Be sure to take care in sending in your film. Best is a small box to protect the film. X-ray has not been a concern  in shipping, but it cant hurt to write "UN-PROCESSED-FILM" on your packages if you have apprehension.

NOTE ON PRODUCTION: dr5 is a highly specialized photo-process. We give absolute attention to excellence. On some occasions you might experience delays in service. There are reasons this might occur. Our leading amount of delay is Quality control & volume. WE WILL NOT sacrifice getting orders out if Quality is compromised. Please be patient if this occurs. Rush & deadline service is available.

OUR PROCESSING / SERVICES POLICY AND QUALITY GUARANTEE:The dr5 process is a highly customized process. Quality control is very tenuous and precise. We will not put our clients film in hams way, for any reason. We make every effort to meet deadlines, and we will bend over backwards to provide a required delivery. If by some circumstance our controls are off, QUALITY will reside over DELIVERY. Volume will also cause delays. Quality we feel sets us apart from any other lab. We will not run your film unless EVERYTHING in the production process is perfect. The same rules apply for our other services.
