Monogrammed Otterbox Case- A Classic Prep Review

Update (3/7/13): Seven months after I received this case a piece of the bottom cracked and fell off. I love the colors, design, and quality of the monogram however I do feel that a case of this price should last longer.  Furthermore, I wish the company would stand by their product regardless of policy. When I contacted the company they reiterated their policy which states: “Case provides added protection against bump and shock. This case is NOT protective against water. Lipstick Shades offers a 90 day from purchase warranty on your personalized Otterbox Case. We do not handle Otterbox Warranty issues, including breakage, beyond 90 days from purchase and will not be able to replace your monogrammed Otterbox case for any reason.


      To function as a woman and Mama in today's society I need my iPhone. It is embedded into my daily routine to the point of ridiculousness.  Sad as it is, without an iPhone I am but a shell of a person and only function at a basic level. I rely on my phone, like many of you, to be my memory, alarm clock, camera, timer, GPS, radio, and day planner. Beyond daily functions, I also use my iPhone to read blogs and check social networking sites during late night feeding sessions or moments of boredom. Unfortunately, my new little man has a penchant for the iPhone as well. His greedy little fingers love to hold my phone more than any of his carefully chosen toys. Due to my complete dependence on this device it is very important for me to protect it. The Otterbox has a reputation for being one of the heartier iPhone cases on the market, so when I came across the monogrammed Otterbox cases, made by Classic Prep Monograms, I knew I was on to something wonderful. Quality protection, style, and a customized monogram for my beloved iPhone? A great thing I say!

    Classic Prep Monograms create a variety of monograms on Otterbox Commuter phone cases to fit your personal style. They offer patterns such as Bloom, Indonesia, Chevron, Union Jack Prepster and many more. You also choose the colors, the font, and the accent style. So many things to decide - it was so much fun! I chose the Moroccan pattern and love it.

      When I received the case I immediately rushed to put my phone into its new fabulous home. The case is two layers of protection. A harder polycarbonate outside and a stretchy silicone inside. This double layer system is what is supposed to provide great protection for your phone. I went ahead and set out to test this case with what I call the, "Baby test." I went ahead and handed over my phone to Weston. I even let him chew on it. The phone was perfectly safe and the monogram design itself is permanent, with no risk of scratching or peeling.
     My only complaint is that the screen protector included with the case is not so fabulous (No fault of Classic Prep Monograms). Some little bubbles were impossible to get out with lots of smoothing. That being said I'm not a big screen protector user so I just threw that part away.
 Its important to note that while I am obsessed with my iPhone, there are many of you out there that have smart phones that are just as cool (well almost, ha ha). This product is available for you too. Classic Prep Monogram offers monogrammed Otterboxes for the Samsung Galaxy 3, HTC Evo, HTC inspire, and the Blackberry Torch (9800/9810).

 These cases are $68.00 and can be purchased on the Classic Prep Monograms website . A bit pricey, but totally worth it for a custom, stylish, Otterbox case!

    Today, I have a giveaway for all Moms, women, and friends that would like their own special Monogrammed Otterbox Case! Please enter in the rafflecopter below!

  55. Hi --

    Getting ready to purchase a monogrammed iphone case like the one you have here, but wanted to know how you feel about it now.

    Has it chipped any in the almost 3 months you've had it?!

    1. Emily,

      I really love my case. There has been no chipping or rubbing off of the design at all and my boy regularly tosses it around and chews on it. My only complaint is that the otterbox itself is two pieces the inner part is silcone like and if you dont have it just right you kind of have to play with it to get the edges perfect. Does that make sense? The design is really pretty and I have gotten so many compliments. Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

      Delete
  56. This is great. Usually the protective iPhone cases I've been looking at on http://www.anchorcase.com are super dull.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Don't buy this! Mine cracked after having it for only three months, and apparently the personalization voids the OtterBox warranty. They said it actually decreases the integrity of the plastic, something I wish I'd know! I wish I had never spent so much money, something I did because I thought I was purchasing OtterBox quality.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh no Emily I am sorry to hear that. Did you try contacting the monogram company directly? Perhaps they could help you?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Do you know if you can send in an otterbox you already have and then they monogram it for you?
