Question
« on: April 23, 2014, 10:51:46 AM »
Hey guys as some of you may know my dad and I have been in a on again off again process of starting a laser engraving/sublimation business for a long time now.  We have the ability to do a lot of different stuff, we just haven't decided exactly what we want to do yet.

Sooo, I was interested in knowing what you prefer for phone cases and tablet cases.  As in what material do you prefer (Plastic, Rubber, Leather, etc.)?  What colors do you like for them?

Is there anything that you or your friends/family would particularly be interested in laser engraving/sublimation?

Thanks for any info you can provide!  :beer:

Hi Meeps!

I can't give you any specific ideas on engraving or sublimation. (btw, what is sublimation? Like acid etching?  :embarassed:)Never had a need/desire for those...sry.  :worried2:

 I don't own a tablet, and for my phone I use an Otterbox Commuter. It's plastic with a rubber insert. I got it in black - only because they don't offer it in a Hello Kitty design.  :2vrolijk_08:
I like leather cases, but prefer something slimmer as being more "user friendly".

Hope this helps! And good luck with your business!

Thanks for the input Phigment, anything helps. :)

As for sublimation printing it can produce full-color, photographic-quality images that will not crack, peel or wash away from whatever they're put on. The ink is heated to 400F, which turns it into a gas and forms a permanent bond to 100% polyester fabric or items that have a polymer coating.  We haven't done a lot of this yet, but it has a lot of possibilities.

I was hoping there'd be more of a response, but oh well, these forums have really been mostly dead lands lately.  :(
