5x7 | This distinctive size is an excellent choice for those who would like to see more detail in their tintypes. The 5”x7” plate has a slightly longer proportion than our classic 4”x5” plate, which lends well to family portraits, couples, and maternity portraits.

The 5" x 7" format is a standard size and can be easily framed and matted.

*tax included



Considered by many to be the Polaroid of the 19th century, the tintype is made almost instantaneously through a process that uses hand poured chemicals on an enameled sheet of metal. Tintypes, often found today in near original condition, were passed down as family heirlooms and valued for their time-tested archival stability.
