What's 3D printing?


Mobile phones are an important part of many people's lives these days. The increasing sophistication of smartphones means that we use our mobiles for far more than just calls and texts. Often the phone is now a key part of business life, allowing you to access company data when out of the office, for example, or the key to organising your personal life, letting you access and update social networks on the move. Because our phones have become so important, it's vital to protect them and that usually means putting them in some sort of case.

Types of Case

You can, of course, just walk into a shop and buy a phone case, but if you do that it will probably be dull and black and just the same as the one everyone else has. Where's the fun in that? Fortunately, for people who want to be a bit different there are plenty of personalised phone cases available. You can have these printed with a favourite photo to make them stand out and they come in a range of styles. Whether you choose a leather flip case, a polycarbonate case or a full wrap-around case, all can be customised with your own choice of design. You can ensure that your phone is protected and that it looks good too.

Protecting Your Phone – This Time It's Personal

Although there are plenty of personalisation options available now, things are about to get a lot better. You've probably heard of 3D printing. It's a technology that has taken the world by storm, allowing objects to be designed on computer and printed out in plastic. 3D printing minimises the development time for new products and allows short runs to be produced cost-effectively. Of course, the technology is still expensive, and it'll be a while before we have 3D printers at home, but it does make it possible for businesses to offer a wider range of products to their customers. When it comes to mobile phone cases, for example, you'll soon be able to create your own design on your PC and upload it to a supplier to be printed. This means that the range of personalised phone cases becomes limitless. Any design you want is possible, so rather than just having a photo you can incorporate textures, etch your initials into the surface or incorporate a raised design. This is ideal for individuals and also for businesses. Imaging having your company logo incorporated into the case design. You could use this for your staff who are out and about on the road or as a promotional item for customers. Protecting your phone needn't mean having a dull case. There are plenty of customisation options available, and thanks to 3D printing technology the choice is about to get even wider.
