Personalization doesn't ever get old for me. Everyone likes to have something unique to them, and that usually means having an initial or some form of your name to distinguish your things from others. I'm no different, and wanted to share 5 fun ways to personalize your tech.
Alphabet iPhone Cases: Created through Jessica Hische's Daily Drop Cap project, these cases are each decorated with a different letter from the alphabet. The cases would be perfect for typeface enthusiasts. I also just really like having my belongings stamped with my initials.
Electronic Bookplates: I came across this really awesome DIY project on Design Sponge. Leaving a book at a restaurant or on a plane can be one of the most annoying things ever. Now that so many of us use tablets as our books, among many other features, it's a bigger deal than losing a paperback. Borrowing the nameplate concept from paperbacks, Max teaches you how to create a nameplate for your devices' screens so that if they do happen to be left somewhere, your name is the first thing everyone sees. It's also just a cool customization idea.
Mac App Icon Sets: Our desktop icons are something we stare at on a daily basis and click on multiple times a day. Why not customize them if you can? A lot of sites out there have icons sets you can buy. I don't personalize all my icons, but like a little variety when it comes to my chat apps.
Android Icon Packs: Similar to Mac icons, you can also customize your Android phone. The first step is to get a Launcher, which will enable you to change your icons and customize your settings. Once your Launcher is set up, you can download Icon packs and choose a set that you like to customize the way icons look on your phone.
Personalized Cases: Another easy way to personalize is to do it with sleeves and cases. Etsy always has a wide variety of customized cases. Two of my favorite ones come from LoveyDoveyCreations for iPad sleeves and rabbitsmile for both iPhone and iPad cases.
