I think what it means is that there is no integrated screen protector. I don't use one on any of my devices. There is one integrated in my iPod case, and I don't care for it.

    We recently got iPhones and I am definitely going to get a matching set. I love all the options out there but I keep going back to the Leopard that I had for my other phone  :P

    One note Leslie...I did email them to find out if the front piece needed a separate screen protector...it does. The screen protector goes down first and the skin on top :-)


    Front piece for the iPhone? I'm not sure what you mean.

    L
    If you already have a screen protector on iPhone, leave it on and just apply the skin right on top of it. The skin only goes around the edges as shown in the picture...the center is cut out so it wouldn't offer any screen protection in terms of scratches. Pretty much what pidgeon said ;-pp

    Ah, okay. Thanks!

    Still no word back from them about the musical design.

    So I just called Keith at decalgirl (boy, he was nice!). I was planning on ordering the skin but HE was the person who read my e-mail so we got chatting about the sepia color. He is supposed to be sending me an email within the next 30 minutes with a web image. If I like it, I can go with that or just go with the original white & black.

    I'll report back!

    Awesome!!! The sepia color would be beautiful. Speaking of "holy cow"...I'd love a cow option. As much as I'm still leaning toward the leopard skin, I'm rather fond of cows  :P

    Ann, did you see this?


    Yeah I did. . . I like the sepia, but what I was envisioning was sepia paper, not sepia print.  (Looks like he just did a color conversion to give an idea:  the battery cover looks tan, not the gray it really is.) 
     Does that make sense?  Since you're talking to someone, could you ask about the possibility of a light burlwood?

    I'm definitely going to have to get a couple of these.

    Like Ann...I thought the "paper" would be sepia. Is there a possibility of him changing it around?

    I was sort of envisioning sepia paper, too, but Keith did say in the email that all that changed was the print. I'll call him tomorrow. They've all gone home for the day (9-5 EST).

    Even if it is only the print, I still like it, because it seems like it blends a bit more with the saddle cover.

    I'll report back, again!

    Even if it can't be done, it has a classy look to it that will go with your cover beautifully.

    I can't believe all the new skins- I had just looked at their site Saturday!
    They have added a dalmation skin-not quite a cow but close-http://www.decalgirl.com/browse.cfm/4,17174.htm

    Lynn--thanks for letting us know about the new skins!

    By the way, here's a tip I learned recently; if you want to add a clickable link, first click on the "Insert Hyperlink" button above your post reply text box, it's the one that looks like this: .

    It will put a [ url ]  [ /url] (without the spaces) in your message.  Click between them and paste your hyperlink there.  So your link will be clickable like this:
    http://www.decalgirl.com/browse.cfm/4,17174.htm

    So, are you getting the Dalmatian skins?

    Awesome!!! The sepia color would be beautiful. Speaking of "holy cow"...I'd love a cow option. As much as I'm still leaning toward the leopard skin, I'm rather fond of cows  :P

    They have a cow print for other devices, so I think it is just a simple matter of asking for it for your Kindle. It seems that if the design has already been created, all they need to do is print it on the Kindle pattern. The hard work is creating the design. Here's an example of what they have:

    Besides gaining a lot of attention for having a new gadget in my hand...let's add the funky cow print to it :-) I have so many skins on my wish list for both my still nameless Kindle and iPhone. I'm still leaning toward the leopard...it would be easy to find on my desk at DD's school  :P

    Betsy-

    Thanks for the info on adding a hyperlink-was wondering how to do that last night. I am undecided about the dalmations skin, waiting to see what oberon comes out with in their covers. Would like to co-ordinate the two if possible. Though I could get a couple of skins to change as my mood changes!

    I got mine through istyles, they carry all the decalgirl skins but they give you a discount when you go back and buy new stuff by using the  code "IAMBACK" and I do think it is nice to be able to change them..

    Here are mine and a couple of my own homemade screensavers......

    Well, being a music director and singer, I just had to have the Symphonic skin, so I ordered it.  I can't wait to get it applied and download the screen saver.

    Symphonic skins update:

    I talked to Keith at DecalGirl (such a nice guy!). As we suspected, the "sepia" is really just printing the black notes in a sort of brown color. They can't do a sepia background to look like an aged manuscript, but he understood the concept I was describing perfectly. He said he will add it to the wish list of designs for the designers so if enough people call or email asking for "sepia symphonic" it may happen.

    In the meantime, I just went with the traditional black notes which I still think will look good. I got a cover for my iPhone and Kindle so they'll be a matched set.

    Keith gave me a 10% discount for being a nice person...or something! My skin should arrive in a week or two.

    If you are interested in asking about the sepia symphonic skin, send a message to [email protected] and mention that you heard about it from me.

    I ordered the blue flower burst with my own money. Then today my mom ordered to the Black Zen skin for me, which is the one I really wanted. I get one of them tomorrow, but I will be waiting for the second skin to wait and see which one i am going to use. Either way, I am going to keep both skins just in case I want to change my skin in a couple of months. (I also would like my kindle to match the rest of my accessories for school, which is all red, but that may change with the new semester.)
