Third Space is the Charm!

As of today we have officially moved into our third location, 509 Gray Ave in Sutherland. The space is considerably larger than what we had before, a necessity with our rapidly growing membership. We will post some photos as soon as we get settled.

Congratulations Rylan! Peachy Printer Crushes Funding Goal!

Congratulations Rylan!

We’re ridiculously excited about the success of Rylan’s Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign for the Peachy Printer. He was able to raise just over $700,000 which will go towards R&D of the printer and, eventually, production of nearly 5,000 Peachy Printers for backers. We’ll be posting periodic updates here regarding his progress, but for the news as it happens you should check out his website, http://www.peachyprinter.com. Also worth noting is that The Peachy Printer currently holds the title of “Most Funded Canadian Kickstarter Ever” as mentioned in the Kickstarter blog. Let’s see how long he can hold that title for!
