Cases are great, but if you really want to make a statement and completely personalize your iPad, then skins are the way to go. There are thousands of designs that exist on the internet today, and many companies have began offering “make your own” options, giving you full creative freedom over what goes on the back of your iPad. The following is a comparison between three top skins producers.
Although ZAGG’s skins are the most expensive on this list, they are also the highest quality products. Prices range from $19.99 for the most basic options to over $54.99 for the sports leather options. These skins come with ZAGG’s trademark invisibleSHIELD to protect the iPad’s screen and they even offer a 45 day money back guarantee if you’re not thrilled with your purchase (chances aren’t likely). You can either create your own designs or choose from their gallery of pleasing patterns or conceptual art pieces. They also offer what the other skins companies don’t offer: genuine leather skins. These are high quality skins and look very classy on any Apple tablet. If you’re looking for something more unique, however, then the next option on this list might be a better option for you.
Saving the best for last, GelaSkins offers one of the most extensive collection of iPad skin designs on the internet. There are hundreds of different designs available, from graffiti-type backgrounds to glossy animal photos or picturesque landscapes. Its site boasts over 100 artists, and if that’s not good enough, you even have the option of designing your own iPad skins using personal artwork or photography. Also, with high-tech, patented materials that guarantee easy cleaning and no scratches even after years of use, how can you go wrong? Prices range from $19.95 for back-only to $29.95 to front/back skins. GelaSkins is definitely a good option for anyone looking to go the customization route or get a few different skins without paying exorbitant prices for them. They also offer an extensive collection of skins for phones and laptops to match your iPad or iPad 2! Buy 3 skins, get one FREE!
“Community Designed Goodness” is their motto, and they certainly live up to it! Having been developing skins for other tech long before the iPad was released, Infectious offers some really cool designs for everything from phones to tablets to skateboards. Skins for iPads and iPad 2’s come in at $19.99 (back part only). Whether you want to buy one of their hundreds of unique designs or create one of your own from images uploaded right from your computer, Infectious is a great place to go for iPad skins. The only downside is that their skins only cover the silver-part of the iPad’s casing, whereas the next skins company on the list offers front and back options. Still, if you’re looking for something created by an artistic genius and offered at a great price, then Infectious is the place to shop.
For the basics, you won’t have to spend more than $20 or so on your iPad’s skins. There are so many designs available that it’s nearly impossible not to find one that you like, so whether you go with ZAGG, Infectious, or GelaSkins, you’re guaranteed to have a good product with a fantastic design (and at a fair price).
