What We Do

BFL is a full-service film lab dedicated to the preservation of analog photography. We can process any film from 35mm up to 4x5, even rare formats such as 126, 130, 110 and Disc film. We can also scan and preserve your old shoebox full of slides. Chances are, if it's on film we can do it.  Our core business is processing and scanning film.  We also offer photo prints from 4x6 up to 24x36.
