The Case Studio Phone Case Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
My mobile phone is a Galaxy S5. I'm on plenty of deal mailing lists and I see deals galore for iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 cases where I could have at least a dozen different cases for like a dollar each, regularly priced from $10-$20 each. None of which are very useful to me. Low and behold I get an email from The Case Studio to check out what they offer. The cases aren't like the $1 ones though, These are custom cases that you personalize with either your name, initials, or your own photos. Any photo you have the rights to, you can put on your new phone case.
And, that's exactly what I did. I took my logo for the blog, which is a public domain image, and made a phone case with it. The tools on The Case Studio are very flexible, allowing you to place images and text nearly anywhere. I did have to drop my image onto a larger canvas so that I could center it just right. That was done outside of their web interface. But, apart from that, creating the case was a breeze. The rugged case I received should hold up well long term, until I upgrade phones again.

What was hard was picking which case to use as the base. While they have cases for iPhones, iPads, iPods, tablets, Android phones, and laptops, that part was easy for me since I knew it was going to wrap my mobile phone. The hard part was picking from the numerous photo cases, patterned cases, or designer cases.  Plus, you also get to choose between sleek (thin) and tough, more rugged, cases. I went with the latter for that.

The photo case options aren't just here's the photo and put on the case like I did, but you can have multiple photos on the case, with or without other design elements.
The patterned cases offer monogramming or other ways to customize. I wasn't fond of these cases. Just not my style.
What they dub as designer cases are designed by their designers, not well known outside designers. That isn't necessarily a bad thing just named a little confusingly.

After you design your case and submit your order, delivery was quick. I ordered on the 6th, it shipped on the 10th, and I had it in my hands on the 14th. Product traveled by ground so if you live closer to Oklahoma, you might have quicker. They claim 10-14 business day turnaround.

Once you get the case, you need to pop off the old case and replace. It is that easy. Very simple. You're all set as the external buttons align to the internal ones that got wrapped.

Want one for yourself? Use coupon code 25toSpend and save $25, dropping price to $25 for nearly all the cases.
