Everyone and their dog has an iPhone these days. Set yours apart with a customizable case for your iPhone 4! We've found five great options for adding a personal touch to your iPhone, no matter what your style.
One of the hottest spots online to create a custom iPhone 4 case is Uncommon. Offering a variety of customizable options, we love the Gallery -- upload your own photo or artwork, or choose from the hip artwork collections offered by Uncommon to create a custom hard case. What makes the Gallery by Uncommon unique is that the customizable piece of the case can be taken out easily and replaced with your newest custom creation, leaving the backbone of the case attached. Custom cases available for $35.

If there's one company that knows a thing or two about personalization, it's Zazzle. You'll be amazed at the dozens and dozens of customizable iPhone 4 cases, all separated by category -- everything from argyles to polka dots to florals.

Something else that puts Zazzle on our top five list -- it only takes three to five days for your case to be made. Prices vary for custom cases on Zazzle, but most are in the $40 range.
This wouldn't be a list about custom products without a mention of everyone's favorite spot to get lost in products that you can have created to your exact specifications -- Etsy! Some of our favorites are from Etsy seller PencilShavingsPaper -- this sweet Whimsical Scallop iPhone 4 Case comes in multiple colors and is one of many that you can have personalized with your name or monogram.
