I have 40 rolls of exposed 120 roll Color film.

I live in Georgia USA and am wondering does anyone know of a processing lab that gives a discount on bulk orders.
Used to have a good Lab in Atlanta but they sadly went bust years ago. So any help would be appreciated, cheers.

Try dwayne's photo, northcoastphoto, precision-camera (a site sponsor).
Give them all a call, see what they say.

You can check with your local Wal-Mart or Sam's and see if they still have their send out photo service. I know several years ago they did 35mm C-41 in house on their Frontiers but sent 35mm E-6 out. It actually went to a Fuji lab. All 120, both C-41 and E-6 got sent to "someplace in Parsons Kansas". It was Dwane's. Turnaround was 4 days and the prices were ridiculously cheap.

I tried getting a bulk rate for film developing when I had 80 rolls at one time. The lab I used was not interested.

Let the OP know who that lab was so he doesn't waste his time calling them.

The note on DR5 at the end might be relevant to bulk processing.

Not sure why anyone would give a quantity discount. It's all automated.

Why? To get the business. The lab I use does only a single run per week. I had enough to substantially add to that, if they wanted that business. They didnt so my film never ended up there.

I seem to recall Walmart had initiated a policy of destroying negs and just returning scans and prints. I would be sure to double check you will get the film back if it goes through them.

Exactly, so what if it is automated? It's the same reason why buying in bulk is cheaper than single amounts. It's still all automated.
It's about encouraging/attracting business.
