TcaDesigns • Wendy Tonsor & Tara Mueller

In 2010, Brad & Wendy purchased the business and ran it out of their basement. At the time Wendy still had a full-time job. Within the first year of running the business she had decided to dedicate all of her time to TCAD.

They eventually moved to a building on state st and are now located in the upstairs of the Linn’s Shoes building. Their entrance is conveniently located on the ground level of the back alley, making picking up an item a breeze with pulling up to the door. They have a showroom on the lower level with all of their apparel and goods.

One student asked how they keep up when demand is high - they both responded that they just make it happen even if it means getting little sleep.

Beyond custom apparel and trophies, their favorite items to make are handwritten gifts like handwritten recipes that are engraved on cutting boards. They love being able to help someone create such a special gift.

Tara showed each student how to weed vinyl and gave them a CEO decal for their cars or laptops.

Designing logos can be tedious work. Each student showed Wendy their logo for their individual businesses and she gave feedback.

So much was covered and accomplished in this business visit!
Thank you so much, Wendy & Tara!
