Turn Around Times
All Pro8mm manufacturing, processing, scanning, and camera repairs are done on-site at our Burbank, CA facility. Turn around times vary by product, and are schedule and volume permitting.
If your project requires a faster service or a specific turn around time to meet a project deadline, please speak to one of our sales coordinators. The turn around times below are not guaranteed, and Pro8mm will not refund or credit for any delay, regardless of the circumstances.
- Film is processed daily starting at 10:30AM Monday-Friday.
- Not all stocks are processed each day. Same day rushes are available for an additional charge. Please speak to a sales team member if your project requires a same day service.
- A Sprocket Order is required before we start any scan job.
- If you are sending film to us, please make note of your ship method, tracking number and when you sent it to us.
