Where can I go for quality Cibachome printing? Is there a lab that is well known for this anymore?
Pretty Much...Good Luck! I have not seen a quality Ciba Lab in about 5 years now..
Try The Lightroom in CA... www.lightroom.com
I used this company to do some larger prints (30"x40") that I had previously had done on Ilfochrome (Ilfochrome only comes in sheet sizes now)... The customer service and such was fine, but the new LightJet process onto the Fuji Archival Super-Gloss paper is not even close in terms of resolution to the older Ilfochrome prints I still had on hand... Color was an okay match...
from their web pages:
The LightRoom is one of the oldest Ilfochrome labs in the country, having printed this photographic process exclusively since 1975. Since 1995, our web site has been providing information on this process to thousands of photographers around the world.
You can also try to two following labs in Los Angeles:
Weldon Color Lab : http://www.weldoncolorlab.com/
and / or
The Lab : http://lab-ciba.com/
both do the very finest work in my opinion.
Best of luck
There is a lab in my hometown (Perth, West Australia) that still do Cibachrome: Churchills Colorlab at www.churchillcolorlabs.com.au/
and Laumont Color Labs, (no website) both in NYC
there is always Apuger Bob Carnies' lab http://elevatordigital.ca/ I have seen the work produced there and it is excellent.
Where are you from? Jim Brick, the moderator of the pure-silver lists, does cibas. He does them from his studio as well as does them for Keeble and Schchat in Palo Alto.
BPD Photech . I have not tried them yet, but they have a good reputation.
I live in Seattle... for now.
I use a company located in Flagstaff, Arizona.
Hidden Light LLC.
There are two guys that own and operate the company. One prints color and the other black and white. These guys are awesome. I have been in the business of photography for awhile and I have never found a more custom lab. If you are serious about the final print, you need to contact these guys.
I have been using them for two years and have been very happy.
Try Photographic Traditions of Maine:
The Lighthouse Lab and Sandy Prints commercially print Ilfochromes up to 50inch x 4meters using traditional techniques. In coming months it will also be offered as a digital output service.

Long Live Ilfochrome!
I looked long and hard to find a lab that is remotly economical compaired to the rest and I came up with Visual Imaging. http://www.visual-imaging.com/ They have done great work for me but they have a turn around of about a month. I don't mind the wait.
