Get your back to school printer!

back to school printer

September is nearly here, which means that back to school printers, among many other things, will be on the long list of things to get organised as soon as possible.

As well as the kids are going back to school, there’s also students heading off for another year of college or university to consider.  It can be hectic, but make sure that you don’t forget the back to school printer!

After buying a new uniform, bags, pencil cases etc., the last thing you need is them to come home telling you that they’ve already lost them – making a label printer a vital addition to the household.  It’s simple, just get those school jumpers labelled with easy-to-use fabric tape!

University students will be grateful of a label printer in their shared accommodation, too – particularly when it comes to labelling their food in the fridge!  Also, as assignment and projects deadlines start to come up, students will need a reliable, low-cost printer, which will save on last-minute trips to the library.

It’s also the perfect time to grab a colour multifunction printer – maybe even an A3 device? – for those students on design, photography and fashion courses. Here at Printerbase, we have a back to school printer to suit everyone’s needs, so you’re sure to get the right machine before it all starts again for another year!

MakerBot to offer custom 3D printed iPhone cases

3d printed iphone casesMakerBot have announced a brand new 3D printing app, including Fraemes, which gives users the ability to print out fully customisable 3D printed iPhone cases.

Fraemes is the second MakerBot-Ready app to be announced since the MakerBot Developer Program launched in June.

The MakerBot Developer Program aims to provide developers the resources needed to integrate with the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem and to access the growing 3D printing market. The MakerBot Developer Program also includes 3D printing capabilities in desktop, mobile, tablet and console-based apps and games, granting developers unprecedented access to MakerBot Replicator 3D Printing Platform for iOS, Android, Web and more.

“We are excited to partner with Fraemes as one of our approved developers and offer 3D printable, customisable and personalised iPhone cases,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.

“Phone cases are always one of the most popular items to 3D print and now with the MakerBot-Ready App Fraemes, 3D printing customers can easily and simply customise iPhones cases – with no design experience necessary.”

Users who purchase a Fraemes bumper can 3D print and insert as many customized and personalized design “inserts” as they desire.

“When we worked on creating the Fraemes technology, simplicity was our number one goal. We wanted to make it easy for designers and non-designers to design and personalize in 3D,” said Sakunthala Panditharatne, Fraemes’ graphics engineer. “With Fraemes, anyone can now print and carry around their own completely original piece of art, and change it up whenever they want.”

How does the app work? 

First, users connect their MakerBot account at and select a design from Fraemes’ collection of professionally designed inserts including cityscapes, pop culture icons and monograms – each customisable with shapes and text. Once the checkout process is complete, users can then 3D print the designs directly from their MakerBot Desktop Library.

“Great printer. First I would like to say how pleased I am with Printerbase, especially Kara, who was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. It is very rare to find staff with such a knowledge of the products they sell. Delivery was also next day and when I rang I was given a one hour time slot in which the printer would be and was delivered. Printer arrived four days ago, easy to set up and print quality was fantastic. Would highly recommend both this printer and Printerbase.” - Steve, Liverpool
