Black or white – that’s it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPhone, but most cell phones are severely slacking in the style category. Thankfully, though, this allows for many companies to provide us with stylish case and cover options. They are everywhere from the cell phone providers themselves to electronic stores, online shops, the mall, and even everyday retail stores. But which of the thousands is best?
I have personally tried out quite a few over the years and have even had a stock cover custom designed by air brush back in the day. Some I have loved and some I have hated. The biggest problem has always been personalization. It’s not “cool” to have the same “custom” cover as someone else because, well, it’s no longer customized for YOU. Luckily, the times have changed and you can now create your very own case that is, truly, unique to you. And no, no, it’s not one of those things that are only for the Apple gang. You can create your own case or skin to cover just about anything.
Genius idea, eh? Yes. Amazing company? Of course! Who is it? GelaSkins!
GelaSkins launched in 2005 and, more recently, began allowing users to design their own products. No worries if you’re not the artistic type, either. GelaSkins has some of the world’s most creative minds, including award-winning illustrators (can you say Tim Burton?!), masters of the game (National Geographic, anyone?) and up-and-coming artists, contributing to the website’s design gallery. Occasionally, GelaSkins even features designs from charitable organizations currently including Charity: Water and One.
Now, I bet you’re wondering about the quality. I will admit that there are quite a few cheaply made cases out there but GelaSkins is NOT one of them. I absolutely love this case. It is very sturdy and extremely durable. With two toddlers, my phone doubles as a toy and they have definitely put it to the ultimate test and then some. Like GelaSkins’ scratch resistant skins, my hard case has still yet to gain any imperfections. They are made of polycarbonate material which is virtually indestructible even when thrown in the midst of a tantrum because Mommy needs her phone back. The photographic quality is equally as amazing. While it is true that I may be a bit biased considering the subject of the photo, the clarity and overall image is breathtaking.
If you choose to create your own, GelaSkins has a few photographic tips to help you through the process. Thanks to a friend of ours over at Endless Memories Photography, we had no resolution issues and my hard case came out beautifully. See for yourself…
I have received too many compliments to keep count and showing off my very own GelaSkins case has become second nature. Now, we’d like to share GelaSkins with you! One lucky Son-kissed reader will win a gift certificate to get your very own GelaSkins design!
