Tintype Snappak from Hipstamatic

We love tintypes!  It seems that we are not alone in our love of everything tintype.  Have you seen the Tintype Snappak from Hipstamatic?  It is a plug in for the Hipstamatic app that allows you to take a photograph with the look of a tintype filter.  It seems the filter mimics a Petzval lens and collodion pour off marks.  It is a go to on my iphone for when I want to snap a fun photo and post to instagram.  Why not also upload these fun tintypes to make a real deal tintype you can hold in your hand not just swipe on your phone?  Our 2.5 x 2.5" tintype is the perfect size for these fun Hipstamatic tintypes.  Upload your favorite digital tintypes, get started here.
