Shortly after buying my iPhone, I bought a case to protect it. Especially in my house (with 5 kids who inevitably handle my phone many times a day) my phone need some extra protection. I bought a nice, boring black and blue case which worked well for me, except for the fact that it had no personality. I admit that I was slightly jealous of my friends who had custom cases.
I jumped at the chance a few weeks ago to create my very own custom case at Zazzle.com. I browsed Zazzle’s selection of designs, and ended up deciding to create a case that featured the header picture from my blog. As excited as I was to have a phone that showed off my personality (and my blog!), I was a little fearful that the cute case would not protect as well as my old, boring case.
When the package came, I opened it immediately and tried the new case on my phone. It fit like a glove (or as the packaging stated, “Like a thong for your smart phone”). And I was pleasantly surprised that it not only provided equal protection, but that I liked the feel of my phone in my hands even better with my new case.
My kids have not stopped commenting on the new case from Case-Mate, either. At first, they thought that I’d gotten a new iPhone (I wish!). My custom case really does give my phone a whole new (and unique) look. My kids are not as excited as I am about the candy picture on the back, but they love the way the case fits.
