The Razor Maker service has been launched by Gillette as a new service for consumers that will offer them a way to get their hands on a customized razor handle that suits their style and design preferences seamlessly.
The service works by having consumers visit the design website and digitally create a handle that suits their needs; the handle is then 3D-printed at the brand's headquarters before being shipped off the consumer within three weeks. The handles are all designed for compatibility with Gillette razor cartridges to make them a highly functional option for consumers to choose.
The Razor Maker service crafts the razor handles using stereolithography (SLA) printing technology that is made possible thanks to Formlab and are sure to be a hit amongst male consumers craving the next level of personalization.
