Tintypes are photographs printed directly onto aluminum plates. They are created in a darkroom using a 19th century photographic process called Wet Plate Collodion. Each has it's own beautiful imperfections from hand processing techniques.
We can make a tintype from digital images you upload and ship them to you.
The Tintype Photo Lab was created out of a love for slow thoughtful photographic processes. It honors the craft of printmaking and puts an old/new twist on digital images.
