How to See Your Film Scans Sooner.

As the busy season ramps up from May to December, our service times tend to increase.

Here are our top tips to ensure your order moves through the lab as quickly as possible:

Number Your Rolls.

When film is scanned chronologically, our expert color techs can see entire scenes at once, making your film quicker to scan and your scans more consistent!⁠

Order Online.

All process + scan orders must be ordered online. Online ordering is quick and simple and saves us time at write-up, which helps your film move quickly through the lab!

Use Overnight or 2-day Shipping.

The sooner your film arrives, the sooner we can get your scans back to you!⁠

Need a Rush?

During our busy season (roughly May–December), 2–5 day rush options will display at checkout. To request a rush from January–April, please email or call 503-588-3686.

Why Do Service Times Change?

Our service times depend solely on the amount of incoming film, and higher volumes of film mean extended service times. Rest assured, our legendary quality stays the same no matter what our turnaround time is. Just know our beautiful scans and top-notch prints require a bit more patience during busy season.⁠
