Q: Does the scanning price include processing?
A: No. Each service is priced individually. We believe in fair pricing with consistent results. Processing film is one service, scanning is another and printing is yet another. We don’t charge for services that you don’t receive. Not all of our customers want their film scanned or printed. Some just want prints, others just want scans. If your film comes out of the processor blank or some other mishap, we can then just charge you for the cost of processing and give you a credit on the scanning. When you order prints, we don’t charge you until we get a final print count. We feel that a la carte pricing keep our prices fair.
