Tinkerine Studios Sales increase 270% in 2015 to $1,268,000

VANCOUVER, Jan. 12, 2016 /CNW/ - Tinkerine Studios Ltd. ("Tinkerine" or the "Company") (TSXV: TTD, FSE: WKN WB6B and OTC: TKSTF) is pleased to announce record sales for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 of approximately $1,268,000 (unaudited, see cautionary note), a 270% increase versus the comparable period sales of $343,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014. During Q4 2015, Tinkerine recorded sales of $349,000, a 236% increase over Q4 2014 sales of $104,000. Higher sales during 2015 are attributable to increasing demand for the Tinkerine Ditto Pro 3D printer, filament consumable and associated software downloads from TinkerineU, which is Tinkerine's content sharing platform advocating hands-on learning with 3D printing.

President and CEO Eugene Suyu states; "We are very pleased with the growth of Tinkerine in 2015 and the continuing interest from the education sector. Our team at Tinkerine is developing new relationships with members of the education community, with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Education, Arts and Mathematics) based education content. In addition to identifying and fostering new relationships, we are receiving new requests for methods to incorporate 3D printing into everyday activities.  We are proud to give new users the opportunity to build up a foundation of skillsets in 3D printing, and will continue to develop new content for advancing educational content. I want to thank all shareholders and stakeholders for their support and look forward to delivering continued success and accelerated growth."
