Coveroo FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions



About Coveroos?

Coveroos are covers, cases and journals that are customized just for you. We support all major phone brands including iPhone, Blackberry, HTC, Motorola and Samsung, as well as electronic devices such as the iPad, iPod and Kindle. You pick a design, and then we use a unique patent pending technology to apply the design to a new case or replacement cover for your existing phone. When you get your Coveroo in the mail you simply pop off your old cover and snap on your Coveroo.

Unlike other customization products, Coveroo uses laser engraving technology and a HighColor process to give personal electronic devices a high-quality design that won't ever fade, peel or rub off. See Some Samples.

How does Coveroo work?

  1. You pick a design. Choose from thousands of designs featuring your favorite stars, artists, shows, brands, and teams. Can’t decide? Order a few!
  2. We make it and send it to you. Tell us your phone model and we go to work! Choose premium Laser Engraving or our signature HighColor process. We customize a brand new cover, battery door, face plate, or back plate, and send it to you lickety-split.
  3. It's yours! Cases and covers easily snap right on to your device. Simply pop off your plain ol’ cover, battery door, face plate, or back plate. Then snap on your Coveroo. Whoohoo! A star is born. (Friends jealous? Don’t worry – we’ve got designs for them too!)

How do I know my Coveroo will fit my phone?

Just pick the make and model of your phone and we’ll make sure it fits. We stock replacement covers and cases from major phone manufacturers and apply the designs of your choice. That means your Coveroo exactly matches the face plate, battery door, back plate, or cover that came with your phone. (Only better, of course, because it matches you, too.) We’re so sure you’ll like your Coveroo that we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.*

Are they hard to apply?

Nope! Anyone can snap on a new Coveroo in seconds. Just pop off the old case or battery door and snap on the new one. They’re so easy to switch out that you can change them to match your mood, the weather, your horoscope, game day, you name it.

How are Coveroos different from skins or stickers?

Stickers wear out. Skins fade and slip off. A Coveroo is more of a BFF. Coveroos look crisp and clear - they won’t peel, fade or wear out.

How are Coveroos made?

We use two completely unique technologies (that we dreamed up!) to customize a replacement cover for your phone that will look great on your phone. Choose from LaserEngraved or HighColor design processes and get the design of your choice permanently emblazoned on a manufacturer-made replacement phone cover or case.

Our experienced craftspeople apply each design by hand, just for you, here at our San Francisco headquarters. Each Coveroo is designed to swap in for your phone’s original case or battery door and to make your ho-hum device look waaaay more attractive.

How can I use a Coveroo?

Coveroos make great gifts for guys, gals, teammates, classmates, clubmates, grads, coworkers — you name it! Everyone loves ‘em. Choose from thousands of designs featuring your favorite stars, teams, shows, and characters, or upload your own photo, message, artwork, or logo for a completely customized gift.

  • Gift giving? Solved! Put your loved ones’ favorite stars or ball players on a phone cover for a unique gift.
  • Build team spirit. Share school mascots or company logos with members of your club, class, team, or business.
  • Make your phone match you. Get a bunch of Coveroos and put some personality into your phone. Swap ‘em out every day!
