Review: Gocustomized IPhone 5 case

Well hello to you my reader chums! A couple of weeks back a personalised gadget company, 'gocustomized' got in touch for the chance to design my own phone case, something I couldn't say no to! They sell an array of personalised phone cases for all different types of smart phones. I love the idea of anything personalised because it gives you the opportunity to put your own twist on anything and share special memories you've had. For the design, I wanted to include my favourite images/memories. After looking through my photos, there was just too many I'd like to use so my best friend suggested I made a collage and that's exactly what I did. I used the app 'pic collage' on my phone, where you can re-size images and move them around as you wish. Once the collage was finished, I uploaded it to the site, chose what background I preferred either black, white or clear (I picked white). Then I found out you could add text, a feature I got very excited about! Since the concept I had for the case was memories with my friends, I thought it'll be a cute idea to write a friendship quote. I chose 'Friends forever, never apart, maybe in distance, never in heart' because it shows whenever my friends are apart I know we'll be there for one another. To then alter the text, you could select the font and colour, where I went for a lovely lilac shade. After this, voila the case was complete! Here's some pictures of my design below:


Close up of the quote:

I'm extremely happy with how it turned out! I can now carry some of my favourite pictures with me and looking at the case always puts a smile of the face. 

Shipping - When I ordered the case, I was told it would arrive within a 5-7 day period. I received it on the 4-5 day after it had been dispatched which I was thrilled with! I got home from work and was like 'yaaay a present for me ;)'. Considering it's originally a Dutch company, the shipping was very swift!

Design - I'm obsessed with the overall look of my case! The writing turned out very clear and the photos just how I wanted. I love the slight glossy sheen over the top too.

Material - The case itself is such amazing quality that I didn't expect. It feels more expensive than it is, like it won't break and will last for a very long time. I was very impressed when I put it on my phone for the first time.

Price - Originally the price of my case would of been £14.95, which for the quality and service I received is rather reasonable. With the variety of cases on offer they range from about £14.95 - £24.95.

I hope you liked my design and enjoyed this post. To make your own phone case is quick, easy and fun with the whole deign process, letting your inner creativity out. 

In previous posts, I've mentioned how I'm going on a holiday with my best friends. After waiting 5 months from booking it, we're going tomorrow and I'M SUPER EXCITED! I'll be away for ten days,therefore I'll have no posts up, however I'm planning to do a summer lookbook and put up a post of all my holiday snaps when I'm home, so keep an eye out for those!

Thank you for reading <3
