I fabricated my own protective cases for DIMPLE.IO by a laser cutter machine.
Why don't you fab yours by yourself ?
- Buy a protective case for your Android device on the Internet, or at stores in your city.

- Measure width and height of the case.
- With Adobe illustrator, make an ".ai" file at RGB-color-mode and "Art board" at the measured size in the ".ai" file.
