diy enthusiast, designer, maker... Sofs is actively engaged in the pursuit of making it happen.
I definitely belong to the ‘just do it’ and to the 'diy' movement and I believe that doing is empowering. As such, I am constantly and actively searching for ways to have people engage in 'making' their own and then sharing the joy and passion that resulted from it.
There is something that is so thrilling about taking flat paper and turning it into a really cool 3d object. It doesn't get old!
I would say making 3d paper models requires graphic designing skills, artistic skills as well as construction skills. I would say that because of this combination of skills, its closest to being an industrial or architectural designing domain. This is not necessarly that simple for some but can be so exciting for others.
However, the 'making' part that comes from using our templates, is a simple concept that can be done by almost anybody which is so amazing!
Owner, Designer, Maker
Sofs originated from a need to create and make. I love to work with beautiful earthy materials, colors and patterns as well as mixing old with new, vintage with digital.

Frequently asked questions
What size paper can I use?
The templates/patterns are designed to fit many sizes of paper. Mainly I use letter size and many use A4. You can easily adjust the size of the template depending on your printer/paper.
Do I need a fancy technical printer?
No, you can use a simple home printer. As well, you really only need black ink since the color of the paper is what determines your final color sculpture.
What kind of paper should I use?
We mainly use 67 lbs paper (called cardstock) Sometimes for bigger models we will use 100 lbs but it can be a little bit harder to work with. It does not need to be complicated or expensive paper. It can even be regular color paper. The ticker the paper the stronger your sculpture will be.
Can I use the template for commercial use?
You can make the sculpture/model and sell it or use it as a piece in your commercial projects.
However the purchase is for individual usages. If you require a commercial license to use our models for multiple usage in schools and/or businesses, I will be glad to make a separate listing for you.
My prices are very reasonable and I am open to partnerships. Please contact me for more information. Thanks
