Now Selling (and processing) Color Film!

We’ve been carrying and processing traditional black and white film since the beginning, and we still offer Fuji Acros 100 as well as Kodak Tri-X 400 in 35mm and 120 sizes.

To compliment our black and white offerings, we are now carrying a variety of color negative film as well!

You may have heard recently that some color labs are no longer returning negatives on color processing. If you take your film to your old standby color lab / drugstore, chances are you won’t be getting your negatives back.

We can fix that.

If you bring us your color film, E-6, C41, we can have it processed and scanned for you in about 10 days. We promise, you’ll get your negatives back.

Give us a call: 928-527-1847 and we will get you squared away.

Gallery Hanging Systems

Main-Wall-e1345153411809

At some point, if you get even mildly serious about your art “collection,” you will probably end up with holes in your walls. Lots and lots of holes.

Sure, you can patch, paint, and generally repair the wall as you go along. Or you can leave it as your homage to swiss cheese.

We prefer a third option.

Install your very own gallery hanging system. In your house. It’s simple, clean, incredibly versatile, and it won’t put a million holes in your walls. Plus, it’s rated to 150 pounds, so you can hang ALL the art from one system, or spread them out throughout your home.

You can get started on a single rail system for less than you might think, and once you’ve made the initial investment, adding an extra rail or two is easy! Whether you own your home or you rent, a gallery hanging system is the best non-invasive way to hang your art.

Give us a call or drop an email and let us help you upgrade your hanging solution!

Keep it Simple: Laminate and Mount

Sometimes, you just need to keep it simple. No big frame or fantastical stack of matboards, just a matte-finish UV-protective laminate and a permanent mount to a thin sheet of “gator” board.

We often recommend adding a frame to protect the fragile edges of the foam, but sometimes, keeping it simple is best.
