6 Ways You Can Personalise a Phone Case

In today’s technology-driven world, it’s become pretty rare to see anyone without a smartphone close to hand! Whether you know someone getting a fresh upgrade for Christmas or want to freshen up your own device without the cost of replacing your phone, a new Personalised Phone Case could be the solution you’re looking for. With most phone modules looking similar from the outside, designing your very own phone case is an easy way to make your device unique and different from the rest.

To help you get started, we’ve collated six creative ways you can design and personalise your own phone case with CEWE.

First Things First - Find Your Fit

Firstly, you’ll need to choose what style of phone case you want. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the range of styles we have available, from slimline silicone and hardwearing cases to sideflip wallets, sleeves and premium real leather cases. Make sure you know the make and model of the phone you want to design a phone case for – we have cases to fit several different generations of iPhone, Samsung and Huawei.

The latest addition to our range of personalised Phone Cases is the brand new Lanyard Phone Case. Perfect for those who always have their phone in their hand, this Lanyard Case will make sure their phone is never too far away! Safe to travel with, your phone will be protected in a silicone case with your choice of a leather or fabric lanyard available in a range of colours too.

6 Ways to Personalise Your Phone Case

1. With Your Initials

The simplest but most effective way to add a personal touch to your customised phone case is to add your initials or name using text. As phone cases are quite narrow, it can be difficult to fit a longer name, but creating your own personalised phone case with initials is a great way to claim your case. Choose a stylish background or pattern, such as an animal print or dots, and layer your initials on top using text. You can also add your own photos to your phone case with initials to make it even more unique to you.

2. A Favourite Pattern

There’s nothing more frustrating than having a particular phone case design in mind, but you can’t find it anywhere on the high street. If this has happened to you before, why not create it yourself? For those feeling inspired by a pattern or wallpaper they’ve seen online and looking for something quick and easy to design, you can simply save your favourite pattern to your device and upload to the Creator Software to turn into your very own personalised phone case. If you’re a budding artist, you can also draw your own pattern and scan it into a computer to upload as your phone case design. Some of our favourite patterns include the popular personalised marble phone case, in addition to ocean waves and sand.

Top tip: You can even update your phone case with the seasons by ordering a selection of custom designs. Use bright yellow and greens for use in summer, orange and brown hues for autumn and icy blues for winter – perfect for those who can’t pick just one design!

3. Your Best Travel Shots

Whether you’re an adventurer at heart or have been lucky enough to see a lot of the world, you can now take your wanderlust with you wherever you go with a personalised travel phone case. Whether it’s a photo you’ve taken yourself or of a place on your bucket list, keep your travel dreams alive by showcasing a photo of your favourite destination on your own personalised Phone Case. We recommend choosing a hardwearing phone case such as our sturdy Tough Case to keep your device safe and protected anywhere you go. We think it’s the perfect way to bring your best travel photos to life.

4. A Furry Friend

There’s no greater bond than the one you have with your pet. Any pet lover will be obsessed with this thoughtful gift of a personalised phone case featuring their very own furry friend. From dogs and cats to reptiles and rabbits, adorn their personalised phone case with a favourite photo of their pet for the best gift. A word of warning, they’ll never want to put their phone down unless it’s to hug their beloved pet for real!

5. Your Own Photo Collage

If you’re struggling to pick just one photo or pattern, you can turn a selection of your favourite photos into a Personalised Phone Case. Featuring your besties, your other half, and all your nearest and dearest, a photo collage phone case means that you’ll have all your most treasured people close to you at all times. It takes the meaning of staying connected by phone to a new level and will also remind you of the beautiful bonds you share – and maybe encourage you to drop them a message to keep in touch too!

6. The Perfect Personalised Pair

Feel connected to someone special with this creative phone case design idea for two! Similar to the friendship bracelets of the past, create two personalised Phone Cases with a series of images taken at the same time or one photo that you can perfectly split into two that will look connected whenever you’re together. This is a great idea for couples, newlyweds, grandparents and long-distance besties.
