Design Your Own Phone Case To Protect Your Phone

Protect Your Phone

Your phone is like a small portable laptop that fits right in your pocket or purse. It is a small but valuable object that we carry around with us almost everywhere. So it is important to protect it with a phone case. And what better way to create the perfect case than to design your own phone case. When designing you own phone case, you can customize everything from the type of case the to color and design of the phone case. With Case-monkey.com’s online tools, you can easily create just the design you want. The power to create is just a few clicks away.

The Right Type of Case

The other day when I was longboarding, I tossed my phone into my hoodie pocket. I was doing a trick from a position of siting on my board to standing, and my phone flew out of my pocket. It landed face down on the cement and the screen was  cracked with the LCD screen completely broken. I had a case on my phone, but for the type of activity I was doing, a thin plastic case was not enough. I definitely could have gone with a tough case to have that extra layer of protection for shock absorbent in this situation. The tough case is a little more expensive than the standard case, but a few extra dollars would have gone a long way. For you who carry your phone with you during outdoor activities, I would suggest the tough case. If your phone sits in a purse or bag most of the time, then a basic snap on case will do.

Design Your Own Phone Case

It is easy to design your own phone case using Case-Monkey’s online design tools. You can add photos, add backgrounds, and different fonts to your phone case.

A lot of people use this feature to add a monogram or a special date on their phone case.

Contrast is Key

Contrast is a key element when you design your own iPhone case. Contrast is what makes the images and text pop. You can create contrast by picking colors with a difference in lightness and darkness.

What Are They Going To Name The iPhone 6?

One of the things we like to pass around the office are our best ideas for names for the new iPhone 6. Like most people we’re pretty sure that Apple will ditching the iPhone 5 for iPhone 6. That much is fairly obvious from their past naming styles. But with iPhone 6 rumors swirling all over, and most rumors pointing to two different sizes of iPhone 6, what are they going to name these new models?

Apple’s Classic Naming Style – iPhone 6S

As one of the largest companies in the world Apple doesn’t like to rock the boat with their branding. They typically go with a letter after the number and they usually like to repeat ones they previously used. That means we’re most likely to be seeing cases for a new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S in the future. Apple has used the “S” twice before and with two models of new iPhones it could provide an easy way to tell them apart.

New World Apple – iPhone 6C

Always one to replay a successful act Apple may go for the same divide between the iPhone 6 devices that they used with the iPhone 5. Namely that means one of the devices, likely the smaller of the two rumored sizes, will be the iPhone 6C while the other device may be just the iPhone 6 or become the iPhone 6S. The C hasn’t been as great of a seller for Apple as they might have hoped so they may be trying to reclaim some lost magic from previous versions and skip the idea of the iPhone 6C entirely.

Crossover Appeal – iPhone Nano & iPhone Pro

Never thought you’d see the phrase iPhone Nano? What about iPhone 6 Nano? Well you just might! If you haven’t gotten the drift already we think Apple will reuse something they used before and that might be a naming convention from a previous device. The two most popular Apple devices that have had additional versioning in their name have been the iPod Nano and the Macbook Pro. There’s an outside shot Apple tries to tie in a little crossover naming appeal by going with the iPhone 6 Pro, the larger one, and the iPhone 6 Nano, the now “smaller” size of iPhone

Crazy Ideas

There have been a lot of… unusual… rumors being throw about for some ideas for names so we though we’d get them out there. The most popular of the crazy ideas is the iPhone 6X or iPhone 6L. We’re definitely not 100% behind but we though we should throw it out there just because we all know Apple is known for being so eXtreme. Some of the other ones have been the iPhone Tiny, iPhone Giant, and the iPhone OS. We’re not convinced on any of those crazy ones but we’ll keep you posted when we know more

iPhone 6 – Is It Real This Time? Early Rumors of the New IPhone Size

It is everyone’s favorite time of the year again: new iPhone rumor time! This year we’re definitely anticipating a new iPhone to hit the market and it will likely be called iPhone 6. Apple has no history of repeating previous versions with more identifiers, (like the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C) and most of the rumors seem to suggest that Apple will be releasing not only a ton of new upgrades but even two different versions of the iPhone 6.

Wait, Two iPhone 6s?

Will they be named iPhone 6S and iPhone 6C? We’re guessing so. But outside of naming what’s the current difference? In this case its mostly screen size. Bloomberg has reported this year that Apple is looking to develop a 4.7 inch screen and a 5.5 inch version. The 5.5 inch version, iPhone 6L or iPhone 6S, will be comparable in size to some of the Samsung models.

