Loupe digitizes all film formats, and is the exclusive scanning service for CSW Film Systems, Chicago's long standing film development lab. Please review details and pricing below.
We are in partnership with CSW Film Systems, offering easy dropoff/pickup from their location in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. CSW, owned and operated by Osan Chin (pictured above), is Chicago's only downtown film development business and they continue to offer dip&dunk hand processing. Scan order forms, pricing, and general information are available at CSW as well as on this page. We are excited to offer a new level of convenience to Chicago's photography community.
Contact us via email or phone to discuss details, pricing, and timelines.
↳ Roll Scan Order Form
↳ Scan Pricing
↳ CSW does not accept payment for scanning, Loupe will send scanning invoices by email
↳ Loupe scanning invoices must be paid to receive file download link
↳ We pickup/dropoff rolls of film from CSW on Tuesdays and Thursdays, around 3pm
↳ Roll scans are usually available within 3 days
On the scan order form we ask where you would like to pickup your negatives after scanning, CSW (West Loop) or Loupe (Humboldt Park). We bring back scanned rolls of film to CSW on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and are ready for pickup within one week of dropoff.
After ONE MONTH all film not pickuped will be trashed. We do not feel good about this, but Loupe and CSW do not have the space to store the hundreds of rolls that have been left/forgotten.
Please pickup your film!
