A look at phone painting   Leave a comment

Here at Black Box Resale Services, we do it all. Our phone refurbishing and repair services are top-notch, and we feel like the quality of our services make us stand out. We get a lot of broken, dirty phones sent to us, and by the time we’re done with them they sparkle like new! More importantly, they work just like new too. Recently I took an in-depth tour of our paint process. Let’s take a look…


When a box of phones enters our warehouse, they are inspected by our team and a series of quality checks is done. This determines exactly what needs to be done to get each phone looking and operating like new. They are then put into inventory based on these quality checks. After the phones are disassembled, they go through a 3 stage wash and cleaning process. After an alcohol wipe to get them ready to paint, they are put in racks and dried overnight.


This rigorous cleaning process ensures that once painted the phones will look just as good as phones that come from the factory new. We take pride in our products, and it shows.


Our specialized paint room sets us apart in the telephony refurbishment game, and we move a lot of inventory each week as the paint center now operates full-time to keep up with demand. 60 different colors of paint give us the ability to offer customers a range of options to fit their needs.

After the paint dries, the finishing touches are put on the phone – including new logos. Black Box Resale Services utilizes a silk-screening process for the logos, which is unique as well. Many refurbishers simply slap on a sticker or decal, but the silk-screened logo makes the phone look factory-fresh.

So there it is, a photo essay about the lifecycle of a painted phone. We give old, broken dirty phones a serious makeover and keep usable equipment out of the landfill.
