Last week I was very kindly offered the chance to try out a custom iPad case* from MrNutcase.com.
Mr Nutcase are a relatively new company offering customers the chance to personalise a phone or tablet case with their own photos, text, clip art or use one of the pre-made designs from their own collection.
Unlike some companies specialising just in the more popular brands of phone, Mr Nutcase can cater for a wide selection including Apple, Blackberry, HTC, Samsung & Sony. Cases are available as Ultra Light Weight Slimline, Executive Flip Leather Style or Full Wrap Around Premium Edition and start from £14.95 which I think is really really good value. Most custom made photo collage phone cases, especially for iPhones, are much pricier than this.
Being the absolute photo hoarder that I am I obviously opted for a photo collage design but the catalogue of Mr Nutcase's own styles & prints looked fab.
When clicking through the website and designing your own case everything is very clearly laid out and simply explained. I was able to chose from a wide selection of collage layouts which was great, I hate being stuck with your standard 3 x 3 square photo layout if that isn't the look I want.
I chose a collage of 16 photos so I could get the maximum in (I definitely find it difficult to whittle my photo selection down to just a few! ha!) and used various size & shapes. I also chose an iPad rather than a phone case because a) I just so happen to have updated my iPhone case recently and b) I thought my photos would be better on a larger case but after seeing other bloggers reviews of phone cases I definitely don't think this was something I needed to worry about as even small images on smaller cases seem to come out crystal clear.
I absolutely love my case and have already had compliments from anybody who has seen my iPad - even a random lady on the train this morning asked me where it was from! The picture quality is great, even though most of my pictures were just simple iPhone snaps and nothing special at all. The case is the perfect size and fits my iPad snuggly ensuring it definitely won't pop out & become loose in my handbag.
I was so so impressed with the whole process of ordering from Mr Nutcase. Everything was super easy, smooth and communication was brilliant. All Mr Nutcase case's are dispatched the next day so they ensure you're case is with you really quickly. I ordered late on a Tuesday and my case was here by this morning.
I'm delighted to be able to offer Sparkle Bug readers an 10% discount on any case from Mr Nutcase. Simply enter the code THANKU10 at the checkout.
