Tinks was started by me, Lucy, at the beginning of lockdown. My then 4 year old needed to shield which meant the whole family was facing months of being stuck in four walls, I needed to keep my mind occupied and thus Tinks was born.
I am sure you will agree that hand painted products are wonderfully luxurious presents to receive. At Tinks we offer that same hand painted wow factor but at affordable prices, vital in this current economic climate. The majority of our products are priced at around the £20 mark and for those looking for something slightly more pricey we have our gift sets which are priced between £25 and £45.
Each product, from the font to the style of artwork, is painted with the child in mind. Being a teacher, I feel the precursive font is a useful tool in supporting children to learn the correct letter formation. Using the correct letter formation is a National Curriculum expectation hence why the standard script I use in this pre-cursive style. I have since added two new fonts due to popular demand. The designs I paint are bold, bright and colourful appealing to the young. Customers can either select designs from my growing bank on the website or ask for something bespoke.
Tinks was a finalist for two Little Ankle Biter Hampshire Awards 2022; best local business and best new business.
