Looking for Silver Print lab in USA

Good evening/morning All

I am quite content developing 35mm Black and White film at home.

Now, I would like to find a place that still prints wet/silver prints.

I hope to find a place with somewhat reasonable prices.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I only know of Blue Moon in Portland, Oregon. They have a good reputation.

Hello from Sarasota! I use Dwayne's Photo for developing and processing my film (C41 and B&W). They indicate that their B&W prints are true wet darkroom prints. Service and prices are great.
If you're not printing, you're just playing a video game about photography.

Panda Lab up here in Seattle. They do RC and FB up to 16x24” and prices are reasonable. I’m a scan/digital post/output person so I only have done their inkjet work (and can vouch they’re very good), but been meaning to give it a try.

Ilford has a printing service on their own BW papers, but I think it’s a Frontier system, ie digital input.

I'll add my recommendation for Blue Moon Camera. Great place and superb people.
They made a silver B&W print from me from a negative I shot in my Hasselblad. The film was very expired Agfa APX 25, and I accidentally underexposed the shot probably 3 stops, but they were able to make a print and it came out really well. I have it framed and hanging in my entry.

The Darkroom in San Clemente, CA prints, but I think only from scans.

Why not take the next step and take full control of the process?
Wet printing in a home darkroom will provide hours of enjoyment.
One can be set up permanently or temporarily in your bathroom.

Those are a fantastic set of options!

Thank you all for the info - including my near neighbor Aalfano form Sarasota

And the prod to do printing on my own, that would be the best

Thanks again!
