Welcome!

Winkshop, Inc is pleased to announce their new corporate website. Founded by national American Sign Language (ASL) performer and presenter Wink, with the goal to provide high quality training, educational, and entertainment materials for all ASL users and those acquiring the language.

We take pride in the fact that we create materials based on individual needs. We do not solely create products on what will be popular for everyone. Rather, we have listened to the individual requests from viewers like you. Whether your needs are basic sign language acquisition, or complex tasks and skill augmenting, we are working on it!

Winkshop has set its priorities! We give back to the ASL community by providing financial support to domestic violence programs, and museums, by providing ASL versions of their guided tours. Winkshop is here to entertain and educate you. To learn more about our philosophy take a look around the website and to learn more about our philanthropy program,

Winkshop, Inc currently produces work by seven different authors, with five published works and currently producing seven projects. Winkshop also conducts research projects covering various topics within the American Sign Language world. Winkshop takes pride in their passion for ASL which leads to innovation!

Slogan "ASL x Passion = Innovation"

We at Winkshop believe that innovation can be a byproduct of passion, it just so happens that our passion is for ASL!

We want to create outstanding products that educate and entertain. Learning shouldn't be boring, it should be something you want to do and something you can easily incorporate into your deliberate practice.

What Does "Winkshop" Mean?

The concept is very simple, Wink is a workshop presenter, "workshop" starts a W, so naturally one of Wink's friends entitled his workshop a "Winkshop" Wink loved it so much he decided to name the company after it… Thanks Adam!

Winkshop and the Environment

We all know that DVDs are made of plastic. It's impossible to make them from anything else but optical grade polycarbonate. However, the plastic content of the disc is only a small part of the overall plastic of the disc package. DVD cases are made from polystyrene. The weight of the cases exceed that of the disc by several factors. At Winkshop we wanted to make sure we didn't contribute to the problem, but set an example.

This means the majority of our products are shipped with a board jacket, which is the disc package with the smallest carbon footprint, not the polystyrene cases which are not biodegradable. In addition, smaller packaging means smaller shipping requirements which also is healthier for the environment.

Our board packaging is printed on stock that contains at least 10% post-consumer recycled content, and comes from mills that procure raw materials from lands that are forested in a sustainable manner, without clear cutting. We go to great lengths to print on premium recycled board stock that provides you with Grade A quality.
