We also arrange a prepaid mailing label if you are wanting to recreate a photograph you have in print.  Just reach out to our team if you want to make these arrangements. 

It doesn’t matter if your original is a black and white or color photograph, we take the time to make sure each section of your picture is of the best replication quality possible before crafting your new work.  We do minor touch ups of every photograph free of charge.  If there are areas of damage, we offer a full restoration service. 

A Digital Tintype is an authentic tintype made from your photos making it a creative and unique way to preserve and display favorite images from your digital library or photo albums. Making tintypes will guarantee your image will be visible for generations to come as an heirloom to be treasured and passed from parent to child.

Each one of our tintypes is hand made with the finest chemical process to guarantee longevity in your heirloom photograph.  We use traditional silver gelatin film to make each and every one of our wet plate collodion works.  

Our goal is to make the best quality wet plate collodion tintype of your photograph.  To achieve this, we keep our photographic process analog and first create a negative for exposure.  

Why make a negative?  It is very important to keep the entire process photographic to maintain the quality of the replication.  There are subtle details in tone that make up the silver shading that is your photograph.  Those can only be preserved by making a negative to expose.  Our wet plate collodion photographer, Jen Jansen, has decades of experience in restoring photographs to their original papers and frames.  If you have questions about your order, or want to check in about our process, just reach out.  We will most likely email you back within the day to answer any of your questions!
