    I hope this is the correct forum for this question. I bought a Yashica a couple of weeks ago and it came a roll of Fuji Velvia and Agfa color slide film. I'm only set up to develop black and white and the closest lab that will develop 120 is over an hours drive from my house, so I thought I would try one of the mailers. Has any one used these, have any suggestions on which company to choose.

    I have been using Calyso. They do a really good job but their shipping price is pretty high. Processing cost is low though.

    I have also used color mark and have gotten good results

    I've never tried anyone east of the mississippi though.

    I use Vermont Color, prices are very reasonable and the turn around time is good. You can find them on line at www.vermontcolor.com

    Since vermontcolor is on the east coast I may give them a try. Any one used the A&I mailers from B&H Photo.
