For the geek who has *almost* everything, a custom art piece is sure to impress!

  • Made from real recycled circuit boards
  • Choose your art/frame size, font, and circuit board color
  • Use the text box to explain your project 
  • If needed, use the image upload feature to provide an image you'd like us to work from
  • The piece is mounted on archival mat board and framed in a clean-lined black frame with glass

Don't feel limited by the options presented here: we can create so much more than what we can show. Use the contact form if you'd like more information about our capabilities or to help identify your project options. 

Frame size information:

  • Mini square is approximately 5 x 5 inches and matted. Perfect for 4 letter words
  • 5 x 5 matted to 8 x 8 (total item size is about 11 x 11 inches). Comes with a stand and hanging loop. Best for 4 letter words but can accommodate 9 letters
  • 8 x 8 matted to 12 x 12 (total item size is about 15 x 15 inches). Comes with two hanging loops


We use a computer controlled cutting machine to precisely capture the details of your custom art piece. The circuit board shape(s) will be sized to fit the mat but we leave some white around the sides for a polished design. We specifically use frames that can accommodate the thickness of circuit boards. Since we work with recycled circuit boards, every piece will be a little bit different. Therefore, the item you receive will be similar in scope to what's shown in the photos, but circuit board positioning/pattern will vary. 

Design Limitations & Considerations

If your desired word/font has fine details, we may not be able to make it in circuit board. Some designs cannot be made in smaller sizes. If you are uncertain, just get in touch with what you'd like and we'll let you know what's possible. 

Letter Style

Refer to the font chart for options. Zeroes Two was used to make the NERD art. 

  • Use the text box and image upload feature to help us understand what you'd like us to make. If you're not sure where to start, get in touch and we'll walk you through our recommendations and capabilities. You can call/text, email, or use the site chat feature

  • Custom orders are nonreturnable, but we endeavor to create a wonderful experience for you. If something isn't right, please reach out to us with your concern and we will provide several solutions, which could include replacement or repair. In order to prevent this, we strongly recommend you request a proof to ensure you receive what you expect. 

  • Are these circuit boards real? YES, and they really are this colorful! Refer to the color chart for an idea of the colors available 

  • We use keyboard circuitry overlays to create a more interesting white space: this is especially cool for flags that have a lot of white, like Texas and the USA flag

Circuit Breaker Labs

Handmade by Scientists and Artists

Every project starts with broken electronics

We primarily work with computer motherboards and we find ourselves enamored with their color. It’s how they’re made, so we build our designs around the colors we can find. Orange and purple are the rarest.

Hand and computer-operated tools shape the circuit boards

This router, for example, enables us to carve even the most intricate designs that would be impossible by hand. This also ensures that we can perfectly capture your logo, pet silhouette, or skyline.

Finished by hand

Finishing work is done meticulously by hand so that we can ensure every piece we send out meets our quality standards. Fragile items are packed with care to ensure a safe arrival, and small items are always gift-boxed.

About Us

Because Science is a love letter to all things STEM, particularly the fusion of art and science. A lot of the products you’ll find here and in our shop are handmade in our very own design lab, while some are the brainchild of other creators. We celebrate it all because science literally makes the world go ‘round.
