Thanks for the link to the article. I've been hearing about the closure through the grapevine--a handful of Ivey regulars have been calling the lab I work for looking for a new place to send film. I hate to hear of lab closings. The article mentions that the film side of things is still profitable, which is the case for most labs that do any decent quantity. Seems like a short sighted thing to just dump it, after all, profit is profit! Hopefully someone will realize that Seattle IS large enough to maintain a pro-lab. The really irksome part of it all is the start up cost for a dwindling business...but Ivey HAD the equipment, trained employees, etc.
