Prices quoted for mounting are for A and B grades only and do not include services for removing folds, stains, water marks, bleaching or other restoration services. A and B grade posters submitted for mounting only will be returned in "as is" condition.

Restoration and conservation of posters depends very much on the condition in which hey are received. The more work and time needed to retore a piece, the greater your investment. A generally-accepted grading system exists, although the system is applied with some subjectivity. We have tried to describe condition as used in general trade practice. You should be adble to determine how your poster grades by following the guide in the right-hand column.
