logo-grey-text-fullThere are people who shop at Target, and there are people who shop at Macy’s. I’m generally a Target shopper myself, but I appreciate the quality of the products offered by higher-end retailers for those who can afford them. Now online 3D printing services are beginning to distinguish themselves by the quality of their products. You may recall Formsfield, the online 3D printing service that launched in September of this year. Formsfield immediately set out to distinguish itself as the Macy’s of 3D printed goods, if you will, though with much lower prices. Declaring themselves to be classier than “the typical mix of 3D printed trinkets that people often find online,” Formsfield does indeed offer some high-quality, aesthetically pleasing art, accessories and home goods, from art deco-looking vases to 3D puzzle cubes.

To consistently produce quality items, however, you need a large base of quality designers. To attract new talent, Formsfield is offering a “sales guarantee” promotion from November 10-24 for designers who may be considering submitting their work to the site. A designer who submits a design within the two week period of the promotion is promised that if the design doesn’t sell, Formsfield will pay them the price of the item up to €10. Customers will also benefit from the promotion, as the still relatively small selection of goods on the site is expected to expand from the influx of first-time designers.

“We’re excited about this promotion because it will give us the opportunity to attract and build strong partnerships with talented designers,” said Formsfield Founder and CEO Oskar Lis. “It’s also a great way to provide our customers with a wider assortment of stylish household products.”

cube1Formsfield, which is based in Poland with plans to move its offices to Silicon Valley, only recently began to ship its products internationally. Customers are given the option to purchase items as files streamed directly to their 3D printer. For those who don’t own a printer, the company will print and ship the item for about €10 more, which is a pretty small fee compared to what some sites charge for pre-printed items. Their promotional call for submissions promises that designers who submit their work will receive a response from the company within 48 hours, as long as the design meets the company’s standards of quality and presentation and fits within one of Formsfield’s three established categories (home, accessories and art).

“We look forward to working with designers to showcase their amazing work,” said Lis, “as well as creating a shopping experience that benefits designers and consumers alike.”

Interested in taking advantage of this promotional period? You can submit your designs here, and find out if you make the cut as a classy and sophisticated designer according to Formsfield’s style standards.
