All the development process is completely analogic. From chemical development to enlargement and printing, all is made in an analogic way. The printing is made on Fuji Crystal Archive - RA-4 process - chemical paper, and it's possible to choose between glossy and satin surface. No scan or digital procedures are made.

As above, the whole procedure is totally analogic. The printing is made on resin-coated Ilford Multigrade RC Express paper. Professional resin-coated prints are made on Ilford Multigrade MGIV RC De Luxe paper, and it's possible to choose between glossy or pearl surface. The fiber-based professional prints are made on Ilford Multigrade FB Warmtone MGFBWT lucida (is it of course possible to ask for an estimate price for prints on different types and surfaces of papers). Professional resin-coated and fiber-based prints are made through an enlarger, so it's possible to require, if needed, general notes for the printer such as variations in framing.

The developing and printing service is exclusively ANALOG, involves processing done manually and/or with automated machinery to ensure a high quality result and professional rather than amateur service.

In case of loss of films or damage to the rolls, ars-imago will provide a refund limited to the cost of processing and the value of the blank films.

Processing of special value, should be noted in writing or indicated on the processing form completion. Should the owner of the films wish to insure the material, he/she must bear the cost at his/her own expense. In case of failure to report or communicate, the value of the material delivered will be equated with that of a blank film of the same type and brand.
