Well, Denver was a rewarding experience and we really enjoyed the nice mountain air, vistas, and even a little bit of skiing. With that said we are back open for business and will be shipping orders starting today to clear our backlog. We should be all caught up by the end of today!

Any orders placed during this time will ship on 13-15 April 2011. Sorry for any inconvenience we hope to do business with you […]
Totally great video on how to design pcbs for manufacture. Don’t forget that our stencils can really help you out while you are prototyping!
We are a proud sponsor of Sparkfun’s “‘Stencilling Class” and are providing our easy to use Stencils for all of their students. A tutorial should be posted on their website following the completion of the class.
