Friday 12 February 2021
We'll be out of action Saturday 13 February - Wednesday 17 February as Melbourne heads back into five days of Stage 4 lockdown. We'll still be accepting orders through our Black Street dropbox if you live locally, and via post for everywhere else. Any rush jobs will be completed (all going well) on Thursday 18 February; all external dropboxes will (hopefully) also be collected on Thursday 18 February. We're still working through all prior orders and our usual turnaround times have been pushed to around 7-10 working days — we thank you all for your patience during this time.
Tuesday 10 November 2020
We have turned our processor and scanners back on and our roller door is open for the first time since March this year.
We would like to thank everyone for your support, kindness and patience during this time. To those who have dropped film during the lockdown, thank you for giving us a running start.
Our shopfront is currently open for dropoffs, pickups and film purchases from Monday to Thursday, 12pm-3pm. You can also drop film 24/7 via the dropbox at the lab, or send your order via post.
Please be patient as we work through the backlog dropped in over the past three months. We are contactable by phone and email Monday to Friday, 9am-3pm via phone (03) 9023 3689 or email email@example.com.
Thank you for supporting local small businesses.
Welcome back Melbourne, see you soon.
