Let’s be real: Shopping for your laptop/iPad/iPhone sleeve is usually not uber exciting or something you really put much stylistic thought into. How much money we plop down for these gadgets, however, makes buying a protector case pretty much a necessity. If you, like me, have historically gone for whatever was black, on sale (it’s hard to buy something super pricey after dropping over a grand on a Macbook, am I right?), and are consequently slightly embarrassed to whip out your tech case in public, there’s a site you might want to check out.
Snupped offers fashionistas the chance to make their electronics’ cases super stylish and an expression of themselves. Their products include laptop cases (known as Spacesuits, USD $49.00), tablet cases (Spacebooks, USD $49.00), and smart-phone cases (Mini, USD $19.00), which you can choose the size of based on your specific model. The cool part is you can put whatever design you want on them. Basically, you can choose one of their preset options, from categories like Pattern, Urban, Artsy Fartsy, Abstract, or Photography, or you can upload a design of your own choosing/making/stealing/whatever and they’ll put that onto the case for you. The laptop Spacesuit is made of tarpaulin vinyl, which is waterproof and makes the design colours pop out 50% more than on a neoprene case. This is fashion meets function 2.0, yo. The Spacesuits also come with an optional handle so you can turn it into a portfolio/document/purse when you’re not using it for your laptop (or even when you are) and you would never even realize it wasn’t a bag to begin with. The company has a Pinterest and Instagram where you can check out how some seriously stylish techies have been rocking theirs and gather inspiration for how you could rock yours.
