Staples has partnered with 3D Systems to offer 3D printing services. Two stores in New York and Los Angeles are the first to offer the service. The experience includes a booth (pictured above) where people can their likeness and create a personalized figurine. Consumers and small business owners can also use the printers to create products in the store. Customers can also bring in their own 3D print-ready files to use with the 3D printers.

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