Cameron Christian Owner, President-CEO, WUDN. After 25 Years in the corporate world, I am creating my own destiny. I bought the business so we can continue delighting our customers with real wood products that are beautiful and functional. Follow us on Instagram or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do a little product development every day. This morning, I was inspired by an article on the Interwebs about "states rights". Interesting read, but not the point. The article had a cool sidebar about the history of states that had to fight for their right to exist like California successfully did before it became a State in 1850. We wanted to build a case (from beautiful Mahogany of course) that would honor California and the people that live there. The flag is laser engraved from a piece of real Mahogany - handcrafted in the USA from locally sourced wood.
The Historic Bear Flag originally raised at Sonoma, CA on June 14, 1846, by a group of American settlers in revolt against Mexican rule. The flag was designed by William Todd on a piece of new unbleached cotton. The star imitated the lone star of Texas. ... The word, "California Republic" was placed beneath the star and bear.
Bear Flag Museum has a great history of the flag and of early California. Did you know there was a "Bear Flag Revolt" that would have created a full country independent of the United States? Me neither. But it was not to be. The bear flag revolt only lasted 31 days during the summer of 1846. And here is a collection of some of the coolest and most original bear flag art I have seen anywhere.
Not everyone believes this flag represents the values of modern day California. But that's OK. We think it's beautiful, and will look even better on the back of your phone.
We're only making 100 of these cases, so they're going to go fast. Sorry I can't sell the first one; I put it on my X.
Pictured is the iPhone X version of the California Republic Case - but you can order any of our supported models including the iPhone 6, 6s, 7, 8, and all Plus phones, or the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S8, S8 Plus, or Note 8.
Yes, every case is covered in real wood, hand selected by our team for beauty and uniqueness. Wood options for most all of our cases include Mahogany, Black Walnut, Carmalized Bamboo or Aromatic Cedar.
The slim-case fits your phone perfectly. No blockage of the camera port. Sure grip textured sides to enhance your grip and easy access to all ports and buttons.
Yes, our slim-cases have a slightly raised lip around the front edge to prevent your phone screen from touching surfaces when placed facedown. Of course, you should always add a glass screen protector.
Yes, WUDN slim cases do not interfere with Qi wireless charging for iPhone 8 and X models or for Samsung Galaxy phones. Just be sure to center the Qi receiver in the middle of your charging pad.
Yes, the phone camera is recessed behind the camera cutout. Although the camera is not covered, because that would result in potato quality photos, the camera should be safe from typical drops.
Yes, keeping your phone in excellent condition goes a long way towards maintaining high resale and trade-in value. You should keep your phone in a case at all times - and always add a real glass (not plastic screen protector). As iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones get more expensive, the resale and trade-in value has been going up as well. For $25 now, you could add several hundred dollars to the value of your phone when it's time to upgrade. Read: 6 Ways to Boost the Resale Value of Your Phone
No, the WUDN slim cases come with a properly sized cutout for the headphone port (on iPhone 6 models) and lightning port. You will NOT need a dongle for your headphones. Having said that, how about a matching set of Walnut Bluetooth Earbuds.
WUDN cases do not come with a steel plate built in. We are looking to add that feature in the future. In the meantime, we know of many customers that have added a steel plate inside their WUDN case with great results. Here is a 4-pack of metal plates designed exactly for this purpose.
We did a long form blog post about that complete with pictures and videos. Take a look: We Built a Laser Engraved Phone Case from Scratch
Of course. We have a number of designs from cool artistic skulls to the "Sawtooth Mountains Traveler", and most of our cases are available in different wood types and species. You should have a couple of cases, at least, to change your style to match the moment. Monday through Friday in the office call for a simple, conservative case, and Fridays in the club call for something with a bit more style.
It could, but unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, our wood cases actually get better looking over time. We ship our cases with only one light layer of polyurethane. This means the case will age and the more you use it, the more the wood will look authentic and vintage. Some artisans actually use coffee to stain wood in beautiful mocha hues. (make sure your phone is out of the case when you decide to drop it in your coffee).
Of course, we offer a full custom shop here. The process is simple: find your image or logo (in black and white - jpg format) and send it to us. Pretty straightforward. We will get to work on design and production right away. You can also customize or personalize a matching journal/planner, mousepad or flask. How cool to have a personalized wooden phone case and a set of matching wood accessories.
Thermoplastic Urethane - A hybrid material, TPU is a mixture between hard plastic and soft silicone. A very dense and smooth rubber, TPU cases are made to slide in and out of the pocket easily, without attracting lint. TPU cases are more durable, slightly elastic and much stronger than silicone. WUDN uses TPU case templates which are then covered by real wood.
Duh. How cool are you on Saturday afternoon with a Bamboo world-map phone case and matching Bamboo Frame Sunglasses. Seriously.
“I couldn't pass up the opportunity to work with a company like WUDN, making cool real wood products. I am excited to see my art transformed into a product more people will get to see and WUDN customers will love." Said Jake Lindberg.
"WUDN is very eager to show off the product of our first artist collaboration. It's a fantastic piece of urban art we're calling the "Graffiti Octopus". Stunning and subtle, the Graffiti Octopus is sure to catch your attention." Said Cameron Christian, Owner of WUDN.
We’re so excited, we’re giving away Jake’s newest creation, the badass “Graffiti Octopus” in mahogany and aromatic cedar.
With Jake's help, we transformed the original octopus art into a vector file. The resulting image was cut into two parts so we could inlay two different wood species.
"Graffiti Octopus" by Jake Lindberg - Rendered in Black Walnut & Aromatic Cedar on iPhone 78 Slim Case by WUDN
