Inspiring Children Through Creativity
Created in 2011 by husband and wife duo, Jos and Heli Baker, Tinc is now a global pioneer in children's stationery, gadgets and gifts. Ranging from backpacks and pencil cases to watches and water bottles, Tinc is expanding rapidly through both its franchise and wholesale model.
Tinc started its wholesale journey in 2013 with the John Lewis Partnership who remain a key strategic partner. Elsewhere, we are creating strong working relationships across all retail sectors, from supermarkets to stationery chains, travel retailers to independent businesses both in the UK and overseas.
"The name derives from the three core values of Think, Inspire & Create; something that Tinc tries to achieve with every product and promotion we offer."

Jos and Heli Baker - CEO and Founders
In 2011, Jos & Heli Baker, a husband and wife team, found they were struggling to find cool stationery for their 4 children. With no UK retailers offering anything even resembling 'lifestyle stationery' that inspired children whilst at the same time appealing to parents, the idea of Tinc was born.
