Thanks for the business advice I have been successfully running a completely analog pro lab for almost 8 years now, no easy feat in the current photographic climate. My first post was simply a question of a would any one pay $260 for the process with a minimum of five rolls...I NEVER SAID "I am launching this process and this is the cost" I was simply testing the waters to public reaction of the base cost of materials to do it.
This being said if something of enough historical significance presents itself then yes I would be happy to share my time and knowledge for histories sake if the person applying could cover the costs.
While it is my own fault, Im starting to get quite sick of the direction this has gone in. I regret ever expressing how much at absolute minimum this process would cost to do as of 2012.
