frolian Regal. Los Angeles, USA

Dario is not the cheapest nor the most expensive, but he is one of the best. His attention to detail, quality  work in restoring and backing with a fast turn around time is one of the best in the business.

Underwater (1955) – US One Sheet


Erich Linder. Houston, Texas, USA

Not only is he a master of restoration technically and artistically, but he is a professional in terms of the way he does business. I never have anxiety in sending him work, as he always delivers in full and on time.

Les Quatre Cents Coups (1959): Japanese B2


Mark S. London, UK

Dario explains and discusses options in a friendly and clear manner and most importantly follows through with professional care and attention. An added bonus is the fast turnaround.

Il Ladro (1957): Italian 1P


Lars Erik Holmquist. San Francisco, USA

I have had many posters restored. I was particularly impressed by his work on my vintage Mexican posters, which have extremely brittle paper and require a very careful hand – they all came back looking amazing!

Las Vampiras (1969): Mexican


Bob Brooks. Vancouver, Canada

The only linen-backer I trust…



Simon Dwyer. UK

My customers sometimes ask why I send my posters half way round the world for restoration. After all, there are lots of very competent linen backers in the UK and the USA. The reason is simple. I want the best.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966): British Quad


Jack Whittles. Canada

I can’t hardly even see the fold lines – and the “bleed” is just minimal, but visible if you look – so that is perfect in terms of “proofing” the poster.

Dr No (1962) – US One Sheet



Craig Goebel. Vancouver, Canada

Has done several hundred restorations, many of which have been of rare and much-damaged posters. A master craftsman…professional in all respects

Captains of the Clouds (1942): US One Sheet
