Refusing to be left behind in a world that's slowly saying goodbye to snail mail, the British national postal service is teaming up with iMakr to offer a unique 3D printing service. Although 3D printing has become a household term, there are plenty of people who have yet to see a 3D printer, or even a 3D-printed object with their own eyes.

Since 3D printers and the equipment to run them can be expensive, this Royal Mail partnership has the potential to make 3D printing much more accessible to the masses. As of now, the collection of 3D-printed goods offered for sale on the Royal Mail's web shop includes whimsical stamp-shaped magnets, pencil containers that resemble postboxes, wine coolers, pen holders, phone cases and customized accessories.
