Exciting day in iPhone land with the official announcement of the iPhone4. Steve Jobs has “wowwed” us with the fancy features including the new retina display and HD video. Relevant to what we do is that iPhone4 is 24% thinner than the 3G. This allows us to make our case thinner. We have been prototyping based on projections and are ready to release our product immediately.
We are REALLY excited about our new case. Its really thin at less than .5″ thick overall. It will add less than 1/16″ to the thickness of the phone and due to a new feature will be even stronger than before. We have the same metal bezel design as our 3G case and have successfully made prototypes already.
We are most excited to offer special introductory pricing starting at $49!!!! We are accepting deposits immediately to secure your iPhone4 Grove case.

GroveMade.com Its official! We just launched our new company Grove yesterday. Grove is a partnership between myself and Joe Mansfield of Engrave. Our first product is a laser engraved bamboo iphone case!
Our site is essentially a place where you can make your own case. Enjoy browsing the artist series or upload your own artwork. Or simply get a blank case. You can select one of 3 bamboo body colors and 7 bezel colors. Know that these cases aren’t getting made in some sweatshop overseas. Were making them in my shop!
After months of top secret R&D, we’ve perfected our bamboo iphone cases - and we’d like to celebrate with you. The Grove launch party will go down during the open studio night at Towne Storage (17 SE 3rd #502) on May 1st 6pm-10pm.
We’ll be giving a bamboo iphone case away every hour and the winners can choose artwork to be laser engraved on the spot. There will be new laser engraved artwork on display by Jolby & Friends and we’ll be pouring Vortex IPA from Fort George Brewery. If you’re in Portland on the 1st, stop by with a glass and friends.
See ya there!
