The Beginnings

For the Love of 3D Printing

For the Love of 3D Printing

We opened the shop because we are 3D Printsmen at heart.  Constantly pushing the limits of what 3D printing can do and how it can change our lives.  We love all the aspects of 3D printing so we decided to make a shop where we can delve into it all on a daily basis.

Our web-store and showroom is an extension of our dedication to the craft.  We’ve surrounded ourselves with the tools we need to pursue the art we desire. A true Printsmen workshop and an opportunity for us to show Canada what our passion is all about.  Drop in to chat or to browse, you are always welcome.

F.A.Q.s uses flat rate shipping to subsidize shipping costs to you.  3D printers are a heavy item and we have arranged specialized 3D printer insurance policy with our carriers so while the shipping costs are high, our customers are fully protected no “ifs and buts”.  We cap the costs to you depending on the weight class of the printer you purchased and we subsidize all shipping and insurance costs beyond the flat rate.  All 3D printers ship via  UPS Gound/Expedited and the average shipping cost for Large 3D printers with full insurance is around ~$125-200 but we cap it at $90. generally ships all in stock orders out by the next business day.  It gives us time to verify all the shipping and payment details and gives us enough time to package each shipment carefully.  All 3D Printers ship via Purolator Ground/Express or UPS Ground/Expedited.  Usual delivery time is 1-3 days.  Parts and Filament orders will ship out via Canada Post Expedited with usual delivery times around 1-4 days except when purchased with a 3D printer in which case we will ship both packages via Purolator.
