How it works

We recommend to create your own account at the NIMMFILM website (with login). You can retrive your address data at recurring orders quickly and have a great overview of all your past and present orders. But you can also order as guest.

Step 1: Order your desired services

When ordering over NIMMFILM shop simply select the desired services (eg “Develop film & scan”), specify the appropriate specifications (film type, film format, scan resolution, quantity) and ad it to the cart.

Your cart can be viewed and updated at any time. You also have the option of selecting various return or storage options.

And finally before the binding order, please login to your account or enter your address data (if ordering as guest), determine your desired payment option (bank transfer or Paypal) and final check your order.

Step 2: Send us your film or drop it off directly at NIMMFILM store

Upon completion of the order is still no payment. You will first receive an order confirmation via e-mail (to the e-mail address named in the customer’s account) in which we ask you to send us your film.

Please put your films together with the printed order confirmation (or stating the order number) in an envelope and send us everything as large letter or parcel to the following address:

04177 Leipzig

Step 3: Review your order and payment

When your films are received, we will check everything for completeness and integrity. In addition, we compare the submitted material again with the corresponding online order. If everything’s okay, we’ll send you an e-mail with the information that your order has been accepted and request to pay the outstanding amount.
If everything is okay, we will send you an e-mail with the information that your order has been accepted and the request to pay the outstanding amount.
