A few weeks ago, we received an email from UNCOMMON, the first personalized iPhone case company, who told us we could design a case in minutes via their website (www.getuncommon.com). They told us it would be delivered in a few days so, we figured, sure let's give this a shot and review the entire process.
For starters, we uploaded new art. The site requires you to upload a JPG image that is at least 2000 x 2000 pixels. This ensures that your art is of a high enough resolution and will not come out blurry or pixelated.
If your image is smaller than the requested resolution, you will receive an error message and will be unable to move on to the next step in the process.
Once the image is uploaded, you will be asked to rotate and resize your image. You'll have to make sure your image falls within the dotted print area guide.
When you're happy with the image, you simply click, "Add to Cart," and purchase your newly created design. Cases range in price from $19.95 to $39.99.
The site offers four different case styles:
The Deflector is the slimmest fit and costs $34.95.
The Capsule offers the most protection and costs $39.95.
The Gallery is a soft grip case, which sells for $34.95.
The Loop provides an antenna shield and goes for $19.95.
Take a look at our finished product! We ordered the Capsule for ultimate protection and we found the process to be very easy and we completed it in three steps. To top it off, we're glad to be sporting our Disarray Magazine branded iPhone case.
Here are few more images of cool designs by other users:
