Disclosure: I received a free phone case and will get a percentage of any sales from the links on my sidebar and within this post, but all opinions to follow are my own.
You've probably noticed that I don't do a ton of product reviews and promotions here and I've never run advertising. However, Uncommon got my attention several years ago by offering me a free custom iPhone phone case before one of the BlogHer conferences.
I hadn't heard from them for a while, but in the interim I got an upgraded iPhone and happily paid for a new case from them that matched my old one with its Average Jane doodle printed on the back.
When they recently emailed to ask if I would be interested in their new affiliate program, I didn't hesitate to say yes, which is why you see their ad on the right-hand sidebar there.
What do I like about them?
- Full color, customized graphics. They'll print anything you want on your iPhone, iPod (including Touch) or Macbook case.
- Durability. My phone hits the floor more than I'd like to admit and the case does a fantastic job of protecting it. My iPhone 4 case eventually ended up with a few tiny chips around the bezel, but the main part of the case and—most importantly—the phone, were both unharmed.
- Fit. I've had a lot of phone cases that were just a tiny bit off or slightly loose, but these are exactly right.
- Designer offerings. If you don't want to do your own artwork, you can choose a ready-made option from one of dozens of featured designers and design-oriented brands.
This time around, I decided it would be fun to get a case printed with a close-up photo of one of my cats' coats. I'm going to the BlogPaws Conference* next month and it seemed like the perfect accessory for that. I'd originally planned to use tabby Dr. Jones as my subject until we adopted our foster cat, Kaylee (née Tinkerbell). She won out because of her beautiful torbie pattern.
If you're in the market for a nice case for your Apple product, I highly recommend Uncommon. If you see me at a conference or elsewhere, I'll be happy to show you my phone case. They look even nicer in person than in a photo.
