I'm looking for a good place in Chicago to drum scan and print a very special negative. Would prefer Lincolnwood/Rogers Park area if possible, but quality is more important than location. Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance
Peter

frotog - Thanks. They look like they know what they're doing. Digging around I also found Printlab on Homan Ave.

drum scan and print

This is APUG, I would not call that "printing." Maybe you mean "printer" as a mechanical object rather than a person?

Actually, it's this picture of my daughter posted by Laostyle17.

As much as I have come to dislike printing on canvas because it is being done to death, this one has a painterly quality to it that might look great done that way at say, 12x16 or 16x20. But I have a feeling that an analog print of this would just look fuzzy when enlarged that much.
