Ah right, you mean pin alignments ? That image looks like it be easier to install than single headers.. but likely more expensive.
that's why being able to print ours would save money.

Header strips are cheap enough I guess, but something which holds them could be printed to aid I guess. Though I just use sockets to hold pins while soldering anyway.
