Film Developing By Mail

send film icn boutique film lab

Sometimes the original way to do things is still the best way — in this case, that’s developing film by mail. You shoot on film for a reason. Maybe it’s the process of shooting rolls of film or the unique and satisfying aesthetic of a film print. Either way, film suits you. 

While shooting on film is fun, getting it developed isn’t always the easiest next step. That’s where we come in. Here at Boutique Film Lab, we have positioned ourselves as any photographer or hobbyist’s one-stop shop for film developing by mail. 

Film developing by mail can be a straightforward, painless, and trusted process. Over the years we have simplified this into a few steps that get your film developed and back into your hands in the fastest way possible — all while ensuring negatives, prints, scans, and more are of the highest quality.

How Film Developing By Mail Works

Step 1: Package your film safely in a bubble wrapped or insulated envelope 

Step 2: Send your film to our Nashville location 

Step 3: Allow 5 – 7 business days for film developing, scanning and/or printing 

Step 4: Film negatives/prints will be shipped back shortly after the order is completed. 

Step 5: Enjoy your top-quality film products!

How To Send Us Film?

  1. Place an order
  2. Decide whether to drop-off film in person or mail it in.
  3. DROP-OFF  We offer two drop-off locations.  More details HERE
  4. MAIL-IN Put film in a padded envelope or small box. It is also best if the film is a moisture-proof bag to prevent any damage.  Packages can be shipped via any carrier (USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc).  However, most customers find that USPS is the most economical.  Please include your name in the return address or include the order number on the outside of the package.  Optionally, you can print out the PDF from your order confirmation email and include inside the package.  Mail to:  Boutique Film Lab – 569 Stewarts Ferry Pike Nashville, TN 37214

PERFECT! Part of the reason I enjoy film is waiting to see how your pictures turned out. The excitement builds up as each day passes. This time however, I needed something ASAP. These guys did a wonderful job taking a 2 day rush order especially under quarantine. Could not ask for better service 🙂
