  5. Now, you may proceed in ordering the board by following the steps for Ordering Online or Requesting A Quote depending on what you need.

* Note: As a good practice, our engineers would prefer to review boards before you place an order. If you would like us to review your board, please send an email to with the subject, “Geppetto Design Review”. Kindly include in your email the design title and email address you used in Geppetto.


When creating a Geppetto custom board, there are three costs involved:

  1. The cost of your board. This is how much each board is going to cost every time you order that board. When you order 100+ units of your Geppetto board, the volume sales discounts applies.
  2. The initial order fee of $1,999.00. The basic manufacturing and setup fee applies to all first-time orders of any quantity. We guarantee to ship your board in 15 business days once the board design has been verified by Gumstix Engineering.
  3. The repeat volume order setup fee of $999. Manufacturing setup fees for reorders requiring no change to the PCB fab will be discounted to $999. Reorders for scheduled production orders of 120 units or greater will not be subject to setup fees.

Lead Time

For customers paying the initial order fee, our commitment is to get to you a working board in 15 business days. If it’s a repeat order for the same board, the lead time in the online orders and volume orders pages apply.
