    I don't think you'll find anyone down there, but I could be wrong. In Seattle it's now Panda-
    533 Warren Ave. N.
    Seattle, WA 98109

    Ivey, the big lab that was here for decades, just finally closed..

    I do mostly b&w or C-41 and "roll my own" in a JOBO. I bought a bunch of C41 chemicals from Rainier Photo Supply when they shut their doors.

    Commercial large format processing has pretty much bit the dust in this region....

    Since Strode McGowan decided to close their studio and lab, I don't know of anyone near Tacoma that still processes E-6. If you could ship your film, Calypso Imaging or any number of labs could handle your needs and at a reasonable price.

    Good luck.

    Cool Re: HELP E-6 4x5 in Tacoma?

    I mail my 4x5 E6 to R&R in Spokane Color
    Shipped film on Monday UPS ground and got it back on Thurs
    Gig Harbor to Spokane

    They were recommended by Glazer's in Seattle. I just started with 4x5 and of course am concerned that E6 film and processing may really disappear.

    The Evergreen State College in Olympia WA does e6, C41 and B/W processing - for students and community members as well. Reasonable prices and usually a 24 hour turn around.

    Yup yup.

    There you go!
