Boldport did a fantastic job designing and producing working circuit boards for a magazine story for American Marie Claire. We needed to make circuit boards that were very unusual in design under very tight deadlines. They did a perfect job - improving the original sketches, preparing the files, overseeing the execution of the boards as well as soldering the final pieces. The shoot received a fair amount of press, and was widely admired in the industry. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Boldport again.
We engaged Boldport to support us with product development and to help us develop a technical specification. I was struck most by the creativity that went into the production of the specification, with nothing taken for granted. This, combined with punctuality in its delivery, made it a rewarding experience to work with Boldport. I hope to continue working with them in the future.
We engaged Boldport to support us with the development of a controller for one of our products. I was mostly impressed by the originality and elegant design. They provided us a unique product of high quality. They were collaborative and patient with our complicated ways of working and very helpful in defining a precise spec, transforming our initial concept into a final and reliable working unit. Working with Boldport was a rewarding experience. We will certainly continue to work with them and be glad to recommend them to others.
We run introductory classes in electronics for children, to encourage them to take an interest in the subject. We were looking for a simple board we could use to teach soldering, but we wanted it to look “different”. Boldport’s design is an elegant design in the shape of a cuttlefish, which a child can easily solder up to make a fully functioning Arduino clone. Boldport provided both the design and oversaw manufacturing of the board. Their work was of the highest quality, and competitively priced. We feel we have a unique product, which is excellent value for money.
Calrec Audio wanted something unique to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary, and as Calrec started with a group of electronic hobbyists designing home amplifiers, it seemed appropriate to commission a small open-source amplifier circuit. Boldport turned that circuit into a beautiful, eye-catching, self-supporting board which we have since used as a DIY give-away to customers, and in several electronics workshops for children. It even has a snap-out key ring! They were very patient with our somewhat idiosyncratic ways of working and were incredibly collaborative, taking that initial concept and transforming it into a piece of art. Boldport have a first-rate ethos, with an emphasis on open-source designs and promoting electronics for all. Moreover, they make it fun. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.
