Thinglink.org has now been officially launched! To get started, register yourself a free maker account.
Creating thinglinks is easy: click Create, and a blank form will appear with a unique thinglink. To register this thinglink for your work, fill in the required information. You might want to describe your work by writing stories about the ideas, materials, production techniques and the personal history behind the product, but it’s also ok to just add a link to your home page or blog post. To make it easy for other people to find your work, add tags (keywords) that describe your things. On Thinglink.org people can search things by makers, tags, time period, and description.
Thinglink.org will also publish personalized thing-labels that you can use to label physical or digital products. Currently, the Labeling function is still under construction, but you can already send your own label design as a jpg file to to ulla*at*thinglink.org.
There are still many details to be improved on the site but please, be patient with us. We’ll be doing our best to improve both the design and the functionality.
