Each photographic print is hand printed from a negative. This timeless image would make a great gift or decoration for Home/Office. The Perfect Picture, Inc s photographs are printed using Shinko printers and lab technology. This type of developing is quickly becoming the standard with professional photo lab technicians. We produce an exhibition quality print that has truly neutral tones and great depth in clarity that is far better than traditional black and white lab prints. We are dealing with historical photographs from a wide range of regions, creators and time periods. There is variation in the quality. We always ask ourselves if we would be pleased with a particular image before we add it to our inventory. We do not stock low quality snapshots, cheap digital scans or multigenerational prints. Most of our images are available for use, as most of them are in public domain. We can license some of our images for commercial use.
