Inside Splash N Color
Our Story & Mission
Help us create the resurgence of 3D Printing in a radically different way.
Here at Splash N Color we have a big, hairy audacious goal. We want to build the largest, fully automated direct-to-consumer printing farm on the planet.
We believe that the technology exists to make our BHAG a reality, it just takes the right company with the right community and a different way of thinking to pull it off.
This is why we are establishing a wide-ranging catalog of products made of 3d printed materials. To educate and inspire the global community of makers and creators who are committed to bringing unique solutions to our planet through additive manufacturing.
Put simply, we believe in better.
This all started with Andre Oliveira, our founder. He saw first hand the painful defeat of the high barrier to entry that bringing products to market had on young entrepreneurs' spirit while attending the University of Florida in late 2018. Andre had the courage to spend years experimenting with new systems to try and find an alternative to bringing products to market that could be done so with minimal barriers to entry.
”I started Splash N Color when my friend Julio wanted to bring his designs to life during college but was prohibited due to expensive mold costs. This kept me wondering about the impact he could have made in people’s lives through his unique abilities to provide meaningful solutions.
Our mission to create the resurgence of 3d printing in a radically different way starts with making 3d printed products the new normal. By bringing to market our own catalog of products successfully, we validate the concept with tangible and proven results. Our Project Engineer Specialists can then deploy our proprietary systems and processes we have developed over the years to rapidly bring your designs to market through partnership with Splash N Color.

It’s one thing to have a strong mission and purpose, it is another thing entirely to create and nurture the team and community required to make this 3d printing resurgence future a reality.
This is why we created our core values. To help us and our community stay the course.
These are the 3 “C’s” we’ve curated. We hope they mean as much to you as they do to us.
Commit to a culture that builds a vibrant community.
We want to play, have fun, and laugh together. We want to engage in meaningful debate, to have the right conversations so that we can create value for ALL of our stakeholders. We call this ‘taking care of the whole’. Everything we do together must be good for us as individuals, as a team, as a business, for our community and ultimately for our children.
Two quotes that inspire us:
"There are no rules here–we're trying to accomplish something."
"The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers."
Foster creativity to inspire innovation.
Better is born from creativity. The only reason things are the way they are is because other people made it that way. Which means with a little bit of creativity we can make things better.
Embrace courage by taking action despite uncertainty.
To disrupt traditional ways of thinking and challenge the status quo, you need courage. It allows us to accept that we don’t know everything, but we’re willing to learn and try the seemingly impossible.
Meaningful impact is made when you are willing to tackle bold initiatives in which there is a chance of failing. Coming out with a black eye doesn’t mean we are weak, it means we were not afraid to take a shot at something worth doing.
