Currently it is possible to have us dye White, Strong & Flexible for you in 3 different colors. We want to continue to innovate so we will be replacing those three colors: Blue Jeans, Terracotta & Limestone with three new ones. This should happen in a month or so. So, you have a month if you would like to order something in those colors. We would like to ask you guys however which colors you would like to try. So what colors do you want as Shapeways next 3? Please take 30 seconds to pick your favorite three colors. The colors you can choose from are shown below. Arnoud is responsible for selecting the pink by the by.
gray is not a priority in my mind, since you guys have the Alumide. Pink is too girly for general use, and could simply be substituted with red in most cases. Orange has always been an awkward color to me, and is thus nixed. This leaves:
If those are the choices,i would rather you not change the colors at all. i like the colors that you have. If anything, I would change the black since it's not a true black. I think ALL your new color choices are all too saturated and intense. the colors you have now are more complex and sophisticated. Maybe it's just the way the samples look, but I can't even pick three that i like. I like the idea of brown or turquoise, even purple might be good, but none of those seems to have made the list.
I agree with Kristopher about the gray. Most items people would want in grey probably will get in in alumide. I also have always associated the color orange with fruit and ugly 90's pants.
Though female, I really don't care for the color pink very much, but from a marketing standpoint there are thousands upon thousands of females who will buy things they don't need just because they're in pink, so unfortunately that's in my top three.
A purple would be nice. Purple is my favorite color. I don't see why you just can't stock more multiple colors and just use them per demand. To keep the menu less cluttered, people could choose "colored" in addition to white or black WSF, then choose their color during checkout.
