Featured Products

Create a tintype from your photograph

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
