Turn on your printer and get ready to print fun! Yes, it’s that time again – Faberdashery are launching a delicious new set of colours for Summer. And delicious is certainly what they are!

Inspired by candy flavours our pastel collection is pure, unadulterated printing fun. We’ve covered all the pastel shades from refreshing sky blue to warm buttery buff. So now with our original pastel pink – Cherry Blossom Pink – we have six terrific shades of pastel.

The five new colours to play with are: Peppermint Cream, Bubblegum BlueSugar PlumPistachio Pie and Vanilla Milk.

But that is not all! To celebrate the launch of our new range we created a set of beautiful, 3D printable containers available for download on Thingiverse and YouMagine. Each reflect bold shapes and patterns found in nature and are the perfect complement to our luscious pastels. There are three designs to enjoy: the Cactus Cup, the Ripple Bowl and the Armadillo Dish. The combination of these strong geometric designs with our fun new candy colours makes for some stunning prints.

Drum roll please ~ It’s time to release our new Super Secret Crackers!

Last Christmas we designed a set of gorgeous 3D printable decorations. This year, to celebrate the season of sharing, we’ve created three extra special designs that join our 2013 Super Secret Cracker collection. As before, the crackers print with a hidden gift inside that’s only revealed when you snap the cracker in half. We think these are our best designs yet. Can you guess what’s in the crackers? No peeking now…
