Remembering Steve - and Laser Beams

Our world was deeply affected October 5 with the passing of Steve Jobs. His unbending genius and willingness for risk have hugely changed the world we live in. Steve taught us a lot about stepping into the unknown and following a hair-brained idea.
In the 20 days since Job's passing, we've put a lot of thought into how we can learn from his life. We've concluded that it's time to make great art. Let our products, and life, be an artform unlike any other. As a company without a cranky HR department, nor pesky bean counters, we basically have unlimited creative freedom. It's time to go. No time is better than today. And so we press upward.
"You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backward. So you have to somehow trust that the dots will connect in your future. Believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow your heart. Even when it leads you off the well-worn path. And that will make all the difference." ~Steve Jobs
We're super proud to announce custom laser engraving. As a group of artisans, we're excited to team up with You... yes You to make your case a piece of art. Any Blackbox Case is now your blank canvas. So this is where it gets fun! Let's put your crazy art, logo, name - anything you can think up - on a Blackbox Case. Are you an artist? Imagine a limited art series...
We're thrilled about this holiday season. Orders are piling in, so make sure to order any Christmas gifts now to reserve your spot - (and ensure your boyfriend has a case with your face engraved on it.) We're pressing into exciting new ideas - new inventions - new everything. We can't wait to see where it goes. Oh, and come say "hi" on Facebook, it's a great way to keep up with our daily shenanigans (jumping the belt sander off the roof?)
Here's to the journey,-Team Blackbox
