ILFOCHROME

At The Lab-Ciba we have been printing ILFOCHROME exclusively for over 30 years. We have seen the cost of materials rise steadily over the years. All materials are imported from Switzerland.

Last November ILFORD announced the discontinuation of their flagship brand ILFOCHROME CLASSIC. The reason being overall demand has decreased, and the raw materials costs had increased dramatically. Which has led to much higher production costs.

The bottom line, "It is not profitable anymore". A special final production run of the materials has been in the works for the better part of the year. As of the announcement last November a 30% price increase in the materials cost was initiated.

I will have enough materials for several years. This price list reflects those increased costs. Hopefully there will be another coating/run, but at this point I do not operate on that premise.

All work is printed on ILFOCHROME CLASSIC print medium. Everything is printed optically from 35mm to 8x10 transparencies. A digital file, film scans and negatives requires a digital interpositive i.e. (LVT). There is an additional charge for this. It is an extremely high quality film output. Occasionally a contrast mask is required and there is a nominal charge for this.
