Hi Debra, I'm trying to learn more about cocoa butter printing, computers, and getting customer logos on my chocolates and you seem to be the "go to" person for that. Would you mind emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org? I have a ton of questions and limited funds and time to get a proposal worked up for a corporate account.

I really appreciate the trouble you took to help me. I will be tempering and dipping all day and I am sure it is going to go a lot better as I am going to watch a video again before I start.
