Our goal at Shapeways is to make 3D printing more accessible and affordable. So we’re excited to share that starting today, customers in the US can now have products delivered by United States Postal Service First-Class for a flat rate of $4.99, with expected transit time of 1-3 business days.
This is a faster, cheaper option that will hopefully make 3D printing even more affordable, whether you’re prototyping or getting a gift for a loved one. USPS also offers some unique benefits, including delivery to PO Boxes or to properties where entrance by private carriers is limited or prohibited. You’ll be able to track your package and gleefully watch as it leaves our NYC factory and make its way to your front door.
