    As of Dec. 31, 2012, the E-Six Lab in Ga. has closed for business. :sad: Any suggestion where to get E-6 sheet film developed, or is it time to start doing my own?

    I looked at the web page for the darkroom, but didn't see where they were doing sheet film such as 8x10.

    Linhoff in Minneapolis do a fine job. They are also contemplating shutting down their film processing, so would be a good one to support.

    In NYC there are still a number of labs

    You could call

    Printspace,

    Duggal,

    or Modernage

    and see if they handle what you want.
    All of which you can find online.
    Regards,
    Michael

    Correct, they don't. Had I known you were looking specifically for LF E-6 I would have held my tongue. My mistake... I failed to see the word "sheet" in your OP. Mea culpa.

    I can develop E6 films, but I live in Latvia. I develop E6 on Jobo CPP2 processor. I use Fujihunt 3E6 chemicals. If anyone have interest I publish the price of developing.

    DataChrome is an excellent place for processing. They do beautiful work.

    I've heard good things about Dodge Chrome, too. There's also SAMY's in Santa Barbara.

    North Coast Photographic is what you want.

    They just invested thousands into their E6 line.

    I believe that Praus in Rochester, NY does E6 in any size. I've had awesome results from them.
