How Phone Cases Are Printed?

The first step when creating a phone case is to approve your graphics. Before printing, make sure that the printer doesn’t have any dust or unwanted debris. A white under-base and colored topcoat are printed continuously using UV printing advanced technology. The UV printing process dries the ink through a photochemical reaction process. High-intensity UV lights are utilized to dried ink which turns them from liquid to solid.

Use Transparent Colors for Your Phone Case

Avoid printing any design elements that have both opaque and transparent elements for your phone case. Because the contrast of the solid colors and transparent is not a match.  In some scenarios, the result looks like there are some gaps in your design and the colors didn’t print as you expected.

Also, remember that transparent colors are not the same as opaque. Editing and creating transparent colors in Photoshop will refer to opacity. Transparency and opacity are two different things, for example, 100% transparent is 0% opaque and vice versa. If you have a graphics and you want 25% transparency, it’ll displays as 75% opacity in total.

Follow Printing File Guidelines

  • PNG or JPEG files with at least 300 DPI
  • Make files set to sRGB color profile
  • Keep any graphics elements on the safe print area
  • Don’t forget your phone’s camera and logo area
