Did you know that TinTypes were originally only used in Formal sittings and studios however later they were more commonly used by open air photographers?
Did you know that TinTypes were originally made on iron that had a lacquered finished that allowed them to be ready in just minutes?
Did you know that TinTypes were originally made in the 1860s and 1870s but continued into the 1950s before making a return in the early 2000’s?
Today we use a little different process to make TinTypes than in the 1800s. We expose our images digitally with no dark room chemistry but our Digital TinTypes allow us to create actual prints on metal in the traditional Black & White, a Brown & White Sepia Tone, a hand-tinted color, and full color prints.
