We have been trading since 2011 and our processing and scanning services have become very versatile in that short time. We pride ourselves on being the cheapest online lab in the world with very high standards. Our goal is to keep film alive in the 21st century by appealing to all types of people interested in using film, from the home movie-maker to the contemporary artist or professional cinematographer. Gauge Film aims to make film easy to access, easy to understand and affordable. By using this site you are supporting 8mm and 16mm film and enabling us to expand our services.
How to use our Services
Using our services is super easy. Read all the pages under the info tab to familiarize yourself with our operation in detail. After you've done that you can simply navigate your way through the 8mm and 16mm tabs to purchase film, processing and scanning individually or as bundles. There are drop down menus underneath each tab to help you navigate to what you need swiftly. If you have any trouble just drop us an email and we can lend a hand. After you've found the product you require add it to the basket and checkout. After payment has cleared you'll receive an order confirmation via email. Simply pop this order confirmation in an envelope with your film and post it to Gauge Film. If you don't have a printer just jot your name, address and order number down on a bit of paper and send that instead. We'll process your order and return it after the work is complete.
We set a deadline every three weeks on a Tuesday at 1pm for processing and scanning. Make sure your film arrives before the deadline timer reaches zero. If you are posting film the day before please make sure you send it via Special Delivery by 1pm. If you miss the deadline your film will fall in the next batch and you will have quite a wait on your hands. All film will be developed and scanned within three weeks and will be dispatched before the following deadline hits. Please don't chase your film if it falls within our schedule. We are only a small team so unnecessary correspondence can slow us down.
