A customized phone case is one of the more profitable and most requested items at present. Phone cases are a must-have accessory for almost all smartphone owners. Buying motives are heterogeneous. Some purchase for protection and practical use. Others buy the product to quench their personal style. Those who go for a customized phone case generally belongs to the latter group.
You should design and make phone cases only if that particular phone model sells well. The cases are light and thin. The material used to make the cases is poly carbonate plastic. The phone screen remains uncovered, but the back and the sides are encased, thus protecting the unit from scratches and falls. Holes in the case must be aligned with phone buttons. Do note that a typical phone cover have certain tolerances towards force of damage. Exceeding such tolerances could harm the phone if such a condition comes.
Printing the case
The graphics must be approved prior to printing. The customer must approve them. The print operator must make sure that the printer should not have any dust or lint. The underbase is white and the top coat must be colored. They are printed at the same time utilizing UV printing technology. Upon completion of print, the cases are wrapped in their poly bubbles and then shipped out to customers.
Printing done by UV method dries ink via a photochemical reaction. Ultraviolet lights of high density are utilized to dry or cure the inks. It turns them from their liquid state to solid one. This printing method could be used to print images on metal, plastic or wood.
Using transparent colors
A few customers may ask for transparent colors. To print these, some considerations must be kept in mind. You should not print elements which have both transparent elements and opaque elements. This is due to sold color contrasting with the transparent colors and giving the overall look a stark effect. The end result, in few cases, may look as there are gaps in the design. It may seem that colors were not printed as they should. This phenomena is specially noticeable in the lighter and white tones. It follows that one must be extra vigilant while printing those colors.
Do know that opaque and transparent colors appear vastly different. When you Photoshop the transparent colors, the process has a name: opacity. Zero percent opaque is 100 percent transparency. The opposite also apply.
