All of our processes are non restoration, which means they don't change the paper itself. Our cleaning is a surface process that works best on dirt and some pencils. If the ink did not soak into the paper but is sitting on top it is possible it might be able to be removed, but we can't guarentee it. Generally any staining has affected the paper itself and can't be removed with non restorative methods.
