Word documents must be converted to a different type of file to obtain 35mm slides. We are experienced in doing this conversion for you, but there are costs involved in addition to the imaging of the slide, and these costs vary depending on the complexity of your Word pages. We will be helped considerably if you put the text for each slide on a different page of your document. There is no need for page numbers, and you may include special notes or instructions to us on the page referenced, as long as the note is clearly marked as such. We will also need to know what color scheme and background type you desire.
When you save your file, go to the drop-down menu in the upper left of your screen; choose "File," then "Save As," and save the file as a .doc file. We have installed on our machine all the fonts which came with Word as well as with Windows, but not all are active all the time, so let us know which fonts you want us to use for your slides.
Photographic Specialties is no longer producing slides and transparencies. I have been self-employed for 35 years, but looking forward to retirement since my wife died five years ago. With the decline of conventional photography and the recent recession, the availability of film and chemicals as well as the volume of work has declined to such an extent that it is no longer possible to have fresh chemicals to develop film. I hope that if you still need conventional slides and transparencies, you will be able to find someone who can produce them for you. Thank you for your orders over the years.
