Is Your Custom Phone Case Right for Your Phone?

11th June 2016

Everything’s custom these days, from bumper stickers to console skins. When we’re surrounded by so much technology, little things like decking out a phone can make us feel more at ease flashing high-tech gadgets around. Custom phone cases are also great gift ideas for people who care about their phones, which is virtually everybody on the face of the planet.

But what is it that makes great personalised phone cases? It all boils down to these two things: your phone and your personality.


1.Are they right for your phone?

Take a look around you, and you’re bound to see some ginormous customized phone cases on some miniature gadgets, which begs the question “Why buy a see-through phone if you’re ‘pimping’ it with a brick-sized case, to begin with?“. A good rule of thumb is: if you can take your phone out of your pocket in 2-3 seconds without damaging the case or needing both hands, then you’re in the clear.


2.Are they right for you?

Then there’s the issue of colour, bling and other little tricks to give it that wow factor. Generally speaking, less is more, but however fancy your custom cases are, they’re a canvas for you to express yourself. Carbon fibre skins made of textured vinyl are stylish and professional, metallic skins with brushed textures are modern and practical, while shimmering, sparkling, iridescent or glittery cases are playful and creative. But what’s even better is opting to design phone cases that really tell a story, with your own pictures or patterns printed right on them. Nothing says ‘ME’ more than a framed selfie, does it?
