product review - iphone4s case
I found out about Mr Nutcase - a custom phone case company - through a fellow blogger's review of one of their cases. They cater for many smart phone/tablet cases and covers (a quick count on their wesbite and I counted 13 products of various brands - all the biggies basically) and having an iPhone I had no problem finding my product.
The idea of Mr Nutcase, in case you can't guess, is that they provide you with a personalised phone/tablet cover using an image of your choosing. The website is incredibly easy to navigate and simple in all the right ways - nothing puts me off a new product more than a difficult to navigate website - and the branding is a little cheesy, but not in your face and so this was not a turn off at all (unlike say certain personalised card websites..).
I created an 'Ultra Light Weight Slimline Case' which normally cost £14.95 - a reasonable enough price for a customised phone case, including p&p, and they dispatch the next day (mine came within 2 days - brilliant!). The layout and steps to choosing your image stays simple all the way - the website suggests an ideal image quality for your best results, and you can alter the image/add text/add clip art to your phone case too, of if that isn't your thing you can choose existing patterns/designs submitted by other customers.
After much agonising I chose one of my favourite picture of me and B - I fancied a geeky Totoro image (doesn't have to be a picture!) but couldn't decide on a single one - and easily uploaded it, adjusted it, and placed my order.
These are very minor concerns however - for the product of designing your own phone case the Mr Nutcase website does the job very well.
Overall I am impressed with the service offered by Mr Nutcase and the case received will protect my phone adequately - their customer service is also very good; they are very ready to help which is always refreshing in an web-based stored! If I were to get another case however I would choose a different image as I think the service they offer works better with brightly coloured images/pictures rather than a black and white image which doesn't have a huge impact. The price is also a factor for me- I wouldn't normally pay this much for a phone case - but if you wanted a phone case design you absolutely couldn't get any other way then Mr Nutcase is certainly somewhere you should consider!
