On to the subject of this post, I was really excited to partner with CaseApp to pick-out and design my own custom phone case. If you're unfamiliar with the website, they offer hundreds of pre-made templates and designs, but also allow you to customize your own phone case. The options are endless and you could easily spend hours on the website trying out different combinations of patterns, quotes, and clipart. I really liked that the design of the case wraps around the sides of your phone so you're not just left with white space.
My original plan was to use a personal photo, either from a beach trip or New York, but in the end I wasn't 100% confident in the quality of my photos. Instead I decided to slightly customize one of their marble backgrounds-- I loved the shades of blue and added the solid dark turquoise bit to bring out the darker shades in the marble. Knowing summer is right around the corner, I picked out this fun tropical print as well and can't decide which one I like better.
So the case looks great, but is it high quality? From a few weeks of use, it's super lightweight, but durable. I have dropped my phone on hard surfaces twice while using this case and didn't have any issues with cracking or scratching. It's hard to tell from the photos but the casing doesn't go around the top or bottom of the case, so that might be something to consider. They do offer a 'tough' option, that gives more protection, and still looks really great.
Overall, I was impressed with the variety in designs, the customer service, and the cases. If you're interested in a phone or tablet case or a laptop skin you can use CARLY20 to save a little bit of money.
Do you tend to switch out your phone cases or stick to one over the lifetime of your phone? Where do you shop for cases?
CaseApp provided me with two cases in exchange for an honest review.
