About this Product
Please read the entire listing before purchase!
This listing is for BLACK, for colors and white go to this listing: http://shpws.me/ngpH
!! ONLY buy the WHITE in this listing if you're going to dye it yourself, the non-polished white is very hard to clean.
Reminiscent of Victorian filigree, this unique Designer iPhone 5 case is a durable, stylish and a more eco friendly alternative to mass produced cases on the market today.
*Please note that I'm keeping the price of this listing lower than my Etsy case listings due to the case not having varnish for extra color protection. I highly recommend at least one coat of non-toxic polyurethane varnish (or something similar) so that the color can last through everyday use for an extended time.*
Take a look at the video (also above) to see how to easily varnish the case yourself: http://youtu.be/eS5mp18KZrY
Designed by C Westbrook Designs in San Francisco and produced by Shapeways.
This puzzle style case will fit the iPhone 5.
Color options are currently a charcoal-like textured black (unvarnished via this site), polished blue, polished purple, polished red, polished pink and polished white (though keep in mind using a white case every day may get it dirty, with that in mind I have the price lower for white).
The photos of the case in black highlight the unique coral-like texture of the strong and flexible material (aka laser sintered polyamide aka nylon) which in addition to adding an extra layer of interest also adds traction to keep that coveted phone in your grip! *Since each case is printed individually the texture can vary (scroll through photos above for an example).
I've tried out this 3D print on my iPhone 5 (as pictured), and it fits well. My previous case for my iPhone 4 withstood my abuse very well, the color (after varnishing to protect it) wears much like leather.
I designed it for easy access to all buttons, ports and controls. In the iPhone 5 version of my case I've designed the front to taper down into the screen area so that it's easier to swipe to the edges.
The colors available are what Shapeways currently offers.
*Only the black cases I sell on my Etsy.com listings have a clear varnish added for extra protection of the color and are tried on my iPhone 5 prior to shipment. However, I'm going to only have a limited amount with limited colors each month on Etsy since dyeing and varnishing is quite time intensive.
*White cases I'm offering in the polished white, since it's easier to clean than the textured white. Still be aware that the white is very white, and that anything with color or dye that comes into contact with it may not be easy to remove.
To avoid any confusion let me clarify that if you buy a case from this store you are ordering directly from Shapeways who manufactures / 3D prints it. I can not cancel or change any orders made from this site. If you ordered a case from this listing please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns that are unrelated to the design aspect.
