What is Maker Box?

Maker Box is the low cost solution to trying new 3D printer filament. Active members will receive great discounts on the month's featured filament as well as 10% off most in-store items!


We reach out to manufacturers of 3D printing accessories and other related products to get exclusive discounts for our Maker Box subscribers. Past discounts have included hardened nozzles, commercial build plates, and upgraded extruders.

What is inside each box? How much can I print?

At Maker Box, we measure our filament samples based on length instead of weight. The reason for this is some filaments are more dense than others, so for the same weight customers receive less printing capacity. By measuring the length customers receive the same printing capacity for all samples. Customers receive roughly 16.5 meters of 1.75mm or 5 meters of 2.85/3.00mm filament. This equats to roughly 50 grams of an ABS based filament.


Customers with a monthly subscription receive 4 individual samples of the same length. Each sample comes sealed in its own airtight bag with a silica gel packet to keep it fresh for when it arrives at the customer's door. In addition a label is adhered to the outside of the sample bag with recommended print settings to get you printing right out of the box.


Customers with a bi-monthly subscription will receive the same, except with 2 months' worth of samples, for a total of 8 samples.


If you would like to submit or recommend a material to Maker Box for testing and consideration for a future box please contact us via email: [email protected]

When do you ship and when will I receive my box?

We do our best to get the boxes mailed out around the 25th of every month. For example, January's box will mail out around the 25th of January. Understand that the coiling and packaging process is very demanding and a lot of hard work goes into making sure the final product is of high quality for all of our customers.


Please be patient and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about the status of your box. Our customers are always our number one priority and we are here to provide them with a stress-free experience.

How does billing work?

Our monthly customers' subscriptions are re-billed on the 10th of each month and on the 5th of every other month for our bi-monthly customers.


To make it into the current month's mailing list, one must subscribe before the countdown, seen on the top of each page, expires.


If you need help cancelling or modifying your subscription, feel free to contact us at any time.

How much does it cost?

We offer two main Maker Box subscriptions for our customers. Our monthly option is just $19 a month, plus shipping. This includes 4 individual samples of the same length and is mailed out once a month.


Our bi-monthly option is $38, plus shipping, and is billed every other month. This option is catered towards our international customers to help reduce the cost of shipping. The bi-monthly box is mailed out every other month and contains 2 months' worth of samples, for a total of 8 filament samples.


Please check price of shipping at check-out as shipping rates are due to change with carrier rates. Additional shipping costs varies from country to country.


Cancel anytime as long as your box hasn't been packaged. No questions asked.


International customers may have to pay import taxes in order to receive their box. Please check with your local laws and regulations before purchasing.
