The idea of a gift that was truly personal

our idea of the perfect little gift

Based in the UK, Funky3DFaces is a family run business, according to reports we are the only company to offer these unique custom 3D heads printed in full colour.

Whilst our full-colour 3D printers were initially earmarked for another project, we wanted to make something fun and affordable to the masses, so the mission was to produce something that was small enough to be inexpensive but completely unique and personal to each individual and so Funky3DFaces was born.

Trying out different ideas…

So we looked at technology that converted standard 2D photos into 3D, which meant that you could take and send the photos within the comfort of your own home. The first thing we tried was making your face into a 3D fridge magnet, totally cool and totally freaky too!!

The perfect little bespoke gift!

Then the idea hit us. Something that anyone can relate to which would make a great gift, whether you're young or old, whilst being completely unique and fun. Minifigure heads!!!

After 3 months of trial and error with different software and lots of failed attempts, we finally perfected the technique. All we needed now was a platform to launch it at: Comic Con Birmingham 2015.

Having never been to a Comic Con event, we weren't sure how things would go. If you have never been, GO! We had such an amazing weekend. We didn't stop the whole time we were there! Everyone was amazed at the likeness of what we were making, especially when you consider the size of a minifigure head.

OK, so everybody loved it so we decided to create a website and take the product into production, 3 months later we launched the new website and started selling on ETSY. Within 3 days of going live we went viral around the world!!

These heads turned out amazing! I went to the LEGO store, as I live in NYC, picked out lego bodies and accessories. My nephew loved them. Thank you! Fast delivery too!

My nephew loved it and it's pretty spot on to what he looks like. Will definitely be ordering one again for my other nephew who's into Legos.

This is adorable and looks like my nephew. I received 3 hands and one arm so I messaged the seller and he said he can send me a new one since it was costly to send just one arm. Lol He responded very quickly. Great customer service. Thanks!
