InkShield kits are available in my store.
If you want to buy parts separately on your own the following resources will be helpful:
- Components list at Mouser (all but the power connector and SIL headers): Mouser Project Page
- SIL headers (either one, NOT both)
- normal male (2ea)
- Stackable female (1ea)
NOTE: Additional headers may be used to make this stackable on a Mega
