Mr. Shute, I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work all around, great shipping, processing and scans. NCPS is the third lab I have tried to get quality work from, I guess the third time is the charm. Special thanks for boxing my film and scans so well. I have had disks arrived broken, not good. Finally your scans are as excellent as Ken Rockwell proclaimed, most excellent. I look forward to doing more business with you.
Many thanks!

I just wanted to let you guys/gals know that I've been using your services since September, 2009. Since then, I have had about 25 rolls of film developed and scanned. The quality is by far the best I've ever seen in a 35mm film scan, and I'm extremely happy with the results. Besides that, your prices are the best in the business and your turn around time is fast. Please, keep up the great work and service.

Hello, I just received the scanned results of a few B&W films that I have sent recently and I would like to send you a big thank you! The technical work is very well done and I am extremely pleased with the quality of the scanned pictures. Keep up the good work!
-Sandro Marchioro
I received the order yesterday and I am reviewing the scans on my computer now. This is the best work you have done for me to date, I am extremely satisfied.

I just received my first package of film and scans back from you this afternoon. I am incredibly impressed! I've never seen 4 consecutive rolls of film perfectly developed with no water spots or marks or anything.  Loaded from the DVD these things look far better than anything that's ever come off of my digital cameras. I am just blown away by the quality of your work and how easy it was to do business with you guys.
I'll be calling first thing Monday morning to get an account set up and on file with you guys. I am in love with film again, and you guys have proven that there are true tradesman left that actually know film. All that, and your prices are far lower than the good labs here in Minneapolis! What a deal! Thank you again from a (new) long-time customer!

I received the slides which you processed and scanned, they look great so many thanks.

Today I received the pictures. That is fast! We have photolabs in Norway, but NCPS is faster, and the quality is better. Norwegian labs are a bit more expensive.

I would like to send you and your team a note of thanks for my print order, #42921, that came back to me the other day. The prints looked just like my slides. I don’t get that often with the lab I used to use. Your print and scan guys really know what they are doing. Some of these prints were gifts to people over at my local camera shop. They were definitely impressed with the quality of the prints. Thanks again for the great work on my prints.
- John Voso
You guys & girls do great work, thanks again.
- Mitchell Falk
My developed slides with enhanced scans arrived today.  I am very impressed and happy with the quality. Thank you very much.

When it comes to service, quality, and customer satisfaction, North Coast Photo has been my choice as a local lab for over 20 years. As a full service lab, no need to shop around... Thanks for always being there.

​I have been availing myself of the services of the NCPS Lab for processing and scanning black and white negatives for some time and have been consistently happy with their work. The staff is very pleasant to work with and strive to produce a quality product. I also highly recommend them for color printing where they do superlative work.

​On behalf of the Chapel of Awareness I would like to thank North Coast Photographic Services for your excellent work on our photo. The enlargement and attention to detail was perfect and was the centerpiece for Rev. Larr's memorial service. With much appreciation,
- Rev. Ann Marie Lorengini, Pastor, Chairman of the Board
Bonnie and North Coast Photographic Services are both excellent!! I have used a lot of labs over the years and never had the individualized attention that I now receive. They are unbelievably concerned with giving you the best possible product I very seldom have any re-makes (which is very different from what I had been used to). They will work with you in all ways possible if you happen to have any special needs. They can’t work miracles but they sure come close.
