Keep Hope Alive With The RedOfShawshank Micro Decoration

As we’ve seen time and time again, electronics engineering and PCBs are more than capable of being works of art. Whether it’s the superb circuit sculptures we’ve seen, or the application of a solder-mask and silkscreen on a PCB to create a durable and unique decoration, there are plenty of options out there.

The RedOfShawshank Micro Decoration caught my eye as it brings to mind a very relevant and positive message I think we could all benefit from in the year 2020. The inclusion of a message that reads “Hope is a good thing,” emphasizes the message behind the illustration.

The decoration itself is a transparent solder-mask on a black base with a white silkscreen. The surface finish is ENIG golden and the size is 50x50mm, hence the classification as a “micro decoration.” A pair of M3 Hex Spacers are also included for standing it up.
