Waukesha, Wis., Jan. 16, 2020 – Turner Licensing is excited to announce a new partnership with Tinc., a family-founded, UK-based company that manufactures school supplies, toys and gifts aimed to inspire children to be creative.
Turner Licensing will be the exclusive North American distributor of Tinc.’s wide variety of products, including pens, markers, coloring sets, highlighters, pencil cases and notepads, as well as everyday products like water bottles and glow watches. Tinc.’s best-selling item, an interactive advent calendar featuring daily gifts and toys, will also be available.
Many products are part of Tinc.’s colorful character collections, called tribes, each with its own unique personality, habitat, traits and favorite color. The tribes, Hugga, Kronk, Mallo, Ooloo and Tonkin, encourage children to express and embrace their individuality.
Tinc. was founded by husband and wife team Jos and Heli Baker in 2011 when they were struggling to find fun and modern stationery and school supplies for their four children. With no UK retailers offering anything even resembling lifestyle stationery at the time, the idea of Tinc. was born, and the first store opened later that year in Bath, England. Today, Tinc. has established itself as one of the UK’s most desirable lifestyle stationery and accessory brands, and has expanded throughout Europe, Asia, North America and Africa since its inception.
The Tinc. company name derives from the three core values of Think, Inspire & Create, something Tinc. strives to achieve in every product they offer.
“The addition of Tinc. products into our Turner brand enables us to give customers something fresh and fun that kids of all ages can enjoy,” said Turner Brand Manager Michelle Rand.
Tinc.’s customers are women from 32-48 years old who are motivated by funky, fun and functional stationery. The core end-users are her children, both boys and girls, who want the latest and greatest – and coolest – items in school.
Tinc. products are slated to be available in March 2020.
