This is great stuff! Thanks for sharing it and now I realize the meaning of the phrase “Necessity is the mother of invention.” :>) Try doing THIS with a pack of pixels.

Very cool article. Reminds me I had a question for you guys. Been wanting to send in some large format (4×5) film and wondered the best way to send it. I’m all out of plastic Easter eggs. 😉

Wow, I am boooring! I just send mine in the envelope you provide. I promise to be more creative from now on. You have great customers, and you are a great lab!

I could definitely keep you guys in little socks – it’s what I sell in my spare time.
As a matter of fact – I just happen to have a tiny spare odd sock sitting right here!

Question: Where does film go that has maximum exposure?
Answer: The latitude of Cannes, France is 43.552849, and the longitude is 7.017369.

Tell them the one about the guy who sent in a film canister full of sand and a seashell from the beach instead of his film….

I would never think of mailing my film in any of those ways. Cute, creative and absurd! A lipstick case, lol👄

I have 4 rolls of 120 film and you sent me a mailer. It looked like one of the FAQ packing photos showed one mailer taped to an envelope with multiple rolls inserted. Is this an approved mailing method to send to you? Thanks Scot

I have two, b/w negs single cut 2 and a quarter by 2 and a quarter neg’s,
about 72 years old. I would like to have two prints of each, 5×7, full negative prints
If possible, or 4×6 enlarged with subjects centered of course, would your lab be able to do this for me? I live in Palm Springs and would appreciate a reply. Janet A. Carter, 760-399-7459 or [email protected]. Thanks Janet
