If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket -
and then giving Tater Tot only two of them.

Tater Tot Open House for Design Week Portland

Arty posted this on October 2nd


We’re excited to be opening our doors to the public for Design Week Portland’s open house on Tuesday, October 8th! Come by our office at 321 SW 4th Ave (between Stark and Oak) any time between 4pm and 7pm to meet Tater Tot, our canine co-founder; pick up a cool door prize (let’s just say it’s illuminating); and see what we’ve been up to.

Mandy’s stocking the drink mixer, and there will be plenty of snacks and treats for all. The 3D printer will be firing, and we’d love to show you some of the games we’re working on. Tweet a Vine video at our office, cc @tatertotdesigns, and if you get the most retweets, you’ll win a prize – fresh off the 3D printer!

Feel free to just drop in, but you can also let us know you’re coming so we can make sure we have enough cupcakes!

How Tater Tot Designs Does Customer Service

Arty posted this on April 15th

Our first in-person sale!

A man recently called our office asking where he could buy a FlatLight. When our founder, Tom, suggested he could find it on Amazon, our potential customer replied that he didn’t have a computer. So Tom asked if he would like to come to our office and pick one up. We’re not a retail location, but we made the sale!

It’s easy to forget that not everyone has a computer, or access to the internet, but could still benefit from our products. Our new customer is a gadget fan, and wanted to know what other products we had to sell! We’re looking forward to giving him a call the next time we have something new.

Dog Donuts!

Tater gets his own donut

Everybody loves donuts, and our friends over at Blue Star Donuts love dogs – so much so that they sell dog biscuits, too! As you can see, Tater Tot is a fan.

Another Great Review of the FlatLight

Arty posted this on April 3rd

 at Pocket Insider gave the FlatLight 4.5 out of 5 stars! Citing the convenient form factor and low battery replacement cost, Allistair recommends giving the FlatLight a try. He even posted a link to their unboxing and a quick demo video of how the FlatLight performs in the dark:
