We are a full service digital tintype studio and specialize in digital tintypes providing an opportunity for anyone to own a tintype. Our team treats each image as a historical artifact and takes great care to provide you with the highest quality product.
Our digital tintypes are created from authentic collodion formulas that we make by hand. Our collodion recipes are created from the 1860's photographer's formula book, The Silver Sunbeam. We make our varnish by hand as well, it is created using the same traditional formulas that have served photographers for well over 150 years.
We also create custom sizes, contact us for more information about custom sizing or get started with our easy order process by selecting a size
We offer four different plate styles for any digital tintype product. Each has their own tone and reflective quality. See the videos below for more detail

We love making tintypes and especially love the opportunity to take wet plate collodion sittings both on location and in our Chicago studio. Here is a tintype that was created on location at Northwestern University in Chicago. The couple were newly engaged and used the tintype as the photograph for their 'save the date' cards. It was a beautiful location for a lovely couple. Here's to their bright future! Here is a shot of the 'behind the scenes'! If you want to book your own special tintype sitting in Chicago or on location, email Jen for her availability and more information! firstname.lastname@example.org
Digital Tintypes was born out of a passion for testing the boundaries of what was possible in merging modern digital images and traditional photographic processes. Meet Jen & Simon:
