As for domestic orders, it's likely that any made-to-order pieces ordered BEFORE November 25th will get there by Christmas, after that it's hard to say, as it will be mainly dependent on how busy/backed up my 3D printing service gets.
All domestic ready-to-ship pieces ordered BY December 14th will likely be OK..**
Note that purple and red color options from this listing will be the smoother polished version of this material due to an update in the way Shapeways dye colors. All colors that I hand dye myself will still be the more coral-like/jean-like texture.
!! *(( Please read the entire listing before purchase. ))* !!
*This case will fit the iPhone 4S and all versions of the iPhone 4*
I wish it could be a faster turnaround, but post-3D printing I do all the manual varnishing etc on my own.
This is my new puzzle connection redesign! It's easier to take off, has a bigger camera hole to let in maximum light and has a reinforced mini puzzle front.
Inspired by the Steampunk genre which is a mesmerizing mix of style and technology this iPhone 4S / 4 case is a very durable and stylish alternative to mass produced cases on the market today. Designed by C Westbrook Designs in San Francisco (me) and produced by Shapeways (based in New York and the Netherlands).
This listing is for the iPhone 4/4S.
The photos of the case in black highlight the unique texture of this strong, lightweight and flexible 3D printed material (aka laser sintered polyamide aka nylon) which in addition to adding an extra layer of interest also adds traction to keep that coveted phone in your grip!
Insurance and tracking is included with the shipping and handling costs only for orders within the USA.
If you do not specify a color in the notes it will be shipped in black by default.
Currently available in black (a charcoal black/very dark dark grey), red (medium red-orange), purple and polished white but remember white is harder to keep clean with everyday use).
For color examples please go here, I'll take photos of actual cases soon:
Please note that *colors may vary since they are hand dyed and *texture may vary slightly, as they are individually printed. Each item is unique!
This case design has been tested on my iPhone 4, fits very snug and has withstood my abuse immaculately.
I designed it with ample room in the camera area, and for easy access to all buttons, ports and controls.
This case is made of Selective-Laser-Sintered 3D printed nylon in a process that is the ideal balance of craft and technology. Due to this process it has a jean-like/coral-like texture.
It is durable, lightweight and also a bit flexible. After being hand-dyed (by Shapeways or the designer herself) a coat of non-toxic clear varnish is added to have extra protection for the color.
**Each case is made to order and takes between 5-8 weeks to ship out.**
SHIPPING & HANDLING (the shipping speed is AFTER the 5-8 weeks it takes to complete your order):
In the United States: $5 First-Class USPS including tracking and insurance. It generally takes 2-4 business days once shipped.

Returns are on a case by case basis and only with a legitimate reason within 5 business days of receiving your item and must be unused. This is because I am an individual artist and not a large company and can only process so many orders and returns at a time, thanks for understanding! Buyer pays return shipping.
International customers are responsible for any additional fees incurred (i.e. customs fees).
*Sorry fellow Californians, but as I'm trying to grow my business (yay for local businesses!) I have to dot my I's and cross my T's so sales tax will be added for California residents: 8.25% out of San Francisco County and 8.5% within San Francisco County.
