The Fine Print
We will discard any film not picked up within 30 days of order completion. Scanned files may be deleted after 90 days. We are glad to work with you to make arrangements for shipping if you are unable to pickup in a timely manner.
Submission of any material for processing, scanning, printing or handling of any kind constitutes an agreement by you that any damage to the material, or loss of same, due to any reason, including but not limited to our negligence, mechanical failure, fire, flood or theft will only entitle you to a like amount of unexposed film and processing. In the event that the film you drop off has not been exposed (due to user error, camera problem, etc) processing is non-refundable, but you will receive a store credit for scanning fees.
We cannot process E6 (reversal/positive/slide film such as Ektachrome, Velvia, Provia, etc). We can cross-process it in C41 chemistry for experimental results only, with no guarantee of any kind about the results.
