.99 iPhone Case! Now I’ve seen it all.

On September 17, 2009

 Case-mate has gone green, and offering the first "recession" case for customers.

They have released the $.99 cardboard "recession" case.  No, I’m not kidding, a .99 cardboard case.  You can also get the free "Sharpie Script" personalization.  Thats right, they will even personalize it for you by some poor employee who’s job it is to sit around and inscribe your case by hand with a Sharpie.  You can even buy these things for a discount if you buy 10.  Your cost for 10?  $7.99.
