We image your files at 8K (8192 pixels across 5", or 1638 pixels per inch)on 4x5 Ektachrome EPN film, using extremely sharp Lasergraphics film recorders.
Our software will automatically enlarge your file to a maximum of 4 x 5 inches. If your image is not in a 4:5 ratio, it will be enlarged as much as possible, and there will be black along two edges. The cost per transparency is $40, with a minimum order of one transparency. Turn-around time is two days in-house. For one-day turn-around, the cost is $60.00 per transparency, and for same-day service, the cost is $80 per transparency. Large orders may qualify for a reduced rate. All orders also have a $4.50 handling charge in addition to the cost of imaging. Transparencies will be returned sleeved. We produce transparencies from digital camera files as well as presentation software. High-quality JPEG files are good, as are TIFF and RGB Photoshop files.
Production of these items has ended. This page is for information only. Photographic Specialties is no longer producing slides and transparencies. I have been self-employed for 35 years, but looking forward to retirement since my wife died five years ago. With the decline of conventional photography and the recent recession, the availability of film and chemicals as well as the volume of work has declined to such an extent that it is no longer possible to have fresh chemicals to develop film. I hope that if you still need conventional slides and transparencies, you will be able to find someone who can produce them for you. Thank you for your orders over the years.
