“N

¬†ow, Andy did you hear about this one?” Be a Man on the Moon….in more ways than one.
As a kid, I mostly decorated my bedroom with glow-in-the-dark stars and planets. Any kind of intergalactic day-glow trinkets I could spend my allowance on, I did. So much so, that when I turned my lights off at bedtime, my room was still almost fully illuminated by my custom solar systems. And no, I wasn’t on drugs.
Cut to adulthood; no more black light. My geeky obsessive has evolved into slightly more mature style choices.
Take a look at some of these lovely lunar goodies.

 

 

Finally, a phone case that gets me. We’re always looking for something that fits our rustic taste, but balancing that with tech-function, sleekness, and protection is a challenge. Recently we noticed my friend Mark Helf had the most beautiful wooden case. It wasn’t a cheesy print over some sort of rubber or plastic. It was real wood with a unique grain & texture. But what was most special about it was his business logo has been meticulously engraved onto the back. So gee, THIS sounds expensive. NOPE. It’s incredibly affordable at around $50 at Carved, a small growing shop based in Illinois.

So of course, we RAN to their website to get my hands on one. And we couldn’t resist using our gorgeous logo Ben designed. SCORE.

In order for our logo to be legible, we chose a softer Walnut. Check out the other sexy wood grains they offer.

Don’t have a logo? Don’t worry. They have a large archive of stock-designs you can have engraved. Inlays, traveler cases (think Otter Box, and skins…they have them all. Just $29?! Here’s a few of our favorites:

I gotta say, my favorite part of receiving this case was the hand-written Thank You note the staff left for me. PRICELESS.

Carved offers cases for Apple, Samsung, and Google products. GO NUTS!
