NEW PRODUCT -Circuit board necktie Resistor – Emerald with gold ink, narrow
NEW PRODUCT -Circuit board necktie Resistor – Emerald with gold ink, narrow. Resistor. Super detailed resistors and capacitors oh my! How can you resist? Impress any nerdy guy or girl: computer scientist, programmer, electrician, engineer or maker. Is dad, grandpa, boyfriend or husband a tinkerer with solder and blinky things? Perfect for groomsmen and brides boys of the geeky persuasion. Nerd power!
This print extends very high up on the tie, approx. 18″ (46 cm) from the bottom point; perfect to be seen from under a vest or jacket. The tie is made of a soft microfiber, having almost the same hand as real silk and is printed with high-quality, non-toxic, water-based ink. The tie is available in narrow, 58″ long. All new materials! For reference, narrow is 2.75-3″ wide at it’s widest point.

It appears these were for appliance controls (particularly ovens and cook-tops) in the late-80’s. When fabricating actual circuit boards, silkscreens are used to print etch-resistant inks on to the board to protect the copper foil. Subsequent etching removes the unwanted copper and one is left with the desired copper pattern for conductivity.
LIMITED EDITION! As is the nature of vintage screens, once these screens die, that’s it.

Cyberoptix only prints with high-quality water-based inks. They’re invaluable for the health of their shop, the environment, and they perform much better on delicate fabrics. Water-based inks have a much softer hand on fine fabrics and will never crack over time as Plastisol inks (the industry-standard for large-run shops). Not to worry, our water-based inks are as or more durable than harmful solvent-based inks.
Microfiber is Vegan-safe and our most common finish – why not exclusively silk? Many who choose not to consume animal products for ethical, dietary and religious reasons are concerned about the silk industry and wear nothing derived from living things. In the interest of not being exclusionary, they have decided to carry ties in synthetic microfiber. As dry cleaning is not always an option, this makes the synthetic finish far easier and more practical.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
