Everybody nowadays can have the latest phone from Apple, but not many are original when it comes to case design and style. No matter if you are a gadget loving geek, or just a girl who likes stylish things, you can have two options for making your iPhone look totally awesome and original: you can design your own iPhone case from scratch, or you can use some neat services from a specialized website. For making the design on your own, there are 5 crucial steps to follow. But first, be sure you have the necessary materials:
-a regular plastic iPhone case
-some good adhesive for plastic
1. Imagine and draw your design
Before you start creating anything, you must first have an idea about how the design will look. You can get inspiration from other cases and make customizations, or you can make something totally unique. Use drawing software and create the design. Shapes could be used along with text and beautiful colors.
2. Print the design on the printer paper
You can use some templates for your software to make sure the design will match the size of your case. For more fun, you can add some cuttings from various artworks, you can use markers to make the case more colorful or you could use glitter glue for a glossy appearance.
3. Make the Necessary Cuts
Use a craft knife or scissors for cutting the shape of the design. Make sure to leave it a little larger than needed, for tolerance. Draw the lines for the cutting with a pencil first.
4. Stick the printed paper on the plastic case
Use some type of glue (rubber cement or spray adhesive) for sticking the design and press it gently. Be sure the room is ventilated enough, as such glues can be toxic.
5. Allow time for drying the case
The work must be left for 24 to 48 hours to dry. Use the case on your phone and enjoy! If you need to get some design ideas, just visit http://www.bigcase.com.au
