    Hello peeps!

    I received my clear case in the mail, yesterday. I opted for a generic one from China, rather than IMAK (or OP) brand because I didn't want their logos etc. on the back. My brother and I both have the OPO, so to avoid mix-ups I decided to customize mine a bit.

    I sketched a quick template for the OPO and photoshopped an insert for the back. Here are the pics!

    What you will need:
    1. OPO (just saying)
    2. Clear case
    3. Custom template or cut-out design
    4. Black and white or color printer (I have not tried this on sticker, glossy or photo paper)
    5. Box cutter, knife or scissors (remember children, safety first)

    Some teasers for you guys. The Deftones one is a request from a die-hard fan (@Dexter Morgan). I'm still working out some sizing kinks, though.

    If you want a custom back let me know, and I'll do my best to help you out.

    Please post your request on the thread, as there are active members who can help you out!

    That's a great idea, artwork is beautiful. I got a grey case coming my way, silicone, hoping it act as a shock absorber.

    This case really doesn't have much functional use aside from offering protection to the back and the option for customization. It's a good temp case until I find one I really like. The top and bottom are exposed but have a lip on the corners, and this case sits almost flush with the screen so there is no protection from drops. I accidentally got a tiny scratch on the original sandstone back, from something in my purse. So this is a good solution for those with a damaged backplate also.

    I purchased it on Ali Express for around $3 but it was completely generic. I saw the same one for around $1.50 just yesterday, also. The packaging was a small bubble wrapped envelope, and it was in a plastic bag with 2 pieces of foam inside.
