Though raw wood is easier to use and faster to process, its long-term durability is poor. The first drop of water or smudge of dirt will cause discoloration that will forever be embedded in the wood. Raw unfinished woods also have the chance of splintering and expanding with changing weather conditions.
WE ARE DIFFERENT
We have designed our cases to stand up to a considerable amount of stress. Each case gets a special finish to bring out the beauty and 3-dimensional depth of the real wood.
We hand-seal the carefully selected wood on our smartphone cases with multiple coats of scratch-resistant and UV-stabilized finish. This multi-step process takes place over multiple days to further strengthen the wood.
We don’t cut corners.
We do all this work because it makes a better product, and we refuse to sacrifice quality in order to speed up production times.
A seamless high-impact rubber bumper protects all sides, corners, and even the screen when placing your phone face down. We have designed our custom wood phone cases with extra grip added along the sides ensuring an ergonomic feel in your hands that keeps you in complete control of your new ultra-slim device.

Will screen protectors work with your cases?
Yes they will.
Our cases do have a raised front lip which allows for lay-on-table protection and drop protection, however if you regularly carry your phone in a pocket or purse with keys or coins, it might be a good idea to protect your screen from the small scratches these could cause.
Are your cases water-proof?
Our wood phone cases are water resistant and will absolutely survive a prolonged dunk in water. Your phone however, might not.
Are your cases scratch proof?
Our cases are not immune to scratches, however even with heavy use, we doubt you will ever notice a scratch. We use an eco-friendly industrial strength finish on our cases that makes them very scratch resistant. If you take reasonable care of your phone case, it will look and feel brand new for years.
Will the colors fade or rub off?
No, the wood itself will not lose its beauty due to a UV-blocking additive in the cases protective finish. Unlike other companies who just print ink on top of wood, any additional colors we apply are actually embedded within the engraving so they are permanently sealed so they will never scratch or rub off.

The premium wood on your phone case is water resistant, so a good rub down with soap and water or any floor cleaner will do the job of cleaning any dirt or debris off your custom smartphone case.
