Sublimated mobile device cases are very easy to quickly sublimate, and they have an unbelievable profit margin. We have talked about this in depth in the past, but sublimation is a low cost startup investment.

If you want to do mobile device cases, then you only have to get the smaller of the current sublimation systems on the market since the cases are not very large. You can purchase the Ricoh SG3110dn package for under $500. Match that with a smaller heat press for around $800, and you pretty much have a complete system to decorate all of the available mobile device cases on the market.

Further, if you already know a graphics program such as CorelDraw, Photoshop or Illustrator, then the ease of designing the products and sublimating them is fairly effortless with the available free template downloads. You could be sublimating cases in as little as one hour from receiving your equipment, so training production staff is not very difficult at all.

Almost everyone has a mobile device, and the market is growing by leaps and bounds. It is not hard to get started, the investment is low, and the profit margin is huge. Now is the time to grab your piece of the pie and start sublimating mobile device cases.
