"[Graphic Conservation’s] reputation is such that the State of Illinois has twice selected Graphic Conservation to work on their copy of ‘The Gettysburg Address.’ The company is sensitive to both the materials they work on and the clients who bring them in. I would categorically state that theirs is the top paper conservation firm in the country."
