Just in time for the new fraternity and sorority classes of 2010, Coveroo has launched more than 125 Greek-themed designs, including house letters, school mascots, symbols, and university affiliation for mobile phones, iPad and iPods.

Sororities include Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Phi, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Delta Zeta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, and Zeta Tau Alpha.

Fraternities include Alpha Tau Omega, Beta Theta Pi, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Psi, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and Tau Kappa Epsilon.

Universities with Greek integrated designs include UCLA and USC. Coveroo is continually adding schools, and plans to have Greek integrated designs for all universities where there are licenses by the end of this year.

“Greeks, both active and alumni, are incredibly passionate about their chapters. Support for these organizations was once conveyed only through sweatshirts, but now can be shown on the devices they carry with them every day,” said Coveroo's CEO and Co-Founder Karl Jacob. “Coveroo provides Greeks a unique and modern way to show pride for their chapter and university.”


To get a Coveroo case, customers select their phone type at, then choose from more than 4,000 designs or send in their own design. Coveroo will customize the cover or case and ship it within 48 hours. Customers do not have to send their phone to Coveroo.

For iPhones and other devices that don’t have removable covers, Coveroo customizes high- quality cases manufactured by reputable brands. For devices with removable covers like Blackberry, Coveroo customizes and replaces the original backs or battery covers so the design becomes an interchangeable accessory and doesn’t add any bulk. The line will be available for purchase at, Amazon and other select retailers starting today.
