I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "A picture is worth a thousand words."
As such, wouldn't you want to do anything in your power to preserve photos or to print them in the highest possible quality? If so, Borge Anderson can probably help.
As proprietor of Borge Anderson Photo Digital in Salt Lake City, Borge offers a wide array of photo services including film processing, digital machine prints, creating large mural prints, restoring photographs and photo/picture reproductions. Borge says the company does a fair amount of work printing large format posters, but restoring photographs has also been a much-requested service.
Making prints known as Giclée is an up-and-coming aspect of the business. Giclée is the French word for spray prints. The process is named such because the method, first developed in 1989, involves squirting microscopic dots of ink onto fine quality art paper or canvas. It is considered one of the most significant breakthroughs in digital imaging and has become very popular. Borge's shop has been offering this specialized type of print for about eight years.
Borge tells me opening a photo shop was not in his original career plans. He came to the United States from Denmark in 1948. He started working for the Tribune as a newspaper delivery boy, then as an office boy and it wasn't until later that he eventually became a photographer. By 1968 Borge was ready for a change, so he opened Borge Anderson Photo Digital.
Photo processing has changed quite a bit since then; instead of traditional film developing, Borge's shop is a custom digital lab. He says Borge Anderson Photo Digital is most known for its talented staff that has the ability to figure out customers' problems and salvage even the most damaged photo.
