About

Tag, you're it!

Tag Team Tompkins began working together in 2008 - I had retired as a product development manager at a large social expression company, where my daughter still works. My husband edits, proofreads, and has created our business databases. We found success at local and regional art and craft shows and retail shops. We opened our Etsy shop in May 2010 and have enjoyed this unique venue's community and customers.

We begin our design process by collecting copy that has caught our eye - and come to agreement on the bits we like the best - for example, "Common sense is not so common." by Voltaire really resonated during election season. I begin to draw a silhouette and cut it from black paper - the cutting simplifies the image. Madeline creates the hand lettering and completes our design files using Adobe Illustrator. We consult with Bob Atkins, owner of Skylab Letterpress about paper choices, costs, and inks and his printing schedule- returning to see press proofs as Skylab begins our final printing.

We have family in Japan and travel there several times a year. I found a cord that I wasn't able to source in the USA. These cords adorn our 8 bookmarks. Our paper choices are Cranes Lettra and Mohawk Antique Vellum Loop, two fine American made papers. We're picky about our materials (and proud of it).
