Transcript DECEMBER 30, 1986 / MONTROSE VOICE 15 Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Fast Photo Developing PRICES At Henry's, you have your choice of three rate formulas, which are comparable to the rates charged by other fast-photo places, drug stores and supermarkets. Basically it's this: The longer you can wait for your photo developing, the lower the developing and printing price. After all, "Time is money." You may think drug stores and supermarkets have about the lowest prices around for photo developing. And you are almost right. They usually offer what is called "next day service" but which is in many cases a two-day wait. (You must drop your film off before their daily pickup and cannot pick it back up until after the next day's pickup. So, if their daily pickup is at, say, lpm, and you arrive on a Monday at 2pm, your film won't be back until Wednesday at lpm. TTiat's 47 hours later. Yes, they call this "next day service." At Henry's, we offer this same "speed," if that's what you want, but we're honest in our description of it. We call it "2 Day Service." And with it, you get our lowest rate, which is about the same as the drug stores and supermarkets. It's as low as $1.99 a roll. By letting us have 48 hours to do your film, we can do it during our slack periods, or at night, while continuing to keep our machines running for those customers who want their photos "right now." This brings us to our famous "One Hour Service." Sometimes you just don't want to wait. You need your film developed and printed immediately. Even while you wait. We'll do it. And in less than an hour for 90% of the customers wanting this service. Our one-hour service costs more, of course, than drug store processing. But it's still reasonably priced at as low as $6.59. How about a compromise between speed and price? We also have a real One Day Service, where we promise to have it ready for you in 24 hours, irregardless of what time you bring it in. That price is as low as $4.99 a roll. SIZE OF PRINTS For 35mm film, you have a choice of standard prints (3x5), large prints (4><6), or professional-size prints (5x7). The bigger the print, of course, the more the cost. SHOTS THAT DON'T COME OUT We don't charge you for blank or unexposed shots on your negative. We charge a small developing fee for the negative and then only charge you for the "printable" pictures. CENSORSHIP It's not for us to judge. We develop all our customers' pictures confidentially with the same care and ■ quality. NO GETTING LOST At the drug stores and supermarkets, your film goes on a lot of trips. Some chains even process their Houston film in Dallas. All that traveling increases the chance that your film will get lost or damaged— or sent to someone else while you get theirs. At Henry's, we do all 35mm color film in our lab—right there where you dropped it off at 428'/_ Westheimer. The regular color-print film never leaves. (We do send out slides, black and white film, prints from prints, and 8x10 and up enlargements. They all are picked up and returned by the Kodak commercial lab in Houston, which has the ability to process everything that we can't.) PAPER AND CHEMICALS We use Kodak and Fuji paper with Kis chemicals. Why the mixture? Kis (the manufacturer of our equipment) recommends Kodak paper, which works best in most cases. We have found, however, that Fuji paper will give a better look for some customers, especially those using Fuji film. So we use what works best for your photos. We are not tied down to one company, like most other fast-photo and drug stores are. COMMERCIAL PHOTO PRINTING Lit us bid on your mass quantities, from a couple of dozen to a couple of thousand. (Photos make great invitations.) And all photo developing from 1 copy to a thousand enlargements, gets the same custom quality control. 4281/2 Westheimer Houston, TX 77006 (713) 529-0869
