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 tintype has beautiful imperfections made from the hand processing techniques.
We make tintypes from digital images you upload!
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.
