It looks like Staples is about to offer its US-based consumers the option to print products on-demand, and on-site using 3D printers. The retailer will offer action figures and personalized Starfleet officers to walk-in consumers.

Staples has added that it wants to get the attention of small businesses with its new 3D printing venture. Consumers on the other hand will have access to up to seven different printers and six differing types of materials in-store, including the Cube and Cube X models that Staples already offers. The larger goods will be handed over to 3D Systems, which is the company who printed a 3D-printed guitar.

The retailer will also be offering up trained graphic design consultants, where they'll help consumers model their vision to reality. At the moment, there is no ETA on when Staples will be rolling this out, but it shouldn't be too far away now.
