MADE IN THE USA!
The greatest part of making, sharing and selling open source hardware is what happens after it gets out in the world We are constantly surprised by the things people do with open-source products and projects. Makers email pictures of hardware hacks, and post code that takes devices in directions we had never dreamed of or thought possible. We know are not alone in this, and have a strong feeling that anyone who has released open source hardware has spent time digging through web searches and forums looking for projects that have used their hardware in unique ways. We want to celebrate these open source hardware hacks and upgrades. Anytime someone modifies a piece of open source hardware and adds to either the code, or the hardware, we will attach one of these badges of honor to the maker (and project!).
Adafruit's stickers are manufactured in partnership with AMBRO Manufacturing located in NJ, USA. AMBRO is a family owned and operated business since 1990 that celebrates open-source with Adafruit Industries. You can meet their team here. AMBRO uses non-toxic soy based, water soluble and environmentally friendly printing supplies, threads and more when possible. AMBRO has over 250 solar panels that generate 50,000 Kilowatt hours per year. Their equipment runs solar powered, so the wonderful things AMBRO and Adafruit have worked together on are made with the sun! AMBRO Manufacturing was recognized by Impressions Magazine, a leading trade publication in the garment printing and embroidery business, who published an article highlighting AMBRO and their commitment to their environmentally focused manufacturing practices. Adafruit knows you have a lot of choices as to where you spend your money and time, we hope our open-source values, commitment to green technologies and partners helps make the decision easier and fun!
