I try to stay on top of custom, print-on-demand options available on the web...
Shapeways, LuLu, e-Patches, etc...

But someone stumped me yesterday and I am hoping my extended, creative family called Shapways Community might have an answer.

Someone I know wants to create a custom silicone bracelet design ( think the livestrong bracelets ) but rather than order and sell from his house, he wants to create the design, add a profit amount and send people the link.

At first I thought that Shapeways would be perfect... I THOUGHT I had remembered a silicone bracelet looking development years ago, but now I can't find anything like it.

Anyone got an idea? Either here at Shapeways or somewhere else?

Welcome to Costco, I love you.

Shapeways tested a flexible material, but it suffered from several issues:
- thick walls
- poor color adherance
- colors would wear off
- inconsistent print quality

They offered to bring it back when the technology catches up.
