Oh Yeah Oh yeah Oh Yeah!*

The Kase

Launched in France in 2012, The Kase is an international brand specialising in fashionable and customised mobile phone and tablet accessories. The Kase believes in being unique (or UNIK) and this has defined their brand concept of offering exclusive collections created by their community designers and in-store personalisation.

There are currently TWO The Kase stores in Singapore; one at ION Orchard and the other at Parkway Parade.

I visited the ION Orchard Branch located at #B2-27 (the link to Wheelock Place is close by).

Random: Walked up and thank the uncle who was mopping the floor. He gave me a stunned look at first but smiled back when he realised I said 'thank you'. Totally made my day. Be kind. :)

Once inside, be dazzled by rows and rows of ready-made phone casing designs - some specially designed and drawn by well-known artists, others came in special prints and were made of special materials like wood and genuine leather.

The Customization Workshop - The Kase ID

The most popular section in the shop.

Customising of casings can be done with The Kase ID, which offers you the chance to customise most smartphone or tablet cases. Each boutique has a customisation workshop consisting of a high-performance industrial machine, where you can see your UNIK creation come true.

Here, you can customise your casing in 15 minutes!
These casings are Scratch-proof.

It was full house at the workshop area even on a weekday afternoon.

To facilitate the customisation process, there is more than one way to access your images.

You can access your facebook account from one of the touch screens to choose your picture. Here, you can also preview and add in ONE-LINE text.

METHOD 2.Alternatively, you can connect to the wifi with your gadgets and send your chosen image to the indicated email address

Last but not least, you can use their in-house gadget to access and choose your image.

Come Prepared with your picture first.

TIP: You are only allowed to print ONE image on the casing if you doing it at The Kase boutique. 

Lesson learnt: 
Caren (another blogger friend I bumped into on the same day) was so smart because prior to her visit, she tried and measured the cover online, did a photo collage with photoshop and uploaded her collage on her facebook. All she had to do was to send her image, validate the preview and send it for printing so she got her casing really quickly.

As for me, I spent some time on my phone photo-editing app 'Photo wonder' doing collage with pictures chosen from my phone: one with Bubble Leong smiling, one with mum, one with my favourite boy and one with Ang Zir zir... All my favourite loves are going to be on the casing!

Unfortunately, the collage didn't align with the size of the casing (you can tell from the picture below).
There was a big empty space.

This was the preview shown on the screen!

In the end, I added my name with the Text function to balance up the space and the images.

Thank you Louis for helping me with the customisation!
Louis here allowed me to take my time to do up my collage. He even took initiative to adjust and align my image for me before we sent it for printing.

Thanks to him and his brilliant suggestions, I have a casing which I like very much in the end!

Here's the machine to ink the images onto the casings.
It can print up to a few phone casings at a time!

Customising my Ipad Air Casing

While waiting, I prepared my design for my iPad Air. 
This time, I chose only ONE image; one I really really like.
One which is designed by Darren Ang (Method86).

The image is going to be printed on a transparent, silicon casing. 
I can't wait to see my casings!!!


My gadgets look brand new!

Your iPhone 5s

Oh yes before I forgot to highlight this other thing:
I realise that I have to use the original cable to charge the phone because the tip of my 3-in-1 cable was slightly bigger than the opening of the casing.

Full Plug in with my Original iPhone 5 cable:

I have to take out the casing when using the 3-in-1 cable to charge my phone:

So take note when charging  your phone.
