You never call anymore. You’re always so busy with your friends. But that’s fine. I’m alright.
Don’t worry about me. Still. Is it asking too much to just check in every once in a while to see how I’m doing??
Anyway, Acme Design Inc. can do pretty much everything you can imagine, and possibly some things you can’t.
Call us and see for yourself.
Just a few of our capabilities, making versions of things smaller or bigger than they normally are
(Hey! get your mind outta the gutter) 3D scanning and rapid prototyping.
Plus the usual, sculpting, molding, casting, vacforming,
painting, machining, fabricating, sewing, predicting the future.
You know, the usual, making stuff. Give us a call, you said you would. Ask for Clint
