Making Monogrammed Leather Phone Cases | Kulör Cases

 

Many times its the little details that make a big difference and monograms could be that little detail for your phone case. 

A leather phone case could be monogrammed by leather embossing (technically it's really debossing) or leather engraving. The two methods can be easily distinguished: a) leather debossing makes a compressed mark on the leather with or without foil and b) leather engraving removes certain amount of leather by carving or cutting. At Kulor Cases, we use the leather embossing process to personalize the monogrammed leather phone cases.

Leather debossing can be done using a manual foil stamping machine for low-volume jobs or an air-powered machine for high volume commercial operations. Due to the unique nature of each custom monogrammed phone case order, we use manual foil stamping machines to personalize the monograms. You can find out more on our leather phone case personalization service. 

 

 

As for leather engraving, either leather carving hand tools or laser engraving machines are used to cut and scrap leather. Nowaday, most leather engraving are done by laser as laser beams are very clean and precise when they melt the surface of the leather and they seal edges as they go. Compared to hand engraving, they get the job done much faster and they do not make mistakes as the laser beams are automatically guided by computers. We will introduce laser engraving service with future launch of new monogrammed phone case collections

The two methods of personalizing a leather phone case are very straight forward and they have been used by leather craftsmen for hundreds of years. But to master the art of personalizing phone cases that are made with different leather materials, different monogram designs and different metallic dies would require years of apprenticeship and hard work.
