  1. A slight technical nit – orthochromatic film doesn’t make sepia prints any more than any other film; it means a film that doesn’t react to red light (and can therefor be developed under a red safelight).

Sepia prints have to do with the paper chemistry and can be made from either type of film.

I don’t know if it still exists but there used to be a private facebook group of people that worked at the Polaroid Copy Service in California. I knew people that worked the one in Cambridge, Massachusetts before it closed. People their made their own copies of people’s “special” pictures and I’m sure they have tons. Couldn’t get into that facebook group unless you worked there. I’m sure they were sharing….
