Advertise with TinkerLab

TinkerLab is the popular creativity and creative education blog, founded in 2010 by arts educator, Rachelle Doorley. It receives thousands of daily visitors and is supported by bustling social media communities via Facebook, Instagram, and Google +. Brands who are interested in reaching active parents and teachers find that advertising on TinkerLab is a great way to connect with the right audience. We’re picky about who advertises on our site, and usually find the right fit with brands that are as passionate about tinkering, creativity, parenting, and education as we are. Welcome!


Who should advertise on TinkerLab? If you have a product for makers and inventors, a lifestyle blog, Etsy shop, non-profit organization, or business that would like to extend its reach, a TinkerLab ad or collaboration could be right for you.

Who reads TinkerLab? A recent poll shows that most of our readers are parents, and a smaller but significant number are school teachers. Our readers are primarily women who are looking for projects to do with their kids, craft ideas, and education-related inspiration.
