Create a wet plate collodion tintype or ambrotype from your favorite photograph!

We are a full service wet plate collodion studio specializing in creating tintypes and ambrotypes from uploaded digital files and old photographs.  We created this service to provide an opportunity for anyone to create a wet plate collodion heirloom of their cherished memories. Our team treats each image as a historical artifact and takes great care to provide you with the highest quality product.

Our digital tintypes and ambrotypes 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
