About

I started working online as a freelance graphic designer back in high school. As a kid, I messed around a lot with Paint on our family's old school Macintosh. It wasn't until middle school that I was introduced to Photoshop, and the passion grew. I was finding myself designing a bunch of fliers for the local punk rock shows that my friends would play back in California.

Right before I turned 21, I moved to Colombia, South America to live with my cousin and her family. While I was there, I decided to go to vocational school and study under the carpentry program. Upon receiving my carpentry certification, I decided to give good old college another go. The time between finishing carpentry and going back to university was when I decided to put myself out there and start taking in clients that needed a graphic designer. The college I joined there decided to put me in freshman classes to see how well I was able to understand everything, even though I would have been entering what's better known as my "junior" year. It didn't take long before I dropped out and put all my focus into building a business online.

From 2012 through mid summer of 2013 was when I started my first business. This was my first real bit of success which made me never want to work for someone else ever again. Why build someone else's dream when you can be building your own? Since starting my first business, I deviate away from that market and am now focusing more on what I enjoy doing.

We started Tame Mane™ back in 2015. I was growing my beard and a friend has asked if I ever used beard oil. I used coconut oil, but never tried a blend. I decided to make my own, and I absolutely loved it! So I decided to turn it into my new business. It was a huge stepping stone considering I made the decision to deviate away from the online market and try a new approach. We set the launch date of Tame Mane on October 24, 2015 at the Central Florida Veg Fest which is a fairly large event (at least for us at the time). From then on, we continued doing more events, especially music festivals. Within a year of starting Tame Mane, we've been able to experience so many different events and have been meeting tons of new friends along the way.

Originally, Tame Mane was just supposed to be a beard oil company, but it has become so much more than that. We added a few things to our shop when we set up at different local events. I kept a wood theme going of pins, magnets, pendants, stickers, and a lot of custom work. I never added any of this stuff to the Tame Mane website, so after receiving a large amount of feedback from all the amazing people who support us, we decided to take initiative and finally open up this Etsy account!

We truly appreciate all the support everyone has shown us since the beginning. Seeing how far we've come since we started, it means a lot to us that there are people out there that love what we love doing.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

If you are looking for an item that we don't have listed on our shop, you can always reach out to us by sending us a message here, Instagram (@tame_mane), Snapchat (@tamemane), Facebook, or email! Summer tends to be the time where we are on the road a lot traveling to different festivals, so please be aware that custom orders requested around that time of year may take some extra time to finish.

Care instructions

Wooden Pins/Stickers

If you have one of our wood pins, or any wood pin for that matter, if it gets dirty you can take some 220 grit sandpaper and lightly sand over the top of it so you can see the contrast of the design again.

Same goes with our wood stickers, although if you have a wood sticker in a location such as your phone case, water bottle, or an item you tend to hold a lot, over time and depending on how rough you are with said item, the sticker will get flatter from how thin it already is due to our body heat and perspiration emitting from our hands. This will eventually happen to ANY wood sticker you may have.

If a pin back falls off a wood pin, crazy glue or wood glue will work just fine to get it back on there.

Care instructions

Pendants

• Try not to go swimming with it. Fresh water isn't as harsh as salt water, but keep in mind that frequent swims while wearing your pendant can give it a cloudy appearance and in some cases start to peel. If it does get taken in water, just dry it off and store it somewhere safe. Showers also apply here.

• Do not let it sit in direct sunlight for too long. The heat from the sun can cause the pendant to crack.

• If your pendant gets dirty, rubbing alcohol and a paper towel will work great to clean it up from dirt, fingerprints, etc.

We have gone through a number of different resins to find the one we believe will last over the years, however accidents happen. If you need a touch up on your piece, send us a message!

Wholesale availability

We offer a wide variety of different products at wholesale. For wholesale inquiries, please email us at info@tamemane.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

For larger orders, please allow 1-4 weeks for production time. Production doesn't normally take this long, but just please keep this in mind, especially if you are looking to have something by a certain date.
