Cases By Kate was started in 2013 by Kate at the age of 13. When the company first started, we sold interchangeable phone cases after developing successful prototypes. Kate and her mother, a graphic designer, have created hundreds of designs over the past 10 years and are always adding new ones so be sure to check back often!

Flash forward to 2024... Kate is currently settled in the DC area working in Media Communications after graduating from the University of Maryland's Smith Business School in 2022. Since partnering with Printful, our California fulfillment center, this business model has allowed us to expand products beyond phone cases to include a variety of apparel and home goods – all with our custom designs and shipped straight to our customers from our fulfillment center.

Our goal is, and will always be, to provide our customers affordable and attractive cases, apparel products and home goods with an assortment of unique and fun designs. Designs are trendy and stylish and we're always offering custom designs based on the time of year so be sure to check out our Seasonal categories. Or browse our numerous other categories to find unique patterns, popular quotes and sayings, animal designs, tie dye, marble and gemstone designs and more. We also love to make custom phone cases with your own photos, art and/or quotes. 


This is our No. 1 question! It's understandable too given the costly investment of purchasing smart phones. Our cases are tough and solidly constructed to fit your phone perfectly. They protect from scratches, dust, oil, and dirt and the smooth finish also makes them stylish and easy to hold.
