garageeks-targaNiccolò Gallarati and Davide Viganò are the co-founders of Dublin startup GaraGeeks–the company behind Kickstarter success ClampHero–and they say some market research revealed a bit of a surprise in a lack of companies making business signs with 3D printers.

They were startled to discover that the sign industry works mostly with laser cutters and CNC routers, but they also found that a bit of a niche existed they could exploit.

“We were also happy to hear that people loved the typical 3D printed pattern as they immediately recognized it was different than the usual,” Gallarati says.

So now they offer what they say are the first 3D printed business signs.3dsign_slide_1

“We are working with 3D printers everyday and were looking for new applications,” Gallarati says. “The average business sign made of engraved brass is something that people take for granted. A 3D printed business sign that faithfully reproduces your company logo, with its shapes and colors, changes everything. It adds depth to your image, makes your name memorable and helps standing out from the competition.”

GaraGeeks says the signs are both effective and inexpensive advertisement, and compared to the other possible sign printing techniques, 3D printed parts with their durable ABS plastic construction can withstand the elements and high temperatures.

They add that as the plastic itself is colored, there’s no paint to peel away with the passage of time and the onslaught of weather.business-signs-four

Gallarati and Viganò say the idea was born out of a search for a birthday present for a friend.

“When people started asking him where he bought it, we realized we found a new niche,” Gallarati says. “After an internet search, we discovered nobody was offering this service and, hey presto, we perfected the technique.”

Getting your own 3D printed business sign is as easy as placing an order on their website, choosing the size, the number of foreground colors, and a transparent or white background. Sending them a logo as an image sets the ball rolling, and they can ship a business sign straight to your door, worldwide.

A typical A4-sized–30 x 25 cm, 3 mm thickness–business sign starts at €90, or about $100, while the smaller A5 size–20 x 15 cm, 3 mm thickness–starts at €75. The signs can be installed with an included double-sided adhesive or optional metal fixtures.

You can check out all their prices and offerings at their online shop.
