FANTASTIC experience with with Jo! She 'cleaned up', enhanced etc an old 1916 postcard written by my great-uncle to his sis (my Grandma) from the battlefields of Gallipoli. So this was VERY special to me and an important piece of our family history. Jo did an amazing job, kept me fully informed along the way, came back to me many times to check & make sure I was happy. I am absolutely THRILLED with the completed work, which I now have framed. Thank you SO much Jo - highly recommended to all!

Carterworks has my highest recommendation. Jo scanned about 350 family slides from the 1960s and was extremely helpful in going through options, avoiding unnecessary costs, communicating fully and professionally, and doing an excellent and timely job with the images. Living outside Wellington was no barrier. I will definitely use her again for any other work I have of this nature.

Such a pleasure working with Jo Carter. She was responsive, timely and, above all else, extremely knowledgeable about the evolution of film to digital down to the print quality of paper used by NZ printers in the 80s and 90s. Her work was affordable, transparently priced and displayed a stunning wealth of experience. I will definitely be returning to her for my digitizing, restoration and photo ex-expertise needs! Don’t be amiss, go with Jo! (on behalf of Gibsbton Valley Winery)

The finished photographs we received back were just brilliant. In our dealings with Jo, she provided excellent advice from start to finish. It was such a pleasure to deal with a business that put their customers first.
