Our highest priority is developing great relationships with our clients and as such we try to keep our pricing as transparent as possible. If what we are offering doesn't suit your budget or you have any questions about our costing, please email us and we will do our best to meet your needs.

3D Printing Service
Our 3D printing service is priced as whichever of these is the highest:
Total printing time at £1 per hour plus material costs, and 50% extra per colour change if required.
Why do we use a flat rate?
Every 3D print requires alignment and file preparation; it doesn't matter if your print is 20mm or 150mm wide. In addition, nearly all prints will need 'post-production' finishing such as removing 'supports' from the body of the print. All prints demand some level of observation or intervention to ensure a quality finish.
We do not price our service by 'small', 'medium' or 'large' sizings. In our experience, the most cost effective solutions for our clients only charge where necessary.
Our Branding and Merchandising offer is based on combined pricing for the 3D Design and 3D Printing service.
As such, when you use Billson Buff to produce and deliver your branding and merchandising material, we will do our best to consolidate our costs into the most cost effective package we can.
For example, if you order 200 keyrings (20mm x 60mm x 5mm) that are custom branded with a logo or image of your choice, we will waive the half day design fee and include this in the cost of printing.
The best prices can be agreed upon quotation so please get in touch- everyone client has different needs beyond the scope of this pricing guide.
