Yes, this posting is late, too late. It may have saved your day and really provided you with the ultimate Christmas surprise. But I messed this up and posted this much too late. Sorry! However, just imagine a world (comimg soon) where everyone has a 3D printer at their home. Then you actually could DO this now in time for Christmas Eve what now you only can do for the next year ….
Anyhow, this is what you could have done in time for this Christmas:
Tons of goods are being personalized this Christmas. While there are many companies do personalized gifts, JuJups is taking this to the extreme – a personalized gift of the person itself! JuJups, a Singapore based user manufacturing workshop, launched a new "Print your self into an angel" product. On their website, you can upload your portrait photo of your family and friends (and even yourself) which then be printed as cute figurine ornament. JuJups' on demand figurine ornaments are made as you order with special 3D printing technology. Currently JuJups has an Angel, Santa and Elf figurine.
JuJups is a rapidly growing online co-creation platform that connects prosumers, content owners and manufacturing companies globally, to serve customers locally.
