As most of you will know, we introduced the current 4 week deadline system around 1 year ago in the hope that it would make turnaround times less unpredictable. To that end it has definitely been successful. However since we've incorporated the 4 week model we haven't hit maximum quantity once (on reversal or negative). As you can imagine that is very wasteful and thus costly when it comes to chemicals. So from now on we'll be pushing the developing deadline to every 5 weeks to try and combat the waste.
The good news is we've been doing plenty of scanning! From now on we'll be scanning all month round (apart from developing week obviously). Basically what that means is the deadline no longer applies to scanning. Just send your film is whenever you like and we'll scan them as soon as humanly possible!
