4KB 27C256 Device Atari 2600 Cartridge

I received some blank Atari 2600 PCBs in the mail today from the delightful Albert Yarusso. Doesn't the purple look nice? These carts are 4K carts and are made to use 27256 / 27C256 devices (which are actually 32KB) instead of the less common and more expensive 2732 / 27C32 (4KB).

Won't you need to add a shift register as well? I thought that's what the 7404 on the PCB was talking about?

By the way, thank you very much for the SMS 32KB cartridge instructions. I'm gathering the parts together to make my own in the next few days. Did you have to take any special steps to burn the test program onto the EPROM or did you just point your burner software to the .BIN or .HEX file and have at it?

Pardon me, I must be tired. Not shift register, I meant to say hex inverter.

Where could I purchase some of these? It looks pretty sweet and I love the purple! I'm just gonna grab a 2600 jr. cheap to replace my misbehaving heavy sixer. Cool!
