I hate advertisements just as much as everyone else.·
However, I have grown from being a simple hobbyist on these forums to actually making some money using parallax and other products.·
One thing I found especially handy was the ability to make surface mount products quickly and easily.·
Key to this has been the use of mylar stencils.·
Seeing an opportunity to provide others with this capability seemed to make logical sense and we recently purchased a laser expressly for this purpose.
We are offering 8.5"x11" mylar stencils for SMT designs.·
You send us a .eps file of the SMT resist layer and we'll send you a mylar stencil the next business day.·
.EPS files are easily generated from most PCB packages (Eagle and ISIS I can confirm).
You can use these stencils to make your own hobby or even commercial products.·
See how we make our gps loggers via http://www.instructables.com/id/EV6AYB8F4WXXL1X·
using these stencils.
These are the same stencils used by Sparkfun in their tutorials - http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/present.php?p=Stenciling
