Why Use Praus?
There are several reasons why working with us just plain works!
Attention – You work directly with the person printing your job. And our least experienced printer still has over ten years of experience!
Consistency – Our volume is such that our processing is stable and consistent every day. Subtle variations are noted and corrected before they turn into significant changes. Smaller labs that have to mix and temper chemistry on a sporadic basis can't achieve our level of consistency.
Convenience – One-stop shopping for film processing and printing. If you like, we can send you contact sheets so you can call in your print order to save time.
Custom Service – We’ll do pushes or pulls on your processing and sleeve your film exactly the way you want it. Black-and-white film can be processed in the chemistry of your choice, using either hand or rotary drum agitation. Our printers stock a variety of RC and fiber papers and toners, and our color printers can make contrast masks and use specialized techniques to achieve the “look” you want. We’re happy to send out test prints and contact sheets for evaluation, and we’ll experiment and test until you’re satisfied.
Finally, we have competitive prices and superior quality and service, especially compared to big-city labs. We have customers from NYC, Chicago, and LA shipping their film to us, so we must be doing something right. Need more assurance? Read our testimonials.
