It’s said that when you’re starting a business one of the first things you ought to do is find your niche. That’s something which our latest Startup of the Week has done, without question.
Styleshapes is an online platform and community dedicated solely to 3D printed jewellery, design and fashion.
If you’re a designer you can use the site to showcase your 3D designs and help you and your products get that extra bit of well needed exposure.
When you submit a design, you can add photos, 3D models, a link to your website and also written descriptions about your creations. You also have the option to add single submissions or bulk submissions if you’re a more prolific designer.
As a potential buyer, the site is pretty easy to navigate and browse around and of course perfect if you’re looking for something a tad unusual or unique.
Since 3D printing is here to stay, it’s likely that there will be more and more niche platforms and marketplaces like Styleshapes. You’ve got to hand it to these guys though - for being ahead of the game. Also, any startup which aims to give other startups a helping hand is fine by us!
