What do you do?
We are an ABS (and soon to be PLA) filament manufacturer for the 3D printing market. Gateway3DPrint.com is an online business unit of Gateway Bookbinding Systems Ltd.
Gateway is also the manufacturer of the widely recognized brand PLASTIKOIL®. Founded in 1965, Gateway has almost 50 years of experience in the print and finishing industry. Gateway also designs and builds equipment for plastic spiral binding.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
The 3D printing industry is almost limitless in its possibilities and applications. It is difficult to say which opportunity is the biggest but we’re looking to supply a high quality raw material to the “makers” of the world – whether they’re making toys, jewelry, auto parts or prototypes.

What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
One sector that really gets us excited is seeing our filaments used to fabricate prosthetics. Truly custom parts for people with unique needs. As acceptance grows for 3D printing and it becomes more and more commonplace, people in need are going to have options available to them that no generation before could have imagined.
What is your biggest goal right now?
It is our goal to become a premier supplier of quality ABS (and PLA) filament and for our site to become a hub for makers to not only source our filament but to share ideas and help one another achieve success in their various applications.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
We see the 3D printing industry as the ultimate in “crowd-sourced” knowledge. It is an open and inclusive industry that allows freedom to the user like nothing else before it. What we need now and always, is the feedback of our customers. How can we improve our product, which settings were most successful, what products are you looking for and at what price does it need to be? Knowing the answers to these questions and acting upon them will drive our success for years to come.
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
Gateway has an extensive offering of 16 ABS colors in both 1.75mm and 2.85mm filament diameters that are available in both 250 g and 750 g spool sizes.
Unlike many on-line retailers that simply put up a website and drop ship products from other vendors – Gateway3DPrint.com has a real brick and mortar location with an on-staff team of experts ready to assist in any way possible.
