    When I was at Calypso, I asked if pictures of my kid count for the discount. After all, they aren't commercial. The guy at the desk smiled and said, "Make sure there is some landscape behind him in some of the pictures".

    I have gone in there with negatives of my kid to print. At the same time, they have had people picking up or dropping off major commercial orders. They never made me feel like I was taking too much of their time. Neither did the other customers. I really like them.

    If they were open Saturday, I would love them!

I am concerned because their price is so much better than others in the industry; I just found out that Chromacolor, who I had been using is no longer in business.

    Thanks in advance,
    Greetings,

    I own Calypso Imaging and the reason for our low prices are three fold:
    1. Our Refrema Olympic dip & dunk E-6 processor is paid for.
    2. As the film market shrinks we want to attract a steady volume of work all the way up until the time film vanishes.
    3. We specialize in the Nature, Fine Art, Landscape and Travel markets. These folks still shoot mostly film which ties into our drum scanning, Lightjet and giclée printing services.

    I will be glad to process & ship you a free roll or sheet of E-6 if you will send it to my attention.

    We continue to process C-41 and our lowest film pricing is now availible as 24hour E-6 to any and all clients.

    Regards,

    Ouch! "film vanishes" is not a phrase APUG wants to hear!

    Thanks for the post--as I noted before, I really like your company. Good quality, great people.

    I love your work Joe. Welcome to Apug. Stick around. Except for the recent sillyness this is a nice place to be.

    Hi Joe,

    I sent you an order of 120 sheets of Velvia last week to process, all based upon the responses on this thread. These are all people that I respect and they all say good things about Calypso. I'm looking forward to working with a company that won't disappear, like Chromacolor in San Diego did (where I used to send all my work). I live in Hawaii and there is no one here that processes large format E6 (not sure if I can even get 35mm E6 done here anymore).

    Thanks, and welcome to APUG!!

    I just wanted to follow up on this - I just received my first order back from Calypso and I want to thank everyone who responded. Their service was great, and the quality of their developing first-rate. I will be using them again, I just wish I had found them a long time ago.
