Holiday Gift Idea: Custom Phone Case + 20% Off!

November 30, 2016

CaseApp Phone Case Laptop Skin

The holidays are fast approaching which means it's time to start our gift shopping! This time of the year isn't all just about presents-- it's also a time to express gratitude and show your loved ones how much you care about them. I'm not the type of person that shows their love through how much money they spend--it's the thought that counts! A custom phone case or laptop skin from CaseApp is the perfect gift because it lets you get a little more creative and personal. Cases are an easy accessory to slip on and off your phone, so it doesn't have to be something to stress out over if the person will like or not. Today I'm sharing how I designed mine for my new iPhone 7 that CaseApp kindly sent to me. Stick around until the end of this post to learn how you can save 20% off your very own design!

Start with a blank canvas. You can choose from a bunch of premade designs, or start from scratch by uploading your own images. This is where you can get really creative and think about who you're making it for. You can add a collage of photos, draw your own design, or find some images online that fit a certain aesthetic.

I don't think it's a mystery that I love more minimalist designs--especially marble. If you're like me and need inspiration/a starting point when it comes to creating something, I suggest browsing the plethora of premade designs to get an idea of what you are looking for. I drew my inspiration from these three cases and uploaded a photograph I found on Google images for the bottom black portion of my case. You also have the option to play around with the premade designs by rotating or resizing.

You can see here how I played around with the designs until I got what I wanted. This is where you can keep it simple or go with text, color, and clipart.

Ta-da! I'm in love with my new case and it's pretty high quality--not cheap plastic you see on a lot of cases nowadays. I know my phone will be protected against minor scrapes and falls :)

You can also design your own laptop skin by using the same process. With a laptop skin you have more surface area to work with which can make it much more fun. Whether you're creating a design for your mom, dad, or bestie, a personalized design will definitely let them know you put thought and effort into their gift.


Now on to the good stuff: Use my code "INSEARCHOFXMAS20" to receive 20% off your purchase! You can use this code on more than just one design, so you could make a bunch of different ones or even make matching ones and keep one for yourself. Be sure to order by December 6th if you live in the U.S. so your custom case or skin gets shipped to you in time. Happy designing!!
