    Well this is an interesting one, not to sure how I feel about that grip... but an interesting concept for sure. :)

      Good Question CM!

      In general most of the prints are coloured in the material (black, white, grey, transparent). SLS prints (like this PenPouch) is basically white. Dyed afterwards in a few colours.

      If you or someone wants a different color than the 3Dservice offer:

      I can make it by myself but since it has to be shipped to me and then to you or someone it's not a cheap idea. So the best if someone make it to him/herself.

      Choose a polished material in a color that could be a good base layer for the overpaint.

      Use quick dry acrylic paint in 4-5 thin layers. The surface is really "sucky". The paint really sticks.

      Paint also helps to get better UV resistance for the material.

      Hope it's a satisfying answer my Friend!

      Cheers, Mark

      The price makes sense. I had wanted to get a slingshot to be 3d printed, the the prototype was going to run me $270.00. The tech is still fairly new. I love the design though @Tremoside. :)
