I'll be the first to admit I have a few too many iPhone cases. I love change them out often, and you'll never see with me with a plain black case on my iPhone. I'm excited to share with you some of the cases I love most right now!
1. Permafrost UN Deflector by Uncommon ($39.95)
This transparent frosted case adds a layer of protection and a 3D look to your designs, especially when in contact with direct sunlight. You can choose from readymade designs (including a wide selection of Universities) in the Uncommon store or upload your own designs or photos to create a truly personalized case. The Permafrost case is durable and slick, so it won't get stuck while slipping into your pocket like silicone cases can. It leaves plenty of space for the charger and headphone jack and lies flush with your iPhone screen.
2. DayCase by Under The Rainbow Media (starting at $19.95)
For those of us who love changing our minds, DayCase is exactly what we need. With one shell (a colored bumper with a thin clear polycarbonate back), you can create many customized looks with multiple polyester inserts that refuse to tear or become damaged when in contact with liquids. Choose from a large selection of readymade inserts or design your own with business logos, text, or photos, and you have the ultimate all-in-one case. Though a little snug to connect, you can charge your phone with the case on, and the smooth bumper allows you to slide your iPhone int0 your pocket without getting stuck.
3. State Love Custom iPhone Case by StudioCicada ($15.99)
Show some state pride with this completely customizable case from StudioCicada. Choose your background color, print, state, and town (where you would like the heart added), and then choose your case material (plastic or silicone) and color. I have the black plastic version of this case and can assure you it is durable and easily allows for access to ports and buttons. A great idea for kids heading away to college, a military member away from home, or someone getting ready to make a big move!
4. Case-Mate Vibe Customized by Zazzle (starting at $44.95)
You can add chevrons, monograms, photos, or premade designs to this durable iPhone case made by Zazzle. An inner layer of black silicone and outer custom plastic layer protects this case against almost anything. There is a small amount of visible silicone around the screen and by the charging port, but it doesn't interfere much with the smooth feel of the case as a whole. If you're looking for a custom iPhone case that doesn't comprimize the safety of your phone, this is the one for you.
