Simply put, Tomjacks Balmchaps are one-quarter ounce tins of all-natural, hand-made lip balm, designed to restore health to your chapped lips.
It all started in the kitchen.
TomJacks began when we, two brothers, started out making lip balm for fun in the kitchen at home. What we thought was fun, Mom called a real mess! However, when she tried our first lip balm recipe, she liked it so much that she said she could stand the mess, so long as we promised to (and made good on our promise) to clean it up. And BOY DID WE CLEAN UP! But not only in the kitchen . . . at Dads office Christmas party as well. Everyone there wanted a Balmchap of their own . . . and they even forced us to accept money for them!
At that time, our balmchaps were housed in plain, plastic containers with colorful lids and our own special hand-written labels glued on top. Not the best packaging perhaps (especially the glue on a hot day), but people really loved the lip balm. And because they did, we set out to make more balmchaps and improve the packaging.
Tom Jacks is all grown up (at least on the outside)
Today, you will find more than a hand-written label on each separate, flavorful tin of balmchaps. Look close and you will notice a unique picture of two boys doing something that all real, old fashioned boys love to do, all real, old fashioned men would still love to do (if their wives would let them) and all real, old fashioned ladies love to watch boys (not men, unless it is with their own sons) do, such as: playing hooky at the nearest fishing hole, concentrating on a serious game of marbles, trying hard to fly a paper airplane, perfecting a game of leap frog, riding a two-seated bicycle to the Promise Land (we admit we dont have one of those bicycles, but they sure look fun), and so on.
Beneath each picture is our product name, named after us, Tommy and Jackson Dunn, and Balmchaps in quotes. Balmchaps is in quotes because we call ourselves the Balmchaps and like to think of ourselves as just two chaps who like to make lip balm (that is, in the spare time we find when we are not doing everything shown on the labels).
Why should you buy our lip balm?
Many thanks and may God bless you richly.
Yours very truly,
Tommy & Jackson Dunn
