I used FotoKem for several <100' rolls. After processing they spiced
several rolls together, precisely keeping track of sprocket holes, to
make frame consistent print, they didn't trim off anything to speak
of as per my instructions.
I needed to make sure they understood that the film would be coming
to them on daylight spools, which made all the difference.
