When I am out with my film camera I hear the question, “Where to you get your film developed?” all too often. I would like to put together a list of mail order labs. Most of the population does not have a local lab just up the street any more.

In the Digital age people do not want to wait for their photos. To cut down in the time film is in the mail a closer lab may be better. I have listed labs by location. If you live in Maine it may be faster to ship your film to Connecticut then to LA. But not always. Some labs today might only run E6 or True B&W one day a week. Sending to a further away lab that still does daily runs maybe faster if you shoot E6 films.

If you know any other labs in the USA or overseas just list them. Comments on any lab are welcome.

I know many of you have a local chain stores that do send out work or maybe even has a one hour lab still. One problem with that is the one hour lab may be good on Monday when an employee you cares is working but VERY poor on Tuesday the other guy is running it. Big companies are always trying to cut costs and they often change who and how their send out film is developed. So good in December and bad in January when they change service is not uncommon. Big chains don’t care about your film they just mostly care about the other items you buy when you are in the store. A quality film developing lab will at least care enough to try to keep service high.
