RQT Notice:

Due to the huge increase in rolls our waiting time has temporarily increased to 5-7 days. Most film will be processed faster than this, however we thank you for your patience and continued support.

Our Lab, Pricing & Submissions

Racquet Film has spent a year developing in-house for our professional photographers. As a world class lab with top-of-the-line equipment and stringent quality control, our primary focus is on providing the highest level of film processing services. We develop and scan 35mm, 120, 220, disposable cameras and old rolls of film you found in your aunt’s basement. We have C41 (colour), B&W and E-6 capabilities. Develop-only, scan only, develop and scan, low and high-resolution, pro packages, cross processing; you name it, we (probably) do it. See pricing below. If you can’t find something, get in contact with us or visit the FAQ section.

Pricing

All film is hand-processed, in-house with professional photographers watching every stage of its development.

We dry negatives in a temperature controlled environment, handle all negatives with care and sleeve them in the same manner.

Things to know.

A lot of questions pop up regarding film development. It’s why we added a FAQ page to our website. That should clear up most of your questions, but here’s a brief summary.

  • All scans are 16-bit, RGB, 300DPI.
  • Low-resolution scans are fine for web and social use. Their longest edge is generally 1500px and the size of the file varies between 4mb and 6mb.
  • High-resolution scans are good for printing up to A3 in size. Their longest edge is 3000px wide and the file size varies between 5mb and 10mb.
  • Pro scans are our recommendation. This is where our lab strives and what we are tailored for. The pro scans are not resized, include colour correction and additional post processing to make sure you get the perfect image. They are exported at the highest possible resolution. 
  • 95% of our film is processed and scanned within 3 working days of receiving your rolls. We state a five day waiting period to be safe. You will receive an invoice and upon payment of that invoice and completion of your rolls, you’ll receive a Dropbox link with your scans. This link will remain active for three months.
  • We use rotary and hand processing techniques with Kodak C41 chemicals and a variety of B&W options depending on client’s needs and expectations. 
  • Negatives are cut and sleeved for storage purposes. If you do not wish for your negatives to be cut, please specify on your submission form. 
  • We print gallery-quality A4, A3 and A2 images in house.
