    List of Mail Order Labs

    I thought it would be a good idea (I'm sure this has been done here before) to list labs that accept orders through the mail. I think this will benifit many of us film lovers who have had the unfortunate problem of having our local labs closed or taken over by teenagers who only know how to process digital files (no offense to teenagers, I'm equally frustrated with lab people of all ages who mess up my rolls of film all the time). Hopefully we can come up with an updated list of labs that are still in business and that produce quality work.

    Also, if you would like to add any comments indicating your experiences with your lab, that would be great. It would also be great to know if these labs actually print from negative to paper or if they just print from a scanned negative.

    Make sure to specify if the lab is in the U.S., Canada, UK, or elsewhere.

    Gamma Black and White Photo Lab in San Francisco is the real thing. Not cheap. No color, just B&W, beautifully done with good judgment, to your instructions, to your satisfaction. Talk to Peter.

    I've used Praus Productions http://www.4photolab.com/ for traditional color prints and have gotten great results. They are in Rochester, NY. I found out about them back when they were an APUG sponsor, but they no longer appear to be one.

    I used them once for some B&W work... I was wondering whether they were still a going concern or not. Too bad they are no longer sponsors.

    Camera World in Charlotte, NC does a really good job of processing the b&w rolls. We use them when we are rushed. I believe they are at: www.cameraworldnc.com

    I assume you can mail them your film. They are just down the street from us.

    I've moved this to product availability and it may be a good idea to make it sticky if the list becomes comprehensive.

    Some time has passed since I last used them, and I've accrued a bunch of negatives I'd like printed, so I gave them a call. It sounds like business as usual and I will probably send them a package this week or next.
    Yeah, it would be nice if they still sponsored APUG...
