emojis2Like them or not – and let’s face it – most of us do – Emojis have become an integral part of our lives. Those little head-y creatures that help us express or define our emotions in what seems to be a gazillion ways, are always just a click away. Yes, they can be annoying and sure, sometimes you find yourself cursing at the little face and then realize that the joke really is on you, but the fact remains; they’re here and they’re here to stay.

Now, how about the idea of having the little sad/happy/silly/angry faces at your reach but not solely via your mobile device? Cool, right?
Brace yourselves because, not only are they available, they’re even cuter and more impossible to resist than the digital kind. Enter 3D printed Emojis, a perfect office desk buddy, bookshelf addition, conversation starter, funky gift for a loved one (or yourself for that matter), and, according to their makers at Good Custom Goods, your solution to the ever-present dilemma of what to buy for the man or woman who has everything.

The folks at New York City’s Good Custom Goods use digital fabrication techniques, including 3D printing and laser cutting,  to create not only these irresistible little dudes (yes, this includes Mr. Poo), but also 3D printed iPhone cases for iPhone 5s with NYC neighborhoods etched onto them. The force of awesomeness is pretty strong with these guys, it must be said. The fact that they use sustainable manufacturing processes that produce little to no waste and produce their stuff locally in Brooklyn, eliminating the need for outside shipping of resources, makes everything even more – see the 3D printed Emjoji below.

The 3D printed buddies-in-waiting are great on a few levels, according to Good Custom Goods. They’re hollow and lightweight, fit in the palm of your hand, are vibrant and full of color and have a coarse texture and a delicate finish. You can purchase a single one, collect them, or go wild and get the whole set, which would, essentially, cover all the emotions you or the person you’re getting the little treasures for, could ever conjure up, and then some. They’re priced at $19.99 each or $300.00 for the set of sixteen custom 3D printed Emojis.

If you’re into trying to whip up a 3D Emoji or two yourself, you can check out the DIY video below, brought to you by 3D NYC Lab, for the how-to.  Regardless of what you choose, we hope your world is full of smiling Emojis. And if a Mr. Poo enters it at some point, let it be of the good kind.
