4 Tips on how to put a picture on a phone case

Get ideas and inspiration

Before you fully start, you should be aware of the final result you want to get from your phone case. To reach that point, you first need inspiration. There are a few ways you can personalize your case:

  • Personal graphics, drawing, and creative photography.
  • Personal photos of loved ones, and pets, as well as memorable moments
  • A word or phrase that has meaning to you
  • Colors, patterns, or images that reflect your own style
  • An uploaded picture that reflects an interest, personality trait, or fandom

As soon as you are able to narrow down your custom phone case design to 1 of these five themes, it will be much easier for you to find inspiration and resources to create your own creation.

Collect and create your photos and resources

Make sure you have all the images you want to use ready to go. I recommend that you have a few options to see which one best suits the size of your phone case.

Please note that for best quality output, the image you want to upload should be of high resolution, the appropriate size, and less than 3 MB in size. If you are using a low-resolution image, the end result may appear pixelated.

The ideal photo for a custom phone case should be high resolution (300 dpi), at least 1000px x 1500px, and have a file size of less than 3MB.

Select the right phone case type

Before you can start making a phone case, you first need to choose between the slim and lightweight snap-on case or the armored case with a protective rubber coating for added protection.

Tips and design ideas

You should be thrilled with the outcome of your first custom case design experience, so here are a few more tips to help:

When incorporating text into your design, consider a solid color background or a minimal pattern to prevent the text from blending too much into the design. A simple background will make your text stand out.

When uploading an image, remember to resize it if necessary to ensure it fits the size of the box perfectly. Otherwise, you may be left with a white border around the image.

Consider choosing colors, patterns, or designs that complement your overall look and style.

Why put pictures on a phone case?

Phone cases are a famous accessory, and most smartphone owners will want one for protection, fashion, or a bit of both. Have fun creating a personalized case with your picture for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
