Griffin releases iPhone 4S Case made from 7” Vinyl Record

Accessories maker Griffin Technology has teamed up with Nashville based Third Man Records to create one of the more unique iPhone cases around. Dubbed the The Third Man 45, the iPhone 4S accessory is made from a genuine 7” vinyl record, which has been custom-cut into a protective case.

To create the Griffin and Third Man Records Case for iPhone 4S, the team incorporated a genuine 7″ vinyl record, pressed by United Record Pressing in Nashville, Tennessee, then die-cut to form the protective back of the case. A molded frame snaps around the iPhone, holding the record insert in place and protecting the controls, edges, and screen, with cutouts for volume, headphone, hold switch and dock connector.

The Third Man 45 Case sells for $29.99 and comes in three available colors: White, Yellow and Black. Additionally, a separate interchangeable Vinyl Insert 3 pack  – inspired by the bands The White Stripes (white), The Raconteurs (black) and The Dead Weather (yellow) — can be purchased for $19.99. If you’re tired of the same old cases for your iPhone 4S, this vinyl case from Griffin is well worth a look. Check out the video on how the case is made and full press release after the break.
