Not sure what to get someone for the holidays? Well if you want a personal touch we have some ideas for great gifts that will bring a smile to anyone’s face this season!
First up let’s try something new this season! If you’ve got someone that is hard to clothes shop for why not try our new custom t-shirt printer. We can order sizes adult small all the way to an adult 4XL in 13 different colors. This printer can do full color prints on any of the colors giving you full creative freedom to print any image you can find. Most shirts are also going to cost less than $10.00 to make!
If clothing isn’t their thing maybe they’re into model railroads or tabletop gaming. For these folks we have our new Form3 3D printer that can print even the smallest of pieces with the finest detail. These pieces can be painted to suit your purpose and don’t need expensive paints, regular old acrylic paints will do. At $0.15 per mL most pieces can be printed for less than $5.00.
We also still have our laser engravers so you can customize anything from cutting boards to glassware. Patrons will need to bring in their own supplies to engrave. The library only charges for the protective tape which is only $0.10 per foot to use making engraving one of the cheapest processes we have.
You can also use our embroidery machine to customize things like towels and other household fabrics. We have a wide assortment of colors and most embroidery work can be completed for less than $0.25.
For any of this equipment patrons will need to set up an appointment to be trained on the machine that they want to use using this link here. Once you’ve been trained you can use this link here, to reserve the equipment in blocks of up to 2 hours. If you have any questions please feel free to call the STREAM Center at 859-962-4331!
