Create your own 3D printed earrings

Do you find the idea of buying a 3D printer to be cost prohibitive? Perhaps next year there will be several affordable models to choose from, but in the meantime, you can still own 3D printed goods without the hefty initial investment. Amazon today announced the launch of its 3D Printed Products store where you can order over 200 unique print-on-demand items that you can customize to your liking.

Many of the items available to print and purchase can be customized by material, size, styles, and color variations. Some will even let you personalize a text and/or image imprint. According to Amazon, it's the largest online place to sift through 3D printed products with search tools, interactive 3D preview functionality, and a personalization widget.

"The introduction of our 3D Printed Products store suggests the beginnings of a shift in online retail - that manufacturing can be more nimble to provide an immersive customer experience. Sellers, in alignment with designers and manufacturers, can offer more dynamic inventory for customers to personalize and truly make their own," said Petra Schindler-Carter , Director for Amazon Marketplace Sales. “The 3D Printed Products store allows us to help sellers, designers and manufacturers reach millions of customers while providing a fun and creative customer experience to personalize a potentially infinite number of products at great prices across many product categories."

There are a wealth of products to browse and customize -- jewelry, cell phone cases, toys, and lots more. Click here to check it out.
