Hi There. We are Quinn Goods. Our company consists of a family of video game enthusiasts. We have a group of members that have unique abilities and the love of creation. We started creating video game weapons for Birthday and special occasions because there really wasn't a market of products available for that. We got really good at what we were creating so we tested it on smaller market places and the demand blew up and we grew to what we are today. Now we operate a shop of many 3d printer and art supplies running at full time, every day to be able to produce highly detailed video game props within days of purchase. We like to give back and share info and dyi strategies as we come across the scenarios and challenges ourselves. With as many 3d printers we have running every day we have a ton of troubleshooting and creation tips to share. We've created a lot of different cosplay type props and accessories so that's another area we'd like to share some info in. We'll see what we can contribute. If we can help we are all in with this blog.
