It’s looking a bit changeable outside so I’m kind of trying to take a bit of a day off, but this is too tempting! So let’s take a wander through another section of my store and see what goodies we can bring you today…
The first items I started making when I began my journey with 3D printing were little gadgets and nicknacks for the home. I made custom stands for my iPhone, brackets and towel hangers for the bathroom, chopstick stands for the kitchen (I love using chopsticks, they’re so much more… civilised than just spearing things) and so on and so forth. When I decided to start this business it was my chance to bring some of these designs to you, so you too can enjoy them and hopefully they’ll make your life easier as well.
There’s pretty much something for every room in the house! For the kitchen we have the Pouch Squeezer (originally designed because I couldn’t face cold gravy on my fingers when feeding my cats first thing in the morning). We also offer the service to make you custom-designed cookie cutters; send us a design you’d like made into a cookie cutter and in no time you can be making completely personalised cookies! For your bathroom we have our DrinksBath range; you can enjoy a nice soothing soak in the bath with your favourite tipple, be it wine, beer, coffee or whatever else it may be. For your lounge we have a range of clocks, consisting of a 3D printed clock face with an attached mechanism; the range is small right now but we always welcome custom orders. For your bedroom we make a range of decorative storage boxes, for your jewellery and other little treasures; there’s the IceBox Translucent Jewellery Box (for those fans of a certain ice-related Disney franchise). There’s also the Treasure Trunk, which can be supplied with a small laser-engraved plaque attached for extra personalising, and for my fellow sci-fi fans you can even keep your valuables in the most famous box of all; our TARDIS Storage Box (but it’s not bigger on the inside, I haven’t quite worked out how to do that yet).
We’ve even got designs for when you’re out and about. Carry plenty of cards to your next business meeting in the Cassette Box Business Card Holder (ask your parents what a cassette was, you young people), which can be printed, as can most of our designs, in a wide range of colours. We’ll even do our best to personalise it with your logo, to make it extra-exclusive. Keep your devices tidy with Folding Pocket Tablet & Smartphone Stands, which I’ve tested extensively with a variety of devices and seem to be doing pretty well so far; use it everywhere and then just fold it up and drop it in your bag or (funnily enough) your pocket. Keep your hands protected from hot Starbucks/Costa coffee (because let’s be honest, those cardboard sleeves are worse than useless) with The MugHug Collapsible Cup Holder, which also comes in a wide range of colours and can be personalised by laser-engraving. When you get to the office you can protect your privacy from spies, hackers, Facebook etc with the iMac Camera Shield. ‘Why not just put some tape over the camera?’ you ask? Well, can you just flip the tape up when you want to use the camera and then flip it down again when you’re done? No? Didn’t think so…. 😉
We also do our best to look after our furry/feathery friends; there’s the aforementioned Pouch Squeezer to keep your pets happy (and I’m planning on revising the design very soon to make it easier to ship, more compact and stronger). You can help out the wildlife and their new hungry spring babies with The FoodPod Wildlife Feeder, the prototype of which has survived the worst the local wildlife around here has thrown at it and has only needed a little bit of a repair when a gale knocked it out of the tree and it landed on a concrete slab from seven feet up. ABS is tough stuff. And finally if you want to help out those unsung heroes of the garden you can refuel the bees with the BeeBar Bee Feeder.
Do you have a special occasion coming up, where you need to give important little gifts? Maybe that special ring for that special person, a set of keys for a new car or a new house, a new ocular implant for that cybernetically-enhanced supersoldier in your life (although I may have made that one up)…? Make that occasion a little bit bigger and make them feel that little bit more special with a decorative 3D printed box to give it in, like our Giftwrapped Ring Box (again available in a wide range of colours) or the Treasure Chest Ring Box. We also will make you special 3D printed, laser-engraved gift tags so you can make it EXTRA extra special!
There’s something there for everyone and the beauty of 3D printing is that if you need it altered slightly to your exact needs we can do it for you. So check out our ‘Designs For Your Home’ range and see how we can make your life easier. We’re running a sale in that section next month (enter APRIL2019 for 10% off, lasting for the whole month) so make your shopping list out now!
And that’s only two sections done. More to come very soon….
