Tiptop is a father-daughter company founded in 1986 by Tom Chien. Over the last 35 years, Tom's daughter, Kristine has grown the company into a design and print house of artists and craftsmen. We believe that the items we choose to surround ourselves with should authentically express who we are and should also be a source of inspiration and well-being in our lives. We aim to improve on this by delivering the latest and best in design and print technology. The Tiptop world is full of boldness, edginess, eccentricity and customizability—and our goal is to create quality products that bring delight and beauty through home decor, art, gifts and stationery.
Our look: Our designs are distinctively bold yet eclectic and skews modern. Kristine's love for unexpected delight and strong statements through simplicity set the brand apart with a look unlike any other in the market.
Our founders: Kristine and Tom built the brand learning as they went and based on the idea that Tiptop products should be well-designed, high-quality and deliver joy. Both father and daughter continue to lead the Tiptop team from their original 1986 studio in Miami Beach, Florida.
Our vision: We may have started as a neighborhood black and white 4x6 photo lab, but we have expanded our product line into a wide range of products all aimed to deliver happiness. We are passionate about creativity, thoughtful craftsmanship and innovation and our goal is to ensure quality service and remarkable products.
