Cost for all other size reels
We charge for only what's on that reel to the nearest 50 feet. So if you've got a 400 foot reel but there's only 100 feet on it, you will only pay for that 100 feet.
Cost for small 3 inch reels
We charge for 50 feet no matter how full that small reel is. This is because our processing costs for a small 3 inch reel is the same whether it's full or not.
Film Length – Overfilled Reels
Sometimes too much film has been spliced together and put on a reel. There should be at
about 5 to 7 mm from the edge of the reel that has no film.
If you have a reel filled almost to the edge (well past the last measurement marker), then
add 50 to 100 feet to whatever that reel normally holds as an estimate.
Remember, this is just an estimate. After we transfer your film, we'll have an accurate count.
That's why we ask that you pay after your order is finished. It avoids our having to send refund checks
because it worked out cheaper.
