A Brief History

Nametoons(TM) was born in 1976, when two young artists from Detroit, Michigan, USA, and their father, experimented with balloon letters that spelled a person's name, but were drawn in a cartoon style -- colorful and "alive" with eyes, a nose, arms, a hat or bow, and other accents.

From 1976 to 1986, Nametoons(TM) were available for purchase at metro Detroit area art fairs such as the Wyandotte Street, Grosse Pointe, Grandmont, and Plymouth Art Fairs, to name a few, and at select gift shops such as "Emily's Across the Street" in downtown Detroit, and "The Mole Hole" in Grosse Pointe. Back then, Nametoons(TM) designs were available on headbands, t-shirts, totebags, mugs, plates, bowls, placemats, and woodcuts.

With the demands of school, work, and other activities, the two artists limited their drawing to family occasions... until now! Nametoons(TM) is back with a new product line, to bring smiles and color back for a new generation of kids of all ages!
