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.

Opportunity
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.

Requirements
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.
