Is the Royal Mail having a laugh? Last week they charged me 44p to send a roll of Sensia to Fuji (under their new system). This week, same PO, same clerk, same scales, same Fuji envelope and its £1 as apparently it's now a package !!!!!
So, 300% increase overall (and 33% over last week). What are others being charged - or have I been ripped off?

Sounds about right really... time to start processing your own?
About 3 years ago I suggested that those who wanted to stick with film might - one day - have to consider doing their own processing etc because of cost, as the rest of the world switched to digital.
Got howled down of course..........
Funny old world!
A large letter is up to 25mm thick and would be 44p, but a packet is anything over 25mm and is a £1. Was it loose or did you put it in the plastic tub as well?
CB: I'll keep posting, you(and others) can keep spending money on printers and ink cartridges, officially the biggest rip-off known to mankind!
I use The Dark Room and Metro Colour Lab. They both offer free postage. They both offer quick turn around. Hope this helps.
While our friend Gordon is still in charge of my finances, I shall continue to use film, as I've got loads. I buy my film as cheap as possible, even if it's out of date.
The thought of digital just leaves me cold. Don't understand it m'lud! Nor can I be bothered to learn it. I love my EOS 3.
Use a company that allows you to send films to them by Freepost - e.g. Peak
Thanks for the feed-back folks. I do use Peak for 120 film and find their service excellent. A bit miffed that rip-off Britain now expects a quid every time I use 35mm. No doubt the cost to Fuji of posting trannies back is also £1 or more, so I expect pre-paid processing will also get more expensive.

EDIT: Found the darkroom: http://www.the-darkroom.co.uk/
EDIT2: While looking around (the darkroom adds up to £24.90 per film for what I need - which is £7/8 more than peak) I found these people:
(also known as fotostation.co.uk)
Has anyone had any experiences with them? They ARE right around the corner from where I live, so I might pop by a spare film to have a trial...
google works wonders. or look above in this thread for a link to peak
