Prices and Schedules for 35mm Slides

The cost of your 35mm slides is determined by the schedule and the size of your files. The schedule fee is calculated by multiplying the number of slides times the schedule rate listed below. The file size fee is based on the total number of megabytes submitted minus your file size allowance. The file size allowance is 1 megabyte for every 10 slides. The difference is assessed at $1/megabyte. You can reduce or eliminate the file size fee by keeping your file size reasonable (reducing file size) and making multiple copies (increasing your allowance). Compressing your files into a zip or stuffit file is not required, but may help you organize large orders and may reduce the file size fee.
