In my last post I wrote about "knitted" iPad and iPhone covers that I created on Redbubble: they are made of hard plastic, but printed with very high-quality photos of knitted fabric, making them both practical and cool (if you are a knitter, anyway!).
Here are the iPhone cases from Redbubble (left) and from Zazzle (right), side by side. I think the cases are both pretty well represented in the photo. The image quality of the Redbubble one is definitely higher: detail is better and the colors are brighter.
However, the Zazzle case is a bit smaller and lighter, and a few dollars cheaper, than the Redbubble one, and it does have a matte finish, which is less slippery and seems a better choice (for a photo representing knitted fabric) than a shiny finish. Plus I noticed that on Zazzle there is also an iPhone case with an actual fabric back which can be printed with a photo. So I am thinking of also creating an account on Zazzle with "knitted" products. If anyone clearly prefers one or the other of the above cases, please let me know! It would help me decide whether a Zazzle account is worthwhile.
In any case (haha) I'm getting ready to go to VK Live in New York tomorrow, so any decision on a Zazzle account will have to wait for a few days. If you'll be there, let me know! Always fun to meet other knitters in person.
