NEW YORK, Sept. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3Doodler, the creators of the world’s first 3D printing pen, today celebrated selling its one millionth pen. Already known as one of Kickstarter’s most celebrated success stories with more than $4 million raised over three separate campaigns, 3Doodler has transcended its crowdfunding origins. Its products are now sold in 60 countries around the world through hundreds of retail partners, and the company boasts over $20 million a year in revenue.

“Back when our workshop 3D printer made a mistake in 2012, and we made that fateful decision to remove the printer head to fix the object, I’d never dreamed this would have had such a dramatic impact on the world,” said Max Bogue, CEO and founder of 3Doodler. “As we ship our one millionth pen, what’s most exciting to me isn’t just the strength and rate of adoption, but how we’re continuing to innovate and expand this new category to make creativity more accessible to everyone.”
Since launch, 3Doodler has become part of everyday consciousness, to the point of a reference on the culturally iconic TV show, The Simpsons. 3Doodler has established itself as a great partner for Hollywood, signing licensing deals with the likes of 20th Century Fox, CBS and Cartoon Network to create limited edition pen sets to drive deeper engagement among fans.
Alongside 3Doodler’s increasingly popular licensed sets, the company continues to focus on supporting education. To support learning through play, 3Doodler has launched special themed kids sets, including the 3Doodler Start Robotics Pen Set and Activity Kit that allows children to design and build their own unique robots that actually move. To thank existing customers who’ve helped them reach the one millionth pen milestone, 3Doodler is offering price reductions across its Create Plastics range and free shipping on Education Bundles.
In classrooms around the world, 3Doodler is already used by more than 3,000 educators, with teachers using 3Doodler to inspire creativity and add a new dimension to the teaching of arts, design and technical skills, bringing STEM subjects to life for students. To celebrate the one millionth pen sale, 3Doodler will be offering free shipping on all EDU bundles to help more teachers around the world get themselves and their students involved in doodling.
Beyond mainstream education, 3Doodler was proud to recently receive the official seal of approval for the 3Doodler Start from the Royal National Institute for the Blind, the UK charity, who affirmed it as “easy-to-use” for those who are blind or partially sighted. Accessibility-related updates made to the 3Doodler Start were rolled out globally, enabling people with sight loss to “see” what they draw for the very first time. 3Doodler is now working with organizations in the U.S. to continue removing barriers to creativity for individuals with a range of other disabilities.
“As we cross the one million milestone, we’re not slowing down,” said Daniel Cowen, President of 3Doodler. “We envision a world where every person, no matter their age or abilities, can unlock their creativity and bring their imagination into reality with the 3Doodler. Sometime it’s hard to remember that 3Doodler has been around for only four years with everything that we have already achieved. I can’t wait to bring our plans into reality for the next four years, and beyond.”
