TINTYPE PHOTO LAB

TINTYPES MADE FROM YOUR IMAGES

Authentic Tintype enlargements hand-processed and shipped right to your door with the digital negative to Tintype technique. Tintypes are one of the first in-camera photographic processes and were widely used during the Civil War era.  People are enamored with the magical shimmery metallic qualities of a Tintype.  Using a combination of digital and a historic process, Tintype projections can be printed onto large format plates, composites, and used in mixed media.
