The amount of care and attention to detail that goes into every One of a Kind commemorative collage, is a matter of pride to all of us. Take comfort in knowing that all of your original memorabilia is carefully scanned, retouched and restored, and reprinted on archival paper, preserving a lifetime of memories for another generation.
The steady, artistic hands of Mark Aruta have contributed to the beauty of our One of a Kind’s artwork for 15 years now! As the studio’s premier mat-cutter, Mark takes the archival prints and mounts them to acid-free, museum-quality mounting board. He then painstakingly bevel cuts each photo by hand to ensure perfection. The patience and care required to maintain such a high level of quality is impressive. The number of photographs that Mark has put his seal of approval on surely numbers in the tens of thousands.

Does Mark have a favorite piece? Maybe the breathtaking M. Nishimori Farms collage that Lawrence Romorini designed in 2009 to honor a Japanese-American immigrant, father, and grandfather who possessed a love of farming and a gift for growing. Then again, it seems like every project we’re working on becomes a favorite!
