Free PCB drawer and unlimited free PCBs

Posted on Tuesday, April 26th, 2011 in Free PCBs, kit biz, PCBs by Ian

Free PCB recipients can now pick their own board from the new free PCB drawer! The drawer is full of scrap PCBs: extras from our projects, abandoned prototypes, and new experimental designs still in development. Until recently we had no idea what was in the PCB drawer, now everyone can check availability online. You can choose any PCB you like and checkout with a coupon code.

A shop setup should speed up the free PCB processing. The address format is standardized and ready to print on a label. Some hassles with the Twitter giveaway should be resolved. We also get to experiment with an online store, without the pressure of handling money.

Head over and peruse the free PCB drawer, then get a coupon code in one of our three weekly giveaways:

  • Free PCB Sunday. The classic. Every week, right here on the blog
  • Tweet-a-PCB Tuesday. Follow us and get boards in 144 characters or less (later today!)
  • Facebook PCB Friday. Free PCBs while you wait for the weekend

We’re thrilled when someone builds a board. Blog it or post pictures on Flicker, and we’ll give you another code for the free PCB drawer. It’s like a free PCB subscription!

Thank you to everyone who helped test the shop last week.

Free PCBs are made possible by your purchases at Seeed Studio and the Seeed Studio Fusion PCB service. Thanks for your support!

This stuff is always accompanied by conditions and a disclaimer, so here we go:

  1. This isn’t a contest or raffle, we’re just giving away our scrap PCBs first come first serve
  2. There’s no cash value and coupons are good for a week
  3. We’ll keep doing it while we’ve got PCBs and stamps, but we might stop at any time

      Hi Kevin,

      I’m sorry, we’re not setup for sales. This is just for free PCBs using a coupon code. We’ll give a few away on Twitter tonight, and 2 other times every week.

    Oh, I need a dope slap. I ams ooo sorry I looked at the blog post wrong. :D Note to self is not to read and get excited about getting a free POV Toy board before morning coffee :D

    Would it be possible to make the coupons you get last more than a week? I noticed some of the boards take 2 coupons and this way you could “save” up even if you were busy that week.
