This is a complex question that depends heavily on your local market. Contact us to download our 3D Photography Industry Guide to learn about different pricing strategies.

No.  We do not offer financing options at this time.

Do I get any marketing materials?

How much space do I need for a retail installation?

The Twinstant is 10ft (3.05m) in diameter and requires only a small table for the laptop. We recommend a minimum of 10′x15′ (3.05m x 4.57m) space in order to setup the Twinstant Mobile, a small table for the laptop, and still have room for showcasing the 3D printed product in compact display cases.

How should I price my products?

We have made ordering 3D prints as afforable as possible so you can price low and go for volume or price at a premium and still make strong margins. Contact us to download a 3D Photography Industry Guide we have been assembling for more information regarding pricing strategies we have seen work well.
