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.

Kindle Cases

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?

Instead of opting for a regular faux leather case in black, why not have a look at the 5 sites I am about to introduce you to. I am sure that at least one of them will be good enough to give you some idea as to how you would like your case to look.

Customisation

Even though the customisation of device accessories started with skins, it now appears that there is a trend in creating your own accessories for mobile devices. You now have the availability to get items such plastic cases, zip sleeves, plus book-style covers. These can be personalised to your own design.
These sites, that are now concentrating on allowing you to customise covers, now offer covers for more than just the more popular devices like the iPhone and the iPad.
Some of the designs you can choose from are the monogram versions (circle or script). One of the good points of using customisation, is that you can either choose from options already available or you also have the option to modify designs already there. If you don’t like the cases, there is always the opportunity to create your own cover yourself from scratch.

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

Etsy cases you can customiseAre you a person who does not like to have a case that others are using, then why not head over to 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.

When you are looking for something in Etsy that you want to personalise, then you need to click the box saying “Customisable”. This box can be found in the sidebar on the left hand side as shown below.
Find customized covers on Etsy

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.

Kari Rhoads is a good example of this as she lets you personalise Kindle cases, simply by adding the monogram plus other options for customisation.

  1. You have the selection of what monogram design you prefer. This could be either script or circle.
  2. You can choose whether you want one, two or three initials.
  3. You have the choice of over 20 monogram colours to choose from.
  4. There is the choice of both a colour and pattern for the background (there are 20 to pick from).
  5. 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.

As there is some of the covers which are classed as five-star, you could be mistaken for thinking that you are dealing with a fashion brand as opposed to tech accessories.
By using the designs that are unique, you are then at the first level in allowing your case to be influenced by your personal style and then by making use of such a thing as an online customisation dashboard which is simple you can do the next level by creating a cover of your own.
Below are three of the major options although the amount of options is completely endless:
  1. you are able to select the core colour for both the outside and inside of the case.
  2. Your own artwork and photos can be added.
  3. 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

As well as there being skins, you can also purchase hard plastic cases for the iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One plus the iPad which also includes the Air and the Mini Retina at Decal Girl. You also have the opportunity to either get a design that is already made or you can create one of your own.Although there are a few other established sites which initially offered skins for your mobile devices that can be customised as well as also expanding into offering cases, one of the best sites available is Decal Girl.There is the option to choose from lots of designs and you can also use a customisation panel to create your own case as you also did in Caseable. However, as there is not way that you can add additional content on the default designs, you can make the choice to either pick a design or make your very own case from scratch.One of the good points from Decal Girl is that you have the choice to decide the kind of finish you are after. You can choose from a clear finish, a shiny “high gloss” or you can go for a “matte/satin” finish which is smoother, plus the final one makes the glare and fingerprints reduced.After you finish placing your order you will automatically get a free wallpaper along with matching design delivered to your email immediately and all this is included in the purchase.

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.

Let me introduce you to a site that offers organic cases and sleeves that you are able to doodle on and draw your own pictures. Welcome to Papernomad which is offered by Griffin.

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.

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    I was looking for a kindle cover, I never knew there were so many options, I actually really like the thought of choosing my own fabric. I like the way you can speak to a seller to see if you can further customise the design. I think its good that they will make the service personal, i think this is a nice touch.
    I appreciate your great review and I love the look of your website, very easy to find your way around.
    Thanks,

  3. Awesome, although I don’t own a kindle I was thinking about getting one because of your article. Great one, I saw some covers that are really cool looking and I would be excited in getting. I really enjoyed reading about the customization on all the covers, this is really cool. I also found it quite easy navigating and finding the information I needed on your site.
    Awesome job,
    JesusB

    1. Hi Jesus, thanks for your comment and it was nice to see that although you don’t own a kindle, my article has inspired you enough to think about getting one. I certainly would like to make my own case if I was to get another kindle or even if I just fancied another case. I am glad that you found it easy to navigate round my site to get the information you were needing. I will say one thing to you and that is I do hope you treat yourself to a kindle, even just a basic one and that you make a great case for it and have fun reading on it as well.
