    I'm just about to take some large format photographs next week, and I do my own developing, but a large format enlarger isn't really an option for me.

    Are there any printing services in Europe/Northern Europe that offer printing services for 9X12 BW-film?

    9x12 is a little small to contact, but some people love more "intimate" small contact prints. you can just use a lamp for that, no enlarger needed at all

    These guys can do Imacon scans and then prints of 4x5, so I guess they can do 9x12:

    I have used them, and was very happy.

    Cheers

    It should be easy enough to avoid digi stuff. Almost any serious lab will print 4x5" and most will use glass carriers. The slightly smaller negs should be no problem surely? There are at least a couple of film labs in Paris, but everywhere should have a few (I do my own so don't have a list). If you get stuck you could e-mail Fotoimpex to ask about their "Labo" services.

    No problem printing from 9x12 as long as that's cms!

    Sadly I got rid of my 11x14 inch enlarger many years ago. Details here; http://www.lighthousedarkroom.com/

    All the best
