Making Brit + Co SF, Part 3: 3D Printing, The Photo Booth, and More
Next up in our recap of our first ever pop-up shop, we turn the techier side of Brit + Co SF. In addition to painting, wrapping, and tagging up a storm, we also had all sorts of gadgets at the ready for all of our visitors. With five 3D printers printing all day and all night, a propped out photo booth, and Elf projected on the wall, there was something available for gadget-lovers and DIYers alike.
Of course, so much of the good stuff at our retail shop would not have been possible without help from our favorite brands. Thanks to Minted for sponsoring our photo booth, and to GE for gearing us up on the 3D printing front. Read on for more details!
The Photo Booth: We teamed up with Minted to create a festive photo booth right in our shop. Folks could take photos, and upload them directly to Minted to create quick and easy holiday cards right up to the very last minute.
Of course being us, we couldn’t resist tricking out this photo booth with a little DIY action. We created a suite of printable holiday photo props perfect for taking family photos, selfies, and more. The beard is clearly a favorite.
3D Printing Stations: We had not one, not two, but FIVE 3D printers churning out custom printed goodies all day long. Thanks to GE for helping us make this happen — it’s like a 3D printed Santa’s workshop! :)
We printed a whole bunch of sweet holiday ornaments, and even turned about 40 3D-printed snowflakes into a beautiful floating garland.
Laser Cut Decor + Signage: Our newest digital-meets-analog toy is the very impressive laser cutter. We used it to create our Brit + Co SF sign, as well as a few trees and stags for adorning our walls and shelves.
The tech elements totally topped off the awesomeness of Brit + Co SF — stay tuned for a winter edition of Brit + Co SF in the weeks to come.
