Personalise Your Device Covers
Do you have an electronic device that you would like to get a cover for, but you don’t just want a cover that is boring or that somebody else could have. Well stay with me and I will show you 5 ways you can use to create your own personalised device cover.
Have you been looking for a new case or simply just a case for your Kindle, then you can pick from any of the plain coloured cases which are available. They do come in bright colours such as pink, blue and even yellow as well as the more basic colours such as black, brown and red.
What Is Your Preferred Style?
Make Your Own Cases
Below are 5 of the best recommended sites for customising your cases for kindles as well as other devices. There should at least be one design you will like that will make you want to create your own. By doing so, you will make sure that no one else will have the same one.
However though, if you don’t yet feel ready for things that are a bit more crazy, you are not obliged to place an order. You can use this opportunity to be inspired, as well as comparing how much of your personality you have lost by taking the decision to follow the hoards and use the same cover as most other people.
Site Number One – Etsy
At Etsy, you can see items which are a totally different design to what you usually see. Because they are such a great change to formal accessories, then you will have the ability to see colourful and cute covers which are surprisingly wonderful looking. They will remind you of how it was to touch a favourite toy you once had.
There are two levels of customisation in Etsy, these are as follows below:
- generally, all the items are made to order
- there are some customisation options available from shop owners.
The Made To Order Process
This process for buying, consists of a contact between the seller and the user. This will be personal with the benefit that there will no automation script.
As the artists at Etsy are able to alter their designs so that they match the device they own, they will be able to inform the seller about what device they own. They can also give the dimensions which will also be helpful.
It is important to make sure you read the items description. By doing this, you may be surprised to find out you are able to fine-tune your design. This can be a simple thing like being able to change the colour of an outside pocket.
If, after reading the item’s description, you are unable to find an option, you can take the chance to ask your seller while in conversation, if there is any chance of getting a different option.
One of the best ways you can get a customised cover which is better than what you have already been offered is by having a one-to-one interaction.
Customisation Options which are Extra
You may be offered an additional way by your seller to customise your cover further.
As well as the selection of textures, colours and material you can use, there may also be the option of ordering the cover with both a special design and text.
- You have the selection of what monogram design you prefer. This could be either script or circle.
- You can choose whether you want one, two or three initials.
- You have the choice of over 20 monogram colours to choose from.
- There is the choice of both a colour and pattern for the background (there are 20 to pick from).
- You are able to decide if you would like the spine to be either black or brown.
See below for 2 of the favourite shops from Etsy that offer customised covers for the smartphone, e-reader and tablet.
- Use Kari On Designs – so that you have a selection of background colors and patterns for custom monograms.
- If Using Little Pigeon Crafts – you get to make the choice of the type of font as well as the chevron fabric that you would like to use when you personalise your cover with your name.
Site Number 2. – Caseable
One of the best destinations you can go to if you would like total control when designing your cover as well as having great fun while you create it is a site named Caseable.
With Caseable, you have access to large numbers of designs that are already available to use from things like collections by artists, typography, urban designs, trendy patterns and abstract compositions as well as vintage photos.
All the covers provided by Caseable are handmade from first-class recycled materials and there are zip sleeves, material covers and also hard cases suitable for lots of we-known versions of phones, tablets and also e-readers.
- you are able to select the core colour for both the outside and inside of the case.
- Your own artwork and photos can be added.
- There is the option for you to add text as well as picking up the font face as well as the colour.
Another exciting function from Caseable is that instead of designing your own cover from start to finish, you can make the decision to modify a design from an existing artist such as by taking away the picture of the front and then add your own text as well as colour as shown in the one that’s below.
All the cases, sleeves and even covers have a good photo quality as well as the images being a complete bleed print. All these items are also made to order as well. As the covers are made for particular models, if you purchase one of cases for say your iPad, you will discover that they use magnets for supporting the sleep/wake feature.
Below are 5 of the most popular artists who have their own collections on Caseable.
- Ali Gulec
- Bianca Green
- Minjae Lee
- Claus-Peter Schöps
- Brent Williams
Site Number 3. Decal Girl
Site Number 4. Papernomad Griffin
Should the fun in personalising your covers for your devices such as the kindle end before you actually purchase it, It seems now that it doesn’t have to.
This means that instead of having the option to personalise your case or sleeve before you buy, you have all the fun of putting whatever you want on your case/sleeve after you have bought it. You can draw or write absolutely anything at all on it, it is entirely up to you and you can keep adding to it whenever you want.
At present you are able to get the sleeves on which you are able to doodle for the iPad, iPhone, 11″ and 13″ of the MacBook Air and the Samsung Galaxy. There is also Folio cases which are available for the iPad Mini as well as the iPad 4, 3 and 2.
The sleeves and cases are made from a number of layers of both biopolymers and paper which makes this both water and tear-resistant. When you decide to start designing your Papernomad sleeve/case you can use either pen, paint, crayon or pencil and have the added assurance that it will never fade.
Site Number 5. Amazon
Did you know that you can now personalise covers for the Kindle on Amazon, without even having to leave Amazon. They now have a new section available where you have the opportunity of making a cover or skin for any of the kindle models available more personalised to suit your own needs.
A selection of skins, sleeves and cases that you are able to personalise are available for each model of the Kindle as well as for the Kindle Fire HDX, there are also elaborate Origami cases available on the list.
Although there is a limited amount of choice in the images and the designs are not as great as the ones from Caseable, you do have the option to personalise either the front, back or even both. By adding your own photo, you then open another way of being able to entirely personalise your cover.
As there is not an option to add any text, then you will need to put the persons initials that you are buying the cover for will need to be put into the photo that you are going to use.
Good Idea or Not
I personally think that being able to personalise cases for devices such as Kindles is a great idea as you can make a case that you know nobody else is ever going to have. You are also able to use the service to create beautiful and personal gifts for friends and family that would have a special touch as well as letting the person receiving the gift know you have taken that extra step to make something that they know you will treasure for a long time.
I have only listed 5 of the sites that are available for customising sleeves, skins and cases but there are probably a whole load more that are also available. The ones I have used are the ones I was most impressed with when looking to see what they had to offer with regards to how much customisation you are able to use for the cases, such as colours, if you can add your own photos as well as text and if you can customise the front and the back of the case.
I would certainly use more than one of these sites to make a customised case either for myself or even for a gift and think the ones from Papernomad would be an excellent idea for anyone who loves to draw or to just doodle as they will always be able to see their handiwork whenever they are reading their kindle or any other device they are using.