You can be sure as soon as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6C, or whatever they’re calling it is released Case Monkey will have the your iPhone 6 cases ready.

Case-Monkey Cases – What’s the Difference?

We get asked frequently what the difference is between all of the cases that we offer. Case-Monkey.com is a phone and table hub that connects you with multiple brands of iPhone cases, Galaxy cases, iPad cases, and more. We sample and test out all new cases that we offer on our website. Some are glossy, some are more protective, some print edge to edge, etc. Sometimes it is hard to see the differences online, so we have explained them in more detail below.

thinshield-case

Thinshield Cases

Our Coveroo Thinshield Snap-On cases are different than most of our cases in that they have a matte finish instead of a glossy finish like most of our other cases. The Thinshield case is one piece and snaps onto the back of the phone. The main difference about the design of these cases is that the image prints on the flat back side of the case only. The sides around the case are black. The Thinshield case is slightly thicker than our standard Snap on cases. These cases take between 6-11 days to process and ship.

glossy-case

Snap On Cases

A majority of our cases are the Case-Monkey brand Snap On cases. These cases feature a shiny, high gloss finish. They are slightly thinner than the Thinshield cases. One major different between these cases and the Thinshield case is that the Snap On cases print from edge to edge, including the sides. Text does not always print well on the sides, but your image can be extended from edge to edge with text on the flat part of the case. Most of these cases are $24.95 and ship within 24-48 hours.

We offer a second Snap On case for the iPhone 5 made by Frydaze. These cases are very similar to the Case-Monkey brand Snap On Case but have an oval shaped hole for the camera space instead of the more square shaped hole. They are glossy and have a similar thickness.

tough-case

Tough Cases

Our last type of case is the Tough case. These cases have a similar glossy shell like the Snap On case, but the Tough case includes an inner silicon lining for extra protection. This lining borders the front of the phone the absorbs shock if the case is dropped. The case is still slim but offers another level of extra protection.

Get Ready to Design Your Own iPhone 5S Case: Latest iPhone Revealed This Fall

The tech blog affiliated with the Wall Street Journal, AllThingsD, has reported that Apple will be unveiling the latest iPhone on September 10th, 2013.   Just as Apple is prepping for this so called “release date”, we are over here prepping for whatever new phone they announce so you will be able to design your own iPhone 5S case.  Apple has yet to make any of their own announcements about this release date, but AllThingsD has been fairly accurate in releasing reports about inside Apple information in the past.  If Apple continues with their usual pattern releasing the iPhone 5 on September 2012 and the iPhone 4S on October 2011, then they should be right on track to releasing their newest iPhone this fall.

New Phone or Enhanced Version

It is possible that the new release could be called the iPhone 6, but it is more likely to be the iPhone 5S.  It has been speculated that this new product will maintain the same design as the current iPhone 5, but with some general upgrades.  It is believed that this new product will be more of the same metal, plastic, and glass material that makes up all the older versions of the iPhone.  As great as the new phone may be, it sounds like it’s still going to need the same protection.  Luckily we will make it just as easy to design your own iPhone 5S case as with any of our other cases. Some of the differences that the iPhone 5S are likely to have will be a faster processor, an extended battery life, and an improved camera with a dual LED flash.  The biggest difference that the iPhone 5S will have, that the iPhone 5 does not have, is rumored to be a fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone.

This new model will run with the latest iOS 7, which Apple announced would be released in the Fall 2013. This operating system will include new typography, a new color palette, and re-designed icons. Other smart-phones entering the market against Apple, such as the Samsung Galaxy, has put a bit of a dent in the iPhone sales so hopefully the iPhone 5S will meet the many expectations of consumers.

Start to Design Your Own iPhone 5S Case

Just as with the other top phone brands, we will be getting cases ready for whatever new product Apple has to offer.  We want you to be able to protect your phone as soon as you get it.  With only one month away, you may want to start  to design your own iPhone 5S case.

Summer Design Inspirations

There’s just something about summer that makes people smile, but why is that?  For us there are a number of reasons, one great reason being the sun.  As the days grow longer and the nights get shorter we are able to take full advantage of the benefits from the sun. In fact, there is a chemical serotonin produced in the body that is released with more exposure to the sun, which is a hormone known to make you happy.  Another great reason we love summer are the vacations!  Without school in session, there’s no better time for taking a break. Whether it is a month or a weekend vacation, we’ve all been able to enjoy those few days when we can finally kick our feet up and take time to relax.  What are your reasons for loving summer? Use any of these reasons as an inspiration to start your summer design on your custom phone case!
