Sending film is simple. Select the develop & scan services you need for each roll of film and add them to your cart. Complete the checkout, then package your film in a moisture-proof bag and mail it to us — USPS flat rate boxes work great. We will email you once your film is checked in at the lab.

Return Shipping for Negatives +
By default, we ship negatives back to you upon order completion. If you do not want the negatives, please check 'Dispose' on your order form.
Color / Tonality / Dust +
Color & Tonality. Our film scans are tailored to be a pure rendition of your exposures so that you can tweak and edit further if needed. We do not offer post-production services. However, we do manage density and color while scanning to ensure tonal accuracy.
Dust. While we do our best to keep our lab dust-free, note that dust can be present in scans on occasion (more common on B&W than color).
Pro Scans. With pro scans, we spend more time with color grading and density adjustments during the scanning process. We also work with you over time to learn your style of photography and adapt our scanning techniques to compliment your work.
Pushing/Pulling Film +
Please mark each individual roll when pushing or pulling. Note that C41 films can only be pushed up to 2 stops.
Rush Services +
Rush orders are a 50% upcharge. To place a rush order, look for the RUSH checkbox during checkout.
Packaging your Film +
We recommend placing film in an airtight plastic bag and then into a USPS flat rate box with proper padding. Please include your order receipt in the box. Shipping via USPS Priority, UPS and FedEx will allow you to track your package. Please DO NOT require a signature. Your package will be delivered directly to our hands or to our secure lockbox.
