Stephanie Tardy Duimstra's Profile
Hello! My name is Stephanie and I make a line of clever, keepsake paper goods under the name Type Shy. Using vintage and unique materials, my items are made with my two hands in my tiny Michigan studio. I aim to provide you with special, one-of-a-kind items that you are proud to share with your family and friends. My work has been featured in Uppercase Magazine, Weddingbells, and CRAFT.
I believe strongly in the community aspects of handmade. I founded the indie craft collective Handmade Detroit and the Detroit Urban Craft Fair, and was sad to step down after a move took me out of the area. I'm honored to have been named a Crain's Detroit Business "20 in their 20s" for my work in making handmade more visible. My work with Handmade Detroit was also highlighted in Bust, HOUR Detroit, Metro Times and numerous blogs.
These days, you can…
