Tonic Studios was established in the UK in 2001 initially focusing on the stationery / office / paper crafts and garden hand tools markets in collaboration with other brands. Tonic Studios later decided to enter the UK market using it’s own brand which it had launched into the USA several years earlier. Now with sales and distribution centre in Ripon, California, there is a growing team of craft enthusiasts.
From the outset, our belief has always been on high-quality products combined with innovation at affordable prices. With an in-house team of product engineers, graphic designers and illustrators, Tonic Studios has consistently grown and innovated product ranges into craft tool markets around the world.
At Tonic Studios we recognize that for the customer, one of the most important aspects of paper crafting is to have a product that provides a clean cut and beautiful finish. This means it is the most important feature for us when designing our products, from scissors and guillotines to paper punches and dies every product will have a crisp clean cut.
In the years since Tonic Studios has been established, the product design team has developed many products to provide additional end user utility. These include steel handles in scissors for extra strength and comfort and reworking of the blade technology on guillotines enabling the crafter to achieve a detailed hairline cut. Tonic's ever expanding range of dies, has helped bring us to the forefront of paper crafting with some of the most detailed versatile dies available on the market.
We have consistently expanded our knowledge of crafting products over the years to create the new brand Nuvo. These products in the brand consist of consumables to let the crafter add the finish, colour, and sparkle to any craft project. Nuvo has now grown from a range of glitters to crystal drops, glitter drops, embellishment mousses, gilding flakes, glue pens, alcohol based pens, embossing powders etc. In 2017 we launched Craft Perfect - a coordinating range of papers and handmade cotton stock. To work perfectly with our Nuvo products and Tonic Tools and dies.
