A proof print is a single contact sheet of the entire roll of film
cut into strips. The resultant images are the same size as the negatives
and are used as a guide to decide which negatives to print.
Proof prints are a guide only and variations in exposure may
occur due to such variations in the negatives. We print all our proof
sheets on Ilford Multigrade Pearl paper. Speak to us if you prefer gloss.
A clip test involves processing the first 30cm or so of the film to
determine the correct development time for the remainder of the film.
A clip test may result in the loss of between 2 and 6 frames of the film.
NB: Films will be cut into strips and supplied in archival A4 pages
after processing, scanning or printing. Speak to us if you prefer your films not
to be cut. However, we highly recommend cutting and sleeving film
to reduce curling and for archival protection of your negatives.
Prints are done at time of film processing, by hand on Ilford Multigrade paper by a trained professional, using experience and judgement, but please be aware these are not display quality prints and are suitable for general viewing and image evaluation.
Films are scanned in Greyscale, 1600dpi 8bit depth and saved as jpeg.
Films are scanned in 3200dpi, 8bit depth and saved as jpeg.
