Selftraits takes portrait photography to the third dimension
Get ready for your next obsession. Traditional portrait photography has reached a new level of fabulous fad – it’s time to get a 3D-printed (and astonishingly lifelike) keepsake model of you, the kids, the family dog, or even your entire office!
Selftraits has taken our selfie-fascinated culture into the third dimension. Call it a wacky novelty or the finest art, it’s the kind of thing you don’t know you need until you see it.
Pose and Personality
Part of the secret to capturing not only dynamic pose but also personality lies in the Selftraits photo booth. Built in house and outfitted with more than 130 cameras, the unit grabs images from that many angles instantaneously. Images are digitally stitched together to get a 3D rendering, which is tidied up by graphic artists and sent to a 3D printer. After finishing, the model is ready for pick up or shipping, usually in about a week.
Pricing starts at $120 + tax for a 5-inch tall model. Prices rise with model size and complexity, limited only by your imagination. Selftraits is located at 545 Queen St. West (between Bathurst and Spadina). Book in advance or drop in. For more information, including hours of operation, visit selftraits.com or call 416.966.2539.
Selftraits launched on July 1st 2015, as a subsidiary Objex Unlimited, an established Canadian 3D printing company. Originally located at 321 Davenport rd., Selftraits was conceived as a consumer friendly and fun way to immerse the general public into the world of 3D printing.
Through our #projexselfie initiative, we have been able to promote local charities, as well as donate a portion of our sales to their respective cause. Over the course of our #projexselfie campaigns, we have raised and donated more than $10,000 to various charities across the GTA!
Since Selftraits moved locations to 545 Queen St. West in November of 2015, we have seen our customer and fan base spread across all ages, demographics and nationalities! From scanning children, to entire offices, more people are finding fun and creative ways to use our services. The best part about working here is seeing our customer’s react to their model for the first time and we cannot wait to share this amazing product with even more people moving forward!
