Case-Mate DIY case Hands-on
Available to a variety of devices, like the iPhone (3G/3GS/4), BlackBerry Curve 8520, BlackBerry Bold 9700, and iPod touch, Case-Mate's DIY cases employs an in-depth process in crafting your own unique creation. Naturally, you can upload your own image which can be used with your case, but it has to be at a high enough resolution for it to accept. If that's not your kind of thing, you can design your case by using an eclectic mix of tools which basically puts you in the control of everything – like an artist ready to paint a masterpiece. The online tools at your disposal essentially allows you to fine tune every single aspect of your design to the nail and tooth – something that people with a lot of time will undoubtedly appreciate. In fact, you can expect to spend a good deal of time in coming up with your creation thanks to Case-Mate's depth of personalization options.
As for the actual case we created for the iPhone 3GS, we decided to simply start with a default template and add some additional elements to the “barely there” option. Naturally, the end product looks exactly like the one we designed on their web site. Thankfully, it also comes shipped with a screen protector for the phone which definitely adds more value to the $34.99 pricing of it. Needless to say that it's hard to fathom seeing someone else sporting the same exact DIY one you create with Case-Mate.
