Mr Nutcase Personalised Photo Phonecase Review

Posted on

I'm feeling rather nautical

I was lucky enough to recently be selected to choose a Mr Nutcase phone case to review.  They could really not have timed this better as I had, the day before, upgraded my mobile phone.  Did I want to accessorize my new phone?  Yes please!  Perfect!

I popped on over to the Mr Nutcase website ( to see what they were all about and to choose my design.  I have an iPhone 5C so picked these designs to browse.  You can also upload a photo, collage or even your own design to have printed on the case!  This is a fantastic idea so you can truly have a personalised unique case just for you!  I did ponder over uploading a photo, but this anchor design really caught my attention. I browsed the website three times throughout the day before making my mind up (just to make sure I was sure) and I still came back to the anchor.  That was that settled then!

The website is easy to use and the checkout process quick and simple.  Exactly what you want from a website nowadays.  No fuss.  Delivery was very impressive – it came the next day!  I wasn’t expecting it so quickly, especially as they print the designs onto the phone cases so would have been happy waiting a few days knowing this, but even better!  Next day delivery is always a bonus especially if it's free too!

As you can only see the graphic design on the website, it was a little hard to imagine what it would look like on the actual case.  There are no pictures of their ready made designs on the phone cases, so you have to just picture this in your head and trust it will look good.  I was slightly worried how it would look on the actual case, but I didn’t need to be.

The phone case looked fantastic!  I chose a leather flip around style which they can currently only print on one side.  This didn’t bother me much as you’re only going to see one side when your phone is on a table.  The navy and white stripe with red anchor print looks excellent in real life!  I was very pleased with my choice.  It’s the perfect summer nautical theme.  Ahoy matey!

The flip over part is magnetic, much more convenient compared to velcro and a popper which I have previously had.  The phone is also inserted into a protective hard plastic case so it feels amazingly secure (much needed with a toddler!).
