Our Craft

We exist to create things where passion and purpose come together.

We believe in building the best and sweating the details.

By controlling every step of the process, we can build your sign just the way you envision it.

Great signs start with great materials

Our obsession with what goes into our signs means we only use hand-selected materials to get the best results possible.

Built by humans

Despite having amazing tech, we’re always willing to take the long way to get it just right.

Made in the USA

All our signs are made and shipped worldwide from our tiny studio in Berkeley, CA.

The Space

Tinkering Monkey is located in a 100 year old brick-and-timber warehouse space in Berkeley, California. The building housed a bank in the 1950’s, with the original cast iron vault still operational. In 6 short years, we’ve gone from one car garage to a 3,000 sq ft warehouse.
