Fire insurance is a good thing, right? For us Film Assurance is also very important. We want to be able to assure our customers that we will be processing color and b&w negative film for many years to come, and Friday we were able to insure our assurance when we took delivery of a second Richcolor C41 film processor and dryer.
Several times over the last couple of years our 25-year-old Richcolor processor has had some issues, many happening because of power fluctuations, but most often from parts just wearing out. Richcolors haven’t been made for decades, so I have cannibalized parts from other Richcolor processors we picked up in years past, but last December, Harmon’s Photo in Gainesville shut down their film lines, and suddenly we were left with no regional back-up. I started looking for an additional processor and found one for free in Dallas, TX — all we had to do was pay for freight. It took two or three months to coordinate the move, but it has finally arrived, and it looks to be really nice.
If our volume continues to increase, we will try to figure out a way to run this additional processor next to our existing Richcolor. So bring it on — dig out those old rolls that have been sitting in the kitchen drawer for years, or dust off the old film camera, find a couple of rolls, and relive the excitement of shooting film. One of our customers said she always enjoyed being surprised by what the film gods did with her film. If you want to find out more about our processing, follow this link. Film Processing Services
