L. King, Folsom

“After going through over 500 slides that belonged to my grandparents, I had only 2 decent shots of my little sister. I hoped to have these printed as a surprise 60th birthday present. Thankfully, Cox Black and White Lab was recommended to me. Katherine explained the process, offered suggestions to improve, and she even expedited my order so that I could get the photos mailed in time. The slides were 55 years old and had been stored in a garage! Still, Cox was able to scan and print with beautiful results. Sis was ‘misty eyed’. I highly recommend the experts at Cox for any important photo needs.”

Brenda K., Sacramento

“Cox Black & White Lab does spectacular B&W restorations. I had three B&W family photos ruined when saltwater was accidentally splashed onto them during maintenance on one of my reef tanks. I have worked with Katherine at Cox on several previous photo projects and did not hesitate to contact her again to help me restore the precious B&W photos of my father in his Army uniform, parents’ wedding picture, and a photo of me at age 2.

The damaged photos were touched up and digitized and now look better than the original images. Their staff is professional and knowledgeable. If you have B&W photos that need processing or restoring, Cox’s staff will assure you that your photos/negatives are in good hands.”

Yoshiko M., Sacramento

“It is getting harder and harder for budding Ansel Adam photographers to get black and white film processed without the expense of setting up a darkroom in the house.  Cox Black and White Lab is the last dip and dunk processor in Sacramento, and luckily, they are the bomb!

In a world of machine processing that scratches and damages negatives, Cox is an oasis for real photographers. I wish they developed color negatives so I wouldn’t have to drive to Berkeley to get my negatives processed. The best thing about Cox is their customer service — they take the time to work with beginning photographers as well as pros. They are one of those businesses that believes in SERVICE.

They provide high quality black and white prints using black and white printers instead of color printers so there is no degradation in the image — these are real black and white images — no blue shading, no brown shading, no polluting of monotone.  Just the standard black, white, and grey.


Charles L., Citrus Heights, CA

I had a roll of film developed there recently and they were extremely helpful and polite, and the work was great, I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them myself!
