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.  We do minor touch ups of every photograph free of charge.  If there we areas of damage, we offer a full restoration service. 


If you have ever wondered how to transfer your photos onto glass, then here’s your answer. Save your loved images as beautiful hand-poured silver photographs on clear or colored glass.  Each one of our hand poured ambrotypes begins by making a silver gelatin negative of your precious photo.

Our ambrotypes are 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.  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 and co-founder, 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!  

Your one-of-a-kind ambrotype is shipped to you or a loved one, boxed for gifting.  Select your glass style of either ruby red, cobalt blue, or opaque black.
