    Calypso Imaging, in Santa Clara, CA, does 220 slides for $8.10 per roll. I did an order of 100 4x5 transparencies last month with them, I received my processed slides in about a week, which means their processing time was about 2 days from the time they received the order until the day they put them into the return mail. 35mm slides take a bit more time. The returned slides were extremely clean (I scanned them) and well packaged. I recommend them highly. Their address is: http://www.calypsoinc.com/

    No, you just have to package your exposed film and mail it to them. They have a downloadable pdf order form that you need to include, with either payment or credit card information. I should mention, I don't think that they are really geared for doing individual rolls of film. They have free return FedEx shipping on orders over $80. I can't recommend anyone for doing individual rolls, sorry.

    I used Slideprinter for years and never had any processing problems. They are top notch and specialized in E-6 only, dip and dunk. What's nice about Slideprinter is that you can send one roll or 100 rolls of any size film up 4x5 and they have it done in a couple days.

    I stopped using them a couple of years ago because they don't process 8x10 sheets, and I found a great local E-6 lab.

    Highly recommended!!
