Editor’s Note: If you are reading this from a mobile platform, you are probably saying “finally.” It’s been a while, but we’ve once again found a solution for mobile users that we liked and one that we think is better than ever before. There are some minor bugs that we know about, including one that only seems to be affecting Brooks, and we will try to resolve them in the coming days. If you are experiencing some, please contact us. Oh—if you are trying to get cigar bands made before the trade show, good luck.
