I'd been frustrated by the cheap plastic stiffeners that come with most dress shirts, so I bought some metal ones with a gold color finish, but these still can get lost, are pricey, etc. and I have more shirts than I'd prefer to buy gold collar stays for... so why not print a few of my own?

After a few quick iterations I've made a stay with the rounded edges, tapered front and is a bit longer (.3mm) than the typical size and a good deal thicker at 1.6mm. (a four-layer print for my printrbot) This gives me the right amount of rigidity at a fraction of the price.
