Tinkerine and FutureBook Yearbooks Partner to Offer 3D Printing Incentives to North American Schools
Old-fashioned tradition and high-tech new technology meet at the top, with two Canadian companies shaking hands in a partnership meant to continue bringing all of their products to education, offering both fun and inspiration to the experience of the school year for everyone involved.
While Canada’s Tinkerine Studios and FutureBook Yearbooks offer very different services for schools, it’s a perfect match for the two companies from the Great White North, bringing together the country’s leader for integrating 3D printing in schools with one of the fastest growing yearbook company.
As schools purchase yearbooks and raise enthusiasm for ordering amongst the students and faculty, they receive rewards from FutureBook, who will now be featuring rewards in the form of monetary allowances, with Tinkerine’s Ditto Pro out front and center for the schools to work into their curriculum.
Robust construction is key for constant use in an educational setting, and that’s one of Ditto Pro’s key features along with a professional-grade performance and quality, ‘massive build volume’ (8.7 x 6.5 x 8.7 in) and superior speed—all of which should have students proudly listing 3D printing skills as a banner on their resumes as they have the chance to learn on quality equipment.
The Ditto pro is quiet, and that’s another great fit for the educational system, along with being extremely user-friendly for the novice. Students and teachers also have the benefit of using the newest technology in 3D printing with the Ditto Pro’s removable build plate and the quick-swap extruder.
Tinkerine has been on an unwavering mission to get 3D printing into schools. Cementing a relationship with FutureBook certainly seems like a positive, strategic move which benefits all as everyone in the school environment gains exposure to the the innovations Tinkerine has to offer, along with their dedicated customer service.
“FutureBook Yearbooks believes in inspiring, educating, and empowering students. By partnering with Tinkerine, our mission grows. We are thrilled about this relationship and know that together, our customers will experience boundless creativity, innovation, and excitement,” said FutureBook Yearbooks CEO Reid Felske.
FutureBook, one of the leading providers of yearbooks throughout North America is growing rapidly as they continue to accelerate their offerings to educational systems with products such as the ProofBook, MovieBook, and GradBox, with awards offering a fun experience—with ‘memorable’ being the key to their success year after year. Their yearbooks are a lot different than most of us can remember, functioning as beautiful coffee-table books. They are also the ‘the world’s greenest yearbooks,’ with use of soy, water, and recycled products. The eco-friendly yearbooks feature professional, heavy grade stock paper, fold-outs, and many contemporary design features.
“FutureBook Yearbooks is a value added partner that has a significant and expanding footprint in the North American education market. Their focus is highly relevant and complements our vision of educating and training teachers and students about the use and benefits of 3D printing technology,” said Tinkerine CEO Eugene Suyu.
