Staples Begins Offering 3D Printing Service In Stores - | Competitive Edge |

We all knew it was bound to happen. Staples for the last year has been selling 3D printers within many of their stores here in the United States, but today they have begun offering 3D printing services within two of there U.S. locations; one in New York City, and the other in Los Angeles. This is not a first for Staples, who last year introduced 3D printing services at stores located in Europe.

Anyone can stroll into these two locations and print out an almost infinite number of items, of course for a fee. Staples hasn’t announced the exact pricing model they will be using, but the the pricing will range from a few bucks to potentially thousands of dollars for larger, more complicated items. Most of the items will be printed in the stores, however some of the bigger items will be done in partnership with 3D Systems, who will ship the printed products once complete. The decision to go with just two store locations, in two very high trafficked areas is part of a pilot program, that if it takes off, could expand to numerous other stores around the nation.
