The Creation of the Merchmakr Screen Printing Press

by Gary Jurman September 25, 2013

We're getting set to launch our first Kickstarter campaign. It may seem like we are at the beginning of a journey, but merchmakr has been over a year in the making. Here's some of the stuff we've done throughout 2013 just to get us ready.
  • Experiments and prototype manufacturing galore.
  • Back and forth with oodles of manufactures, from fabricators to extruders, and mold makers to rapid prototyping firms
  • Asking our existing customers tons of questions about what they want and why they need it
  • design and redesign using many different CAD programs including FreeCad, Sketchup, Rhino, and Inventor
  • lawyers and patent applications
  • learning the difference between pipes and tubes
  • Endless trips to Lowes and Home Depot
  • Speaking in the tongues of metric and standard, SLA, FDM, ABS, and PLA
  • more and more
...and just when the search seems hopeless, it's Craigslist to the rescue. Again and again. -- Gary
