3D Printed Slug Friends: How did we get here???
In early 2021, I was in the process of starting my 3D printing small business, but when my slug TikTok blew up, I ended up launching my business early with a silly product I never could have predicted would blow up. The slugs were designed by Isaiah S. and published on Thingiverse. When the TikTok video of my slug blew up, I reached out to see if he would let me sell them, AND HE SAID YES! (Thanks, Isaiah!)
And #SlugTok was born! The first round of slugs sold out in less than 45 minutes, and allowed me to buy a few new 3D printers, which will help me restock faster and expand my business more quickly than I anticipated. Since then, every restock has sold out faster and faster and I can't believe the slug craze is STILL going strong!
The price might seem high for a little plastic toy, but each slug friend takes about 10 hours to print.
Thank you so, so much for your support & helping me fulfill my dream of having my own 3D printing company. I didn't think it would start out with cute little slugs, but I am so excited for everyone to have their very own adorable slug friend.
Looking forward to launching more products soon!!
