    Great experience with Jo and the team at Carterworks. We got an 8mm film reel digitised and restored and it came out excellently! Very happy with the quality of work and communication from Jo.

    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.
