Tinker-N-Co a history!

I loved summers as a child. My cousins along with my sister and I would always run about trampling my Nana's flower beds, our pure white socks and our dungaree straps flapping about our legs. My sister had this mop of brown ringlets that bounced as she ran. We'd spend hours sifting what was left of the coal in the coal shed, between deliveries, thinking we would find diamonds. Nana's just-laundered sheets transformed into the most amazing tent canopies, the lawn strewn with cushions pillows and blankets and our little fingers busily creating delicious mud pies. So oblivious to anything other than being children on those hot summer breaks. A look of anguish and a hint of a smile on my Nana's familiar face, at first the state of the garden and then at our muddy clothes and faces said it all. The Cul-de-sac would echo with her cry's "get in you little Tinkers!" Or she would chase us with the garden broom around the garden and we would all lay under the sheets where she would tell us stories. Ducu ("Duck-ee" - granddad) would call us in for baths and "Welsh chips!" (steak fries - I'm pretty sure they were just regular chips cut with a wavy chip cutter, but this is what we called them.) and we then sit and listen to him play boogie woogie on the organ.

Twentyfive-ish years on I pay homage to my fortunate childhood summers. We weren't by any means a wealthy family in the monetary sense, however it didn't matter we had creativity and the freedom to imagine and create. Summers back then seemed hotter, longer, the air cleaner. The mud pies and creative tent making skills turned into a love for colour, design and an appreciation of our world, (I also still love those chips.) Armed with my sidekick desktop, (it has seen better days bless it!) it is with these childhood roots Tinker N Co has bloomed into what it is today and still continues to evolve. A business that is larger than one person. I may be at the forefront steering this ship, but it is my roots that contribute to the core of what you see in my store. A love for all things especially life and what our world has to offer us.

I spent the past 11 years building my brand on Ebay, only in the last few turning my attention to Etsy. Bringing my tangible, physical craft items from Ebay to Etsy. Digital design gives me the freedoms of creating and allows me to tap into a whole new community with the added bonus of speedy digital delivery.

Today - I am and will always be a daydreamer of sorts. Spending more time dreaming and creating than doing unmentionable necessary's. I spend hours drooling over the perfect colour or paring design with the right type font (does this make me weird?) the mood in the new office has to be set just right. Not too mention the oodles of jars and boxes filled with Sparkly, glittery, shiney's. (I'm a little bit of a magpie). I will always be thankful to my past, but am also equally excited about the future.

If you made it this far, well done you! I sincerely hope you find something that inspires you and who knows, maybe a trip down memory lane for you too. I adore what I do and love sharing and encouraging creativity in others. I truly believe I have something in my store for everyone kind of creative.

If you're reading this then I thank you. It means you care about where your graphics come from and the policies that I operate by.
Tinkernco is all about nurturing ideas and inspiring everyone to explore their creative side no matter their skill set. My business was imagined from strong family roots, where creativity was what made us rich and being inventive with what we had created joy from the simplest of things. You'll never know excitement like a kid with some paper and new feltips. I can be consumed with pattern, colour and concept and equally humbled and hopefully inspire some creativity in even the most unlikely of folk. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your world.

Frequently asked questions
Do you take on custom work?

I would love to accommodate all requests for custom orders, but there just simply isn't enough hours in the day. I am currently revamping this section of my business and will be releasing custom graphic slots within the store shortly. These spaces will be on a first come first serve bases only. After many many months of research, I've deemed this to be the most efficient and fairest way of working on custom projects. Please get in touch if you want to find out when my next set of released dates are.

Can I make planner stickers with your graphics and papers?

Yes! So long as the stickers are printed and cut by you and sold as a physical item you can make them under my normal licensing that comes with just the cost of the clip art or paper pack. No additional license is needed.

However, if you want to sell them as a digital supply. My Commercial + license is necessary. You can find this under licensing in my store.

Can I make logos and blog headers with your graphics under the normal licensing??

No for client based business resale my commercial use + license is needed for all business to business branding related materials. You can find my license in my store under license.

However if you want to create a logo for your own business. or extended branding for your own business then Yes, for your own personal business use only you can create a design to fit your style without the need for a license.

Do i need to give credit and can i make freebies?

Credit is entirely up to you on items you sell. I understand how hard it is to get that competitive edge and if that means protecting your suppliers that is fine with me.

If you want to make freebies you can, however i have just 5 simple rules to follow. No exceptions.

* Permission is granted for 1 freebie per month with my designs.
* You can use a maximum of 1 clip art piece and 2 patterned paper per freebie
* Product must be a NEW finished item, merged flat with no white backgrounds.
* You must state the freebie is for Personal Use Only.
* Credit Tinkernco for artwork with a clickable link to my store within each blog/social media/w

Discounts, Promotions and sales

I don't like sales.. To me it just reminds me of those next to cheap stores with huge bins and jumbled heaps of unloved clothes or battered tins. My graphics don't belong tossed at the bottom of some neglected storage bin with holey clothes and misshapen packets.

Does that make me conceited?

I prefer to think of it as my confident commitment to you, to always provide beautiful detailed graphics at fair prices always, all year round. Over 10 years of service to the graphics community.

I have 1 promotion and it is on all the time. It thanks customers that purchase a little more than just one clip art or one paper at one time. Coupon code is available 24/7 in my store banner and you can use it as many times as you like. No restrictions.

Do you offer support for graphics software?

No. Here's why. There are so many different packages available for graphics on the market today that it would be impossible to be fluent in all software, and because of this I wouldn't be confident offering support to a customer. If you have questions by all means do get in touch. I will of course do my best to help you, but as standard, we do not offer software support.

Can i make Nail Wraps with your designs?

Yes, you will need to purchase a license for a supply from our store. Since Nail Wraps are a supply and you are not offering a service with them a license is necessary.
