    Print Contact Information

    Your customers are on their phones when they see a cell phone wallet from your company. That’s why it only makes sense to include your phone number, website, or email address in the final design. They can easily go from texting their friends to paying you a visit.

    Don’t Forget Your Logo

    Your logo is an important part of your branding so make it part of the final design. The imprint area is the space where your logo or message is printed. It varies from product to product, but for cell phone wallets, it’s typically a square or rectangular space that will fit your logo and contact information with ease.

    Maybe you’re an overachiever and ordered your cell phone wallets early. If that’s the case, make sure to store them properly before your event so the imprint doesn’t fade. Keep them away from water or extreme heat so you can take them out of the box in pristine condition.
