About

Welcome to TipoFilato, which is “the yarn guy” in Italian. My name is Vince and I am a graphic artist in the publishing field. The term “Jack of All Trades” is the mindset of my shop. I am a graphic artist by trade, with over 30 years experience in the field. I am also a hand-knitter and designer with over 20 years experience. So I’ll be offering a variety of things here; from hand-knits to painted t-shirts, hand-dyed yarns to graphic designs for the web and print. If I can do it, I’ll be offering it.

HAND KNITS
My hand-knit items represent my personal interpretations of familiar items as well as original designs. I list material content and basic care in each item description. All hand-knit pieces are each made solely by myself, by hand. I do not employ knitters, use automated knitting machines, nor do I use pre-knit pieces.

PLEASE NOTE... all…

All hand-knit pieces are each made solely by myself, by hand. I do not employ knitters, use automated knitting machines, nor do I use pre-knit pieces.

PLEASE NOTE... all pieces are created in my Smoke-Free and Pet-Free home.

HAND-PAINTED YARNS
My hand-painted yarns are all colored using a variety of non-toxic gel-colorant dyes, I do not use harsh acid dyes or mordants. Each skein is individually painted, making each a one-of-a-kind creation. The fiber content and care instructions are listed in each item description. If you want a larger amount of a dyed design, I can produce a larger batch. Please remember that as these are all dyed by hand, there will be variations between the skeins even when dyed with the same dye batch.

VINTAGE
I have added Vintage Items to my shop offerings. I have always been a lover of retro and kitsch, so I have "an eye" for finding the fun and unusual. I am a former Tupperware dealer, so the Vintage Tupperware are either well cared for pieces from my personal collection, or quality pieces I have found.

PAINTED T-SHIRTS
These are original designs using acrylic fabric paints on 100% cotton t-shirts. Each design is uniquely hand-painted and one-of-a-kind. Similar designs may be available on different sizes.

GRAPHIC DESIGN
Your shop is uniquely you, so should your shop graphics. I offer graphic designs with over 30 years of experience in print publication, advertising and web graphics. I do accept custom orders and will offer package deals for multiple items

TipoFilato reserves all rights in design services. You may not manipulate or alter a TipoFilato design, or have any other designer or service vendor to do so. This would be taken as copyright infringement.

All graphic design purchases will be delivered via email as a jpg, png or pdf. There is no delivery charge for graphic designs.

On custom designs, I will send up to 4 sample design revisions included in the price of your custom design package. Additional revisions will incur an additional charge. I will make corrections to any errors I make (ie. The correct information was supplied but was incorrect in the design) at no charge. There is a correction charge when changes must be made due to incorrect information being supplied.

Please note that all sample design files will contain a “sample proof” watermark in the file. That watermark will be removed in the final approved file design.

Your purchase is for the final approved design and does not include other sample designs. If you wish to purchase the other sample designs, I will offer them to you at a price reduction.

IMPORTANT NOTES
I am dedicated to giving you the best quality product available. Please contact me with any problems or concerns.
