The Shapeways Money Pig piggy bank is a collaborative effort between designer Maartje (Shapeways' Customer Service Maartje), Vijay Paul of Dot San, who developed the prototype, and Shapeways 3D printing.

Individuals can uploaded photos or other images to personalize the Shapeways Money Pig with an image on its backside or the whole body. It seems that the only way to get money out of the money pig is to break it and that's a pitty for such a pretty piggy! Stats for Personal Piggy Banks Trending: Older & Mild
