What Is CheatKard?

CheatKard is the pocket-sized companion you can rely on for accurate and useful information. Gone are the days of trawling through an abundance of varied search results and forum posts to find the answer you need or flipping to page 102 in your chunky Electrical Engineering textbook. CheatKards are small, lightweight, with concise, accurate information and references for you to use whenever you need them.

Built To Be Used > Built To Last!

A Tree Planted With Every Set!

We wanted to do our bit to help, and what better and more universal way to help the planet than by planting more trees to help combat global warming! A percentage of profits from every CheatKard set you back will plant a tree in the Amazon Rainforest.

The Creation Of CheatKard

Cheatkard was origionally invented (And secretly without us realizing) back in 2018 when the first Nerdonic PCB business reference card was designed, created with an aim to give clients and customers a more relivant business card compaired to generic paper cards so that they could see a glimps of the world behind Electrical engineering.
Many clients and fellow tech nerds loved the idea, with friends of clients who were interested in tech asking to get a business card too, simply because they thought it was cool to have.

From there we experimented and decided to make it into a product. Shortly after the first designs we used our contacts in other fields from photographers, doctors and surgeons, scientists, designers, mechanics, and more to help us design useful CheatKards in a wide range of catagories!

More To Come!

We're working hard to finalize our Cheat Kards for a huge range of other topics, Electrical Engineering is just the start!
Teaming up with respected professionals in their respective fields allows us to ensure nothing but the most accurate and useful information on all of our cards.
We have already started developing add-on sets for Electrical Engineering including information on Radio Frequencies, PCB Antenna design, Certification help and more!
Aswell as that we also have many other CheatKards being developed and on their way including sets in Computing, Adobe, Photography, Science, Medical, 3D Printing, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, DIY and much more!
Heres a sneak peak of a small selection of CheatKards from different catagories:
