Hello to all and boyhowdy it's good to be over here! This question is for the folks who bought the kindle skins- how do you like them? I have read where some of you took the skins right back off immediately and others were very pleased with them. Now that the newness has worn off, do you still like them?
Thanks,
Sheryl

Yes, I still like my red Kindle skin. It was a little annoying to get on, but I like the color and I only ever really see the color when I first pick it up. My awareness of it goes away once I have started reading.

One thing to remember about the skins if you are repositioning a piece that has stretched out of shape due to moving it is set that piece aside for an hour or so and it will go back to it's original size.

I just put my skins on, and I wasn't sure I liked them at first; I had gotten used to Eleanor the Kindle the way she looked.  Now I think it's like when your spouse gets a haircut, it takes some getting used to.  Now I'm enjoying them.  Will check back at some point!

Are you getting your skins from this site:

http://www.decalgirl.com/browse.cfm/2,289.htm

I am trying to figure out which one would look good with my saddle M-edge cover. Somehow, Aloha-blue just doesn't seem to fit!

Thoughts?

Hi Leslie!

Yes that is the company I used ...LOVE THEM! Great service!

Before they so graciously added the Leopard I was considering one of the Zen skins...

There are some really nice ones on the site...

Happy Choosing!

I agree...fabulous skins and great quality. I had one on my phone that I constantly stuck into my front pocket while working at DD's school...the edges look just as sharp as when I first put them on. I didn't realize they now have Kindle skins...I'm excited by that but also...which one do I choose??? So many choices!

Thanks for the replies!

Since I prefer to use Joy (my Kindle of course) naked, I was wondering if the skins being glossy would have any affect on being able to hold her comfortably. Her casing has a matte texture that I find doesn't become slippery and with the back being mostly rubber, it makes for a nice grip. I have small hands and some arthritis and I find that reading with a cover really makes my hands uncomfortable where with Joy naked she's lighter, slimmer, very comfortable, and fits my hands better.

I guess I'll take the plunge and get some clothes for Joy. I really like the Blues Club- interruption- OMG I just looked at the Decalgirl website and she's added alot of new skins for the Kindle! Now I can't decide which one I like best!

Yes, that is where I got mine. The official name of mine is Humidor. Maybe burlwood would look good with the saddle?
I looked at both Humidor and Burlwood. I was thinking of something with a slight bit more flair. Even though my Kindle has decided he's an English gentleman, I still like a bit of pizazz. What about this one? Opinions?

Oh gosh, now I am looking at skins for Ruby. I have the red M-Edge cover. I like Poolside & Leopard Spots, kinda like Zebra also. I'll have to think on this one.  ??? I like your choice Leslie.

I was going to go order and then....

William Sterndale Bennett was a British composer, so I was thinking I'd like something with a musical theme. I also have an iPhone and was planning on buying a set. So, I started looking at the iPhone skins and look what I found!



I just emailed them and asked if they could make a Kindle cover in this pattern. I also asked if they could do it in a sepia tone, to make it look more old-fashioned and to match my saddle cover. We'll see what they say. I'll report back.

Thanks, bb. I did get your message!

It seems to me that if they already have the design on vinyl, running it through their Kindle pattern should be simple issue. They say every cover is custom made.

I'm curious if changing the color will be more of an issue. We'll see what they say.
