aPlate was built on fun. In doing so, we have worked with 7 suppliers and have set us 3 weeks to get from the idea to this very paragraph.

Here is the formula: idea + magnetic plate aka magic screen + black foil + thin black lash + thick black rubber lash + silver custom made stickers + handcraft.

The process looks very familiar to the other projects we have been busy with lately.
