Is it hard to do your own brand/designs mobile phone cases? From my 8 years trading wholesale phone cases experience. Let’s discuss.
Well, if you make sure your phone case will sell good and your have enough money. Then you can choose to design your own phone case.
For example the hybrid shockproof defender phone case, TPU case waterproof phone case. If you don’t want to sell those already can be found in market. Then you can design for yourself. For example, the below metal aluminum Iphone 13pro shockproof phone case, with kickstand function,it’s mould fees about $3200. Making a mould needs about 45-60 days.
But firstly, you need to have designer to design for you. Then you have to pay for the mould fees. And then you will need MOQ 20,000pcs at least each model. In this way, you can have your own phone case. The factory will only produce this case for you.
But, every year new phones released. This means, you will have to pay for mould fees for each model. And high MOQ for each model. So, if you are not confident your sales and don’t have enough money. Better don’t choose this way.
If you don’t have designers. There is also another way. Mobile phone cases factories have their own designers, and they have rich experience on the phone cases designs. Factories will design some phone cases and show clients. If you can reach their MOQ each month, they will only provide that design phone case to you. This is the so called exclusive selling rights.
If you don’t have enough money, neither can reach the MOQ each month. You will have to share the moulds with other people. This means, factories will sell this phone case to all people who pay for it. But you will want to have your own brand, what can you do?
It’s simple, you can print your logo on the phone case. Can do silk print or laser print. The MOQ is low, just about 200-500pcs.
But if you can’t even each MOQ 200-500pcs, then you can only get the market general ones.
The above are for Hybrid TPU phone cases.
If for wallet leather phone case. That will be easier. As the wallet leather phone case are made of Leather+TPU. You just need to change the color of leather, or change a little designs for the leather. Then it will become a new phone case. Then it will look different from those available in market.
Another way to do you own brand is, to use your own design packing. Doing phone case pacing price is cheap, but the packing MOQ is about 5000-10,000pcs.
In a word, if you want to look unique to others, you have to pay more.
