Actual PK-59 mailers are still good for processing Kodachrome at Dwayne's until the end of 2009.
The yellow mailers sold with Kodachrome in Europe are not technically PK-59 mailers, and those are no longer honored.
I don't understand why there is a distinction but I know that this is what exists.
Dwaynes has been quite friendly with me. I talk to Tammy Charles there often.
You can also substitute other Kodak mailers for PK-59s but you might have to make up the difference in cost.
I have lots of DP-12 mailers for example, and will try to use those as a credit toward my other Kodachrome processing.
If you have questions, you can call Dwayne's directly and ask for Tammy.
I don't have the monetary value of all the Kodak mailers with me, as I'm traveling, but it's interesting....
Good luck Pip and all the other Kodachrome shooters!
