As soon as smartphones came out, case retailers quickly learned that smartphone owners were eager to customize their cases by uploading their own images and logos to display proudly. The technology has only improved as the years have gone on, and some retailers are even offering customizable portable chargers and Bluetooth speakers.
1. SkinIt Inkfusion Cases ($29.99-34.99)
SkinIt features some of the sharpest colors I've seen on a custom case. I love that their Inkfusion Pro cases come with an impact-absorbing silicone liner that provides a lip of protection against drops to the screen of your device, and the custom design is printed on all sides of a tough polymer case. I've been using my SkinIt Inkfusion Pro case for over a month now and the colors are still as crisp and bright as the day I opened the box. SkinIt allows you to upload a custom image or logo or use one of their many licensed images including those from NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, collegiate, military, DC Comics, Harry Potter, and Hello Kitty.
2. Cellairis Shout Custom Cases (starting at $39.99)
Great for predesigned monograms or easy-to-create collages, the Cellairis Shout cases have taken custom to the next level. Easily upload your photos from Instagram or Facebook to easily create a one of a kind collage for your phone, or choose one of the several monogram styles to put on any of the custom cases Cellairis offers for personalization. You choose the protection level, Cellairis does the rest.
3. Powerstick.com Custom Portable Charger ($99.99)
Powerstick.com is branching out and customizing Bluetooth speakers and portable chargers! The 5,700mAh PowerTrip charger can be powered by the solar panel on the back or by plugging it into a wall outlet. The PowerTrip is also available with 8 or 16GB of memory, and has an auto shut-off feature.
