FRAMINGHAM, Mass., April 12, 2014 (Korea Bizwire) – Staples, Inc. announced on April 11 that its partnership with 3D  Systems, a leader in 3D content-to-print solutions, to  pilot 3D  printing services in two stores in New  York City and Los  Angeles.

Each store features an immersive 3D printing experience center that lets  consumers and small businesses create personalized products and use 3D  printing hardware. Customers can also bring in their own 3D print-ready  files to have them printed.

“3D printing offers enormous potential for small businesses, and by  using Staples, they can print with the technology without having to  invest in it,” said Damien Leigh, senior vice president of business  services for Staples, Inc.

“The test with 3D Systems will help us learn  about our customers’ needs for a local 3D printing service, and how  Staples can help them make more happen for their business through 3D  printing.”

“Staples established reputation as a leader in home office and small  business solutions makes them an ideal partner for testing out live,  consumer-facing 3D print services,” said Rajeev Kulkarni, 3D Systems’  vice president and general manager, for consumer products division.

“We  have been thrilled with the retail experience and response from our  audience, and the difference it makes being able to see, touch and  experience 3D printing.”

With the new experience centers, both small businesses and consumers are  able to learn more about 3D printing through demonstration areas where  they can use design software and see 3D Systems printers in action.

Each  store will have a photo booth to capture customers’ facial images for  the purpose of personalizing 3D products like figurines, and customers  can also print personalized smart phone cases.

Each store has an expert from 3D Systems on-site, along with trained  Copy & Print associates to help guide customers on their 3D printing  journey. The items will be printed on site or through 3D Systems and  shipped directly to their offices or home.

Staples previously announced in May of 2013 that it would be the first  major U.S. retailer to carry 3D printers, with the launch of the Cube®  from 3D Systems on The company has since rolled out 3D  printing hardware and accessories in a limited number of stores, and  expanded its overall product selection.
