I used to take mine to my local woodcraft. I think they oursourced it.

While they did a nice job, the hassle factor always meant that I used nicked/dull blades longer than I should have. I switched to a spiral cutterhead planer and I don’t have to think about sharpening anymore. Or about chipout, but that’s a different issue. It’s an expensive investment, but it pays off quickly if you use your planer often.
