Shapeways is the probably the most expensive.
I used Weerg.com (Italy), I.Materialise.com (Belgium) and JLCPCB (China) with satisfactory results for MJF PA12 prints. The best is to do quotes and review design to see how to optimize the cost. For some it is better to work with a bounding box or with a cluster in order to print multiple parts together to reduce the cost. They are not all working and costing the same way, and it is good to have a look at their design information to see what you can do and what you can't...

When it comes to third-party printing services, there are several options available, each with its own strengths and specialties. While it ultimately depends on your specific printing needs, I can provide you with a few well-regarded services that many people have had positive experiences with:

1. Printful: Known for its print-on-demand services, Printful offers a wide range of customizable products, including apparel, accessories, and home decor.

2. Shutterfly: A popular choice for personalized photo products, Shutterfly offers high-quality printing for items like photo books, cards, calendars, and wall art.

3. Moo: If you're looking for professional-grade business cards and promotional materials, Moo is known for its premium print quality and design options.

4. Vistaprint: A well-established printing service, Vistaprint offers a variety of customizable products, such as business cards, marketing materials, signage, and apparel.

Remember to consider factors such as pricing, turnaround time, shipping options, and customer reviews when choosing a printing service that best suits your needs. It's also beneficial to explore the specific offerings and capabilities of each service to ensure they align with your printing requirements.

ummmm - 3D printing, not stationary printing.

Remember to consider the topic when you ask AI for an answer.
