frequently asked questions
What kind of equipment do you use?

We use Noritsu professional minilab equipment that has been carefully refurbished; a QSF-T15 developer for C-41 35mm development and an SA-1700 scanner for all our scanning. We also use a Phototherm Super-Sidekick for black and white 35mm and all 120 film.

What is your turnaround time?

We are an ASAP film lab; we're going to process your order as fast as we can! In most situations that means 1-2 hours for color 35mm, and 1 business day for black and white, and 120mm. Mondays and Tuesdays are our busiest days, so expect 2-4 hours for color 35mm, and 1-2 business days for everything else.

How do I get you my rolls?

We've got a rad, secure little contactless dropbox outside our house. Check out ourdrop off film page to learn more about how-to, where-to, why-to, etc.

What if I can't make it to your dropbox?

You can mail us your film - check out this page for instructions!

What about paying and stuff?

That's the easy part. As soon as your rolls are ready, you'll receive an invoice via email, which you can pay via card or PayPal.

Okay, then how do I get my scans?

Easy! The moment your invoice is paid (literally, this website may be from the 90s but our automation is from 2023), you'll trigger an email with a link to download your scans in a zip file.

What about getting back my negatives?

This only takes the tiniest bit of planning on your part. When you're ready to get back your negatives, hit this link to schedule a time to pick up, and they'll be in the dropbox waiting for you.

How are y'all so affordable?

We are on a mission to make film photography as accessible and as affordable as possible. To keep costs low (without losing quality) we run the business out of our house, and it's just the two of us! We still shoot weddings and develop all our wedding film ourselves; quality and accuracy are extremely important to us.
