Why was PCBDaddy created?
The founders of PCBDaddy often experienced frustration when they were trying to find a manufacturer that could produce their one-of-a-kind prototypes or small quantities of custom electronics.
They reached out to the wider electronics community and heard the same stories over and over again: Students, hobbyists, inventors, and entrepreneurs were often ignored or written off by the big electronics manufacturers because they were ‘not worth their time’.
Determined to right this wrong, the team banded their talents and resources together to create a marketplace where even the smallest electronics designer would have a voice.
Who is PCBDaddy?
PCBDaddy is a group of dedicated electronics professionals with one goal: Put the power of custom electronics manufacturing into the hands of the people.

What are PCBDaddy’s main roles?
