Phones aren’t just phones anymore. They’re part of us. They’re important, they’re delicate, and they’re personal. We have them on us at all times so it seems outright wrong to protect them with some garish, or worse, a generic case that says nothing about the person carrying it. A meticulously designed phone deserves an elegant case that is unique without looking like a circus attraction. Look no further than SmugMug’s newest addition to our print product line.
We’re now offering phone cases that can be customized with your favorite images giving you an unbeatable look that will make your friends jealous and keep your phone a little safer all at once.
Our new customizable phone cases are available for the Galaxy S7 and iPhone SE, 6, 6s, 6+, 6s+, and even 7 and 7+. The cases come in two styles: Slim and Tough. The slim case is sleek and thin, keeping your phone from unwanted dings or scratches without adding extra bulk. The Tough case is more rugged using a thin, scratch resistant plastic shell with an inner silicon insert for added protection for those who need a sturdier case.
Custom phone cases start at $25. You can order your case now through your SmugMug site by logging in, uploading or selecting a photo, then clicking BUY and then THIS PHOTO, and start customizing your phone case. Those with Portfolio and Business accounts: don’t forget to add the Phone Cases to your Pricelist and set the prices at your desired price or markup. Phone cases are available for Pricelists fulfilled from Bay Photo, EZPrints, and WHCC.
When designing your phone case, there are a couple important things to remember. First, your photos must meet the size requirements. The image selected must be 900×1600 pixels or you won’t even be shown the option to add it to a phone case. Also, make sure to pay attention to the camera position and the cropping of your image. You don’t want to accidentally cut out an important part of the photo.
Ordering your own case is a piece of cake, but if you’ve never purchased printed products from SmugMug before, see how below.
1. Upload or select the photo from your SmugMug site that you would like to use to customize your new phone case. Keep in mind that your photo must be 900×1600 pixels or larger to be suitable for the phone cases. If your photo is under those size specifications, you won’t have the option to customize a phone case. Once you’ve selected the photo, click the green BUY button, and then click THIS PHOTO.
2. Your photo will appear on the left while a number of product options will appear on the right. At the very bottom, so long as your photo meets the size requirements, you’ll see a brand new category—phone cases!
3. After making your selection, you’ll be able to make sure the crop is correct for your phone case. Simply drag the cut-out of the phone case or resize to make sure the parts you want printed are within the gray box. Make sure the cut-out for the phone’s camera doesn’t cover a part of the photo that you want to show. When you’re done cropping, click ADD TO CART.
The case will be saved to your shopping cart for when you’re ready to checkout. Then all you’ll have to do is sit tight and wait for the coolest phone case you or your friends have ever laid eyes on to show up at your doorstep.
How’s that for some Hotline Bling?
