Don't Take Our Word For It

 I've worked with expensive shops before and can say this is the the future of PCB and hardware manufacturing. 

 The reason I chose MacroFab is because I like the platform, I had control over my PCB design, bill of materials and what I was getting. The other important thing is that when there was a problem, customer service was really helpful. 

 We quickly realized how forward thinking MacroFab is and immediately noticed the high quality of their manufacturing. 

 Automated interface to get things started plus the human interaction when needed gives the best of both worlds.
