About this project
'Illumicase' is an illuminated iPhone case with interchangeable icons and designs! We made Illumicase as a way for people to express themselves through their phones and to make cases fun and exciting to look at! Illumicase lets you bring your personality to your phone case by allowing you to choose the colours and designs you wish to express.
Your case will express who you are and you'll be able to show it off whenever you get a call or text message.
There are 100's of designs to choose from and they can be switched in and out as often as you change your mind! Initial orders are for iPhone 5 and 5S only!

As of now we have gone through 4 prototyping stages with what little resources we currently have. We have also built a strong relationship with our manufacturing partner and understand what we need to get our product on the market. We've proved that we can achieve what we have designed and we are ready to build Illumicase.
We have brought Illumicase such a long way, yet there is still much more work to be done. You should also note that out Kickstarter fulfillment shipment may take up to 3 months to reach our amazing backers (estimated shipping date is December 2015).
We want everyone to enjoy Illumicase and we plan to keep all of our supporters and backers updated as we work to build Illumicase.
We plan to be as transparent as possible with our progress :)
Illumicase was founded by Luke Olson. Inspiration to create a fun and different phone case struck in a restaurant when trying to find what to do for my future.
Studying Business Management at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. Illumicase has taken me along for a thrilling journey.
Starting as a simple idea in a restaurant, to placing 3rd in the Racine/Kenosha fast pitch competition, to qualifying for nationals in the collegiate entrepreneurs organization elevator pitch.
Illumicase has accomplished all of this so far with only 4 renderings, and now we are proud to say we now have working prototypes for the case itself, as well as its interchangeable designs. Now it's time for Illumicase to comes to life and exceed all expectations.

Risks and challenges
Illumicase has come a long way over the last few years and we plan to expand to bigger and better things. As an original idea we are bound to run into mild complications, but rest assured, as we have done everything we can to make sure the project runs as smoothly as possible from here on in. Manufacturing was the most important part for Illumicase and we are proud to say we have a sound business relationship with our manufacturing partner and are ready to produce Illumicase.
Another potential issue for Illumicase was international shipping. Unfortunately it is quite expensive to ship the cases worldwide (especially for our initial Kickstarter orders). To overcome this problem we have set very low shipping costs around the USA only for all rewards, as well as low cost international shipping for both the 4 pack and the 10 pack of Illumicase sets (thus saving the consumer money on shipping).
Illumicase is a product we feel deeply passionate about and have been working on it relentlessly for the past year at our dining room table. And now with your support, we can bring Illumicase into reality.
Our initial Kickstarter pre-orders will be for iPhone 5 and 5S only.
Yes, the Illumicase case comes packaged with a micro USB charger.
The battery takes 2 hours charge and will last 7-10 days depending on how often the case is used.
Shipping is as follows:
$3 per Illumicase
FREE SHIPPING for the 10 pack of Illumicases
FREE SHIPPING for the ultimate package
As a small startup we are unable to offer international shipping on all of our products during our initial Kickstarter pre-orders, as it is simply too expensive.
We are offering international shipping for the 'Family Pack' and above (see right hand column for all pledge amounts).
The 'Family Pack' will cost $30, the 'Ten Pack' will cost $50, and the 'Ultimate' reward will also cost $50.
We estimate that the merchandise will be shipped out to you guys mid October and all other items will ship in December.
