Create a custom iphone or ipad case from your child’s artwork! custom iphone case

Do you have a box full of old crumpled drawing that your kids have proudly brought home to you from school? I do! In fact, I have several boxes full! There comes a point though when you wonder what to do with all of those carefully doodled treasures, especially since they’re packed away. Why not bring them out to enjoy? This Mother’s Day is the perfect time to bring your child’s drawing to the light again with a custom iphone case from I recently has the opportunity to review a custom cell phone case and I am really excited to show it to you! 

My daughter presented a pretty drawing of a ship sailing away on a cloud to me and I knew it would make a sweet little case for an iphone. I wish that I still used an iphone so I could have this case but my daughter put it on hers and she LOVES it. The hard case is made from  premium impact resistant polymers and has a nice high-quality look and feel. It isn’t flimsy at all and the material is a nice thickness. custom iphone case

I am really impressed with how my daughter’s drawing turned out, the colors stayed true to the original and the graphic is crisp and clean looking. Uncommon uses an exclusive 3D TATT® (Thermo-Active Transdermal Technology) printing process to transfer your image onto the case. They explain it to be much like how the ink in a tattoo is imprinted deep into the surface. This process creates a super durable and long-lasting case with a high resolution for a gorgeous finish. 

Our case fits my daughter’s 3GS iphone perfectly and we really like how easy it is to put the case on with the slide together pieces. The photo is even printed in the crease and connecting piece for a very nice finish. Her phone has a stylish, clean look now and she is already planning on what she wants to draw for her next case!

The iphone case customization process is so simple when you use Uncommon’s easy template and design tool. You’ll be able to create a case for these devices:

iPhone 5 (7 case styles)
iPhone 4/4S (4 case styles)
iPod Touch 5th gen
iPod touch 4th gen
iPad retina / 2

Creating a custom iPhone case is easy!

To get started, just upload a Jpeg photo that you would like to use. You can either scan a drawing and upload or use a photo. For the best results on a custom iphone case, you’ll want to use a photo that’s about 1900 x 1200 pixels. The Design Tool has options to rotate and scale your photo or drawing, for the perfect fit. You can also add text in several different colors, sizes and fonts. Use fonts to add a quote, date or even a big bold monogram to your case!

If you don’t have a photo, Uncommon also has a large gallery of attractive designer images that you can use to give your case some personality. It’s a fun process that anyone can do!
