I just used The Darkroom for the first time and very impressed. Sent my film off on Monday and already have my scans viewable on the web tonight (Wednesday). Should have my CDs and prints on Friday. I used NCP prior to this and happy, but wanted to try a different lab. Might try Richard Photo next.
There actually is similar Sticky Thread under Product Availability titled, “Lab Services”

I think this is common for many hobby photographers.
First Photo in Rapid City, SD.
All sizes of film C-41 and B&W. We have an E6 processor, but it has been shut down due to lack of E6 orders. We do hand processing of B&W sheet film and enlargements up to 4x5 negs and up to 24x36 maximum in house.
Current minilab is Agfa MSC-200 and just added a new Agfa D-Lab2. Both are OPTICAL film printers.
In Austin, Texas
The previous reply reminded me of another Texas Lab (Dallas if I recall correctly)
I have never used them but they have taken out full page ads in photo magazines in recent years.
Maybe since they can pay for ads they are doing good work.
Old School Photo Lab / Photosmith
It is unfortunate that the criteria for this list expressly excludes labs in Canada ("If you know any other labs in the USA or overseas") :whistling:
But if it didn't exclude Canada:
ABC: http://www.abcphoto.com/index.jsp (website is not completely up-to-date)
The Lab: http://www.thelabvancouver.com/index.htm
CustomColor: http://www.customcolorprolab.com/ (location hasn't been fully updated on the website).
All are in Vancouver BC and, as I understand it, regularly receive a fair bit of work through the mail
Since APUG is based in New Zealand aren't both the USA and Canada overseas?
