Rob Kipp is a passionate and dedicated print restorer. It comes through when you meet him and definitely when he has completed the work. We brought an old, water stained, wrinkled, tired print to Rob and he patiently brought it back to life.
I would recommend his services to anyone who is serious about preserving history. It was well worth the time and money."
Best Regards, G.J. - MA 2016

The Glorious First of June print arrived on schedule. You were correct, I am very pleased with the results of your restoration. What a difference over its condition when I purchased it last August.
Ireceived the Audubon print that you restored for me, and am thrilled by the results. Your work is outstanding! I will send any future prints that need work to you, and will recommend you to anyone that needed similar restoration.
Thank you for such superb work on my print. Sincerely, AR CA 2014

Thank you, Rob. They look great! LW MA 2014
Excellent work, Rob. Much of it is amazing! I expect to have more after things settle down later in the fall or this winter. I'm especially amazed at how you were able to remove toning virtually completely on some of the Hiroshige prints.
Best. TS NJ 2014

Hi Rob, The prints just arrived and they look fantastic. I don’t know how you do it but they have been transformed, especially the Squid Fishermen and the Cesco’s Inn which were really brown and grimy. I can’t thank you enough. Hope the check reaches you today. I will let you know about the exhibition as it nears. Thanks for making a contribution to it. I know that the etchings will look fabulous on display. Best wishes, A. McG. MA
Hello Rob, just had a chance to look at your work. Your workmanship is unbelievable. I can't even find the sections in which the holes have been repaired. I'm a very happy customer and can't wait to see how my Daniel Webster print comes out. Thanks again, J.M. MA
Hi Rob, I just picked up my Smith and Ben Shawn etchings. What a difference. I know with mounting and stainging they were not easy pieces to do. Thank you, I am very pleased. B.C. MA

Hello Rob, I got the print last night. It looks spectacular! What a terrific job you did! I was always fascinated by the process of paper restoration
or any restoration for that matter. I just love paper. All the best. O.P. MA
Hello Rob, Received the Curriers this evening. I am pleased, Thanks. A.L., NC
Hello Rob, They arrived today, thank you for a great job. Now to the framer for an archival job there. I will make the frames. Sincerely, S.F., NJ
Dear Rob, The print arrived in perfect shape and you've done a fantastic job in reviving General Putnam to his bold course and purpose. I suppose the highest compliment to a restoration (from a lay person) is that it appears as its original self, not a bit over done, just where it wants to be. Thanks. Sincerely, Bill W., MA
Dear Mr. Kipp,
Thanks Rob, Very, Very nice job. Mark L. NJ
Hello Rob, My print arrived today and looks simply beautiful. I am so happy that the staining and mat burn were conserved and restored. Off to my framer to have your work properly matted and framed. Thank you for doing such nice work. Marian G. Salem, MA
The coloring of the bill of the middle bird is perfect (Elephant folio
Havell Ed. J.J. Audubon 1837) - just
what I was hoping to achieve!
Thanks for your hard work on this and for getting it done so promptly! Dave B. - LosAngeles, CA

Hi Rob - I just recieved my Architectual print in the mail. It looks so much better than it did before. I'm very pleased with your work! Thanks for doing such a good job.
Val C. - Somers, NY
Rob - I thank you for delivering the final print to my customer. He said that he is completely pleased and I thank you for doing such a wonderful job on both the Conservation
and restorations plus the matting and framing. Sid A. - Silver Spring, MD
Thank you for your excellent work. I am very happy to have my poor "Old Kentucky Home" safe and sound, and back in one piece. It must have been difficult. That leaves the C&I "View From Peekskill", and the Cozzens watercolor. Should I be looking for them, or did they miss the cut-off. Either way is fine. I should have a shipment of at least five mailed by Friday. Take good care of yourself and stay well. Thanks very much.
The Boydell Lear engraving arrived safely yesterday, and I couldn't be more pleased! When I sent the print, I was hoping you could help a bit with the damage,
but I had no idea how successful you could be. It looks wonderful, and the line engraving even looks sharper without all that age-toning and whatever else was going on. Thank you for the splendid work. You say you hope I enjoy the engraving for years to come, and I guarantee I shall. It will surely be a family heirloom, and, as I said, I'm astonished that you can reverse those water stains and years of wear and am most grateful to have had your services. I love this piece, and it's taken me years to find one (one that I could afford, anyway). Buying a piece in need of some care and hiring you turned out to be the perfect combination!
Best to you, --Bob McDonald
It just arrived and I am delighted with the result. Thank you. I have a few other pieces I would like to send along, and will do so when I liberate them from their old matting etc. Hope that’s okay. Paul J. Novato, CA Artwork: Original Levon West etching
I received the print yesterday and I am very pleased, it came out as I hoped it would. It looks terrific, you did a great job preserving the original color which is so important. You also did a great job on the framing, it looks very nice. I also appreciate the extra effort you put in on the packing for shipment. Your check is in the mail today. Thank again.

Hi Jenny, I left a phone message for you the day that we received the Cassatt and said that it is perfect. Thank you so much! Warm regards,
Laurie Swenson Laguna Beach, CA Artwork: Original Mary Cassatt print (drypoint, soft ground, and aquatint on paper)
The print arrived safely (amazing packing job) last week. It looks great, what a difference. Thank you for doing such a good job with it.

“Jenny, The piece is safely here
and looks wonderful. You do great work. I'm sure we will have more pieces
in the future and hopefully not the tight timeframe. Thanks for
on top of the shipping issue.”
“Hello Jenny, I received
the shipment with the restored Gould’s yesterday. I am very pleased
with the way they came out and I wish to thank you for doing such a great
Please forward your phone number as I have two people interested in
contacting you regarding restoration work. Thanks. Happy Holidays”

They look wonderful!! I am so pleased, you truly didn't change the
age at all..just cleaned. Thank you..you will get others.
“The Bison arrived yesterday.
It looks great, the tear is hardly noticeable! Thanks for your work!”
“Hi Jenny, Just to
let you know we are quite pleased with the work you did on the Highland
Spring lithograph - wish we could look that good at 125!”
“ I received the cleaned
and restored "Dun otter Castle" print today and I was amazed at the transformation.
I have to tell you that I am very pleased with the results.
have guessed that anyone could do much for a print in such a sorry state,
but you certainly rose to the occasion! Thanks again for you fine
work. I will certainly recommend your restoration services to others.”
“ Hello Jenny, The restored
prints arrived this afternoon and I am pleased more than I thought possible.
Your work is excellent. I have never had prints restored before and
you the most difficult ones feeling if they didn't work out there was little
loss. These are beautiful with no color loss! I have about 20-30 more prints
that are not quite as bad that I would like to get restored and I hope
you might be willing to do them. I wouldn't be able to send them all at
once and but could send 5-8 at a time if you are interested. Please let
me know. Regardless, I want to thank you Very Much for the work you did.”
“ I received the prints Monday
evening 10/23/00, and I was very pleased with the work you did to restore
these prints. I will definitely use you again and I will recommend
work to others in this area that requires this type of service. The
prints turned out much better than I expected. Thank you again, it was
“Jenny--the prints arrived today.
You did a terrific job -- they look almost unrecognizable! Thank
“Hello, Jenny: I am thrilled with the outcome. I sent you a thank you note a couple of days ago, it should reach you directly. You'll read this again, but even knowing how
good your work is, I was still amazed at the quality of "Old Hours."
It's at the framers as we speak. Have a great day.:”
“ The print looks great!!!
I received it a while ago but have not had a chance to communicate to you
because of work. Sorry for the delay!! Please do not hesitate to
as a reference in the future, should you need one. Thanks
