Gadget cases have become such a popular gadget accessory and they are often the first things people buy when they get a new phone or tablet. Case-Mate is one of the leading providers of gadget accessories and they specialize in trendy cases, as well as custom iPhone cases. The company, established in 2006, started from a simple desire to provide classically-styled and unique products for their customers.
Their website looks very streamlined and appealing. The products are neatly categorized and the site displays high-quality product images. Case–Mate carries several types of gadget cases for iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, Kindles and other tablets. They feature several collections with different themes and regularly update the styles. The current collections available in the site feature the brand’s signature classical designs and also a variety of very trendy and very fashionable selections. Prices range at around $10 – $45 for the simple styles and the more extravagant ones cost around $50 – $150 (or more). Custom cases, called the ‘I Make My Case’ line, start at just $35.
Case-Mate’s design studio is one of the most sophisticated design platforms we’ve seen in our reviews. They have a wonderful design application fashioned with a modern interface that makes styling the case very easy as well as enjoyable. The studio is equipped with several easy to navigate tools that will help you apply different design layouts to the case. However, they don’t have a clipart library so images should be uploaded from your computer or from a photo service. You can easily zoom, rotate and adjust angles of the images.
Standard shipping on all US orders are free. In-stock or non-customized items are ready to ship the same business day. Customized cases require 2- 10 days production times and they are also non-returnable and non-exchangeable.
Overall, Case-Mate does not just deliver highly in terms of the quality of their product, they also have a nice website with an excellent design studio. The style options for customization can still be expanded- more layouts and a clipart library would make the site and their services even better.
