Kindle Skins

Kindle SkinCuteness overload!

I have been using this adorable giraffe (originally created by Vlad Gerasimov) as my desktop wallpaper for a couple years now. Each time I need to make a presentation, thus exposing my desktop to the strangers’ eyes – I always get a few giggles and compliments towards my choice of desktop image. I was stoked to see this artwork reprinted as as Kindle Skin by DecalGirl.

I can only imagine the amount of compliments one would get for a similar Kindle Skin! Winter time is time to dress up your Kindle. Many more DecalGirl Kindle Skins available for $19.99 – all created by very talented artists.

Kindle SkinIf you do not find anything by DecalGirl that is up to your liking, there are also Kindle Skins available by GelaSkins. GelaSkins’ selection of designs is quite nifty too – the owl charmed my heart away.

I did not notice any major differences in the quality and customers’ reviews between these brands. Except that DecalGirl states on their website that if a customer damages the Kindle Skin, while installing it on their Kindle, then they promise to replace it for free. The customer would only cover the shipping costs. I’m not sure how topical is the issue of damaging Kindle Skins during the installation process, but I have to agree, this is pretty nice of DecalGirl to offer. As for the price, it is only five cents difference – GelaSkins are $19.95.

And in case if you are stern like a samurai – you like the idea of dressing up your Kindle, but cute giraffes and owls with eyes full of tenderness and love-stricken insomnia seem a bit overwhelming, here is a Kindle Skin just for you – plain and black. It is $14.99, by Solid State.

    is it possible to use multiple skins in one kindle? I mean can we peel off the skin easily when we are bored or ist it a permanent thing once sticked?

    Zub, Kindle Skins are not permanent – you can peel them off.

    Thanks for the very well-written article, Sofiya. I enjoyed it. I use an Amazon lighted cover currently but have considered a bit more personalization, so this was a very useful read.

    I appreciate this blog immensely and have enjoyed it extensively throughout the year. Have a great New Year (to you too, Andrei)!
