It’s the last installment of this birthday blog series! Here’s a look at the last three years, which have been some of the most intense but also most exciting at E+B. Missed the early years? You can read all about those here and here.
I am always striving to do things better, add more products that our customers want, and create a connected community of E+B fans so I’d love to hear your thoughts! Got a product you’d love for us to make? Ideas about how you’d like to see your shipments come to you? I want to know about it. Please share your thoughts here.
