Aero-Flights -

            We just got some photos in from our friend Aaron from the San Francisco Archer’s Cabin Fever tournament. We were very happy to get these.             We received some photos from Aaron a while ago where he was able to show us that the Aero-Flight vanes really do deliver better cast and lower drag with good arrow stabilization. That is what our own testing showed, but of course it is always good to get some positive feedback from independent sources isn’t it?             What makes us so excited about the newest from Aaron is that they also show another...

Engraving, Sewing -

Since Annette and I decided to add quivers to our product line up we realized that we needed to do some things to upgrade our processes and work space. First off, we got a laser engraver. Note the super cool safety glasses! 😊 We got it so we could easily get labels onto our products. Nice and understated and no irritating labels hanging out everywhere. Nothing to interfere with or detract from the functionality of the product. Then we went ahead and got a much better, more professional, sewing table. It helped a LOT with making the quivers. So far...

Although there was some misunderstanding at first they brought with them an idea and the set up to run a free drawing. Just sign up and and you're in. We're going to keep doing that. Met another vendor and they gave us some GREAT advice on different advertising channels. That will be VERY helpful. Annette and I worked great as a team....

Been wanting to do this for a while. This is a bit about us and building our arm guards. With some pictures, of course!  First off we trace out the main body pieces and the piece that makes up the colored accent bars. Here's Annette doing that part. The pieces are then cut out of the leather. It took a while for us to get some decent scissors for cutting this leather. That part isn't bad. Next though is cutting out the slots so the color shows. Straight edge, razor, and a steady hand is needed here. Once we get...
