As two self proclaimed geeks who love fan art, we often found that the art we would see at cons would be out of our price range. We decided we would try to make art that was still high quality but more affordable. Most of our art pieces range from $15 - $25. All of our paper art is digitally designed, cut out of paper, and them assembled by hand very carefully with a little bit of glue and sometimes tweezers. This makes each piece a unique work of art! We also make a variety of vinyl decals and various housewares using premium quality outdoor vinyl.

What originally started out as a couple of guys who created something to help one child in need…has grown into a world wide movement of tinkerers, engineers, 3D print enthusiasts, occupational therapists, university professors, designers, parents, families, artists, students, teachers and people who just want to make a difference.

We also offer a series of seminars on how to run a business to help train new business owners and those who are still in the start-up phase. SCORE is one of the best kept secrets in town…and the best part is our counseling is FREE! We do charge a nominal fee for our seminars. Our offices are located at the NEC center in Fashion Square on East Colonial. Our goal for having a booth at the Maker Faire is to create more awareness about SCORE in the general public in the Orlando area.
