Start a Custom Phone Case Business

A custom phone case business designs, makes and sells custom branded cell phone cases. This is a business that can be run as a sideline – accepting orders via a website, designing and branding the cases after hours and then shipping it off.

The cellphone case industry is massive as it protects a delicate and very expensive item, it is not unheard of for people to spend R200 to R300 on a cell phone case considering cell phones can cost over R10 000. Many people also like to personalise their stuff, this business caters for those type of clients.

A custom phone case also makes a nice and unique gift, the novelty printing business isn’t so novelty anymore, a custom phone case will be better that a photo mug or a sublimation printed tie that the person may never use. It can also be used for company branding purposes or corporate gifts.

In order to start this business you will need a relevant printer, press, tools and of course the blank cases that will be designed. There are places that sell a complete kit with training. But if you’ve done transfer printing before it might be cheaper for you to assemble all the equipment separately.
