    Starting a Cell Phone Case buisness

    Hey guys I could really use some advice!

    I've come up with this really great idea for a cell phone case and I really think it could be great so I've decided to get into the game. I'm a young college student and at this point it seems better to be creating something then trying to find a job. I'm relatively new to this trade so I was wondering if I could get some pointers, right now I'm working on a prototype for a patent, but after that is done I'm a little lost!

    So here it goes, is it best to start up your own factory here or to outsource?
    I know that companies like Incase have a factory in China and in the US, but as a start up which would be best? Would it be possible to find a reputable manufacture that wouldn't pirate my product?

    I know I sound naive, but I feel like with proper marketing my idea could be huge which I'm good at (everyone says that I know), but as far as the manufacturing of the product I'm lost! Any advice you guys have I would really appreciate!!

    Hum....Cell phone cases. A case for a cell phone. Man, I wish I would have thought of that. Hell, I could even make mine out of Titanium or plastic or stainless or ...lol just kidding...


    Seriously, you have to get a bunch (maybe a dozen) of good working prototypes, have some friends try them for a while, work out the bugs, have more made, then start marketing them like crazy.

    Good luck!

    Oh, and if you need some billet Iphone cases, I can get you some.

    can guarantee you all the major ones are made in china. cost them probably less than 25 cents a piece, problem is the market is already flooded with them so you would have to come up with something pretty different to get it to catch on

    All the encryption procedures are so complicated that most of the people won’t simply mess with that. Under this condition, we provide two decent options available for concealing your information. The first option is to use the GSM and mobile internet signal blocker, which will help block the related frequencies and thus hide you for a short period. However, the drawback is that you won’t be able to make or receive a phone call. Then the second option is to avoid storing private and valuable data on your portable devices, smartphone or tablet. Both of those are going to cut the functionality of your device, but will surely prevent data leaks.
