Custom iPad Skin

It came! After a bit of fussing to get all the bubbles out (the larger format is more difficult), I have the new skin affixed to my iPad. Now I can spot mine in a crowd!

Want your own custom skin? I used Photoshop Elements to design mine, adding a border from a separate bird journal page at the bottom, since the square format didn't fit my iPad. I uploaded the file to SkinIt, where it was printed and shipped within days. My only advice is to add a bit more of a border around the perimenter for misalignment. I have a tiny sliver of white at the bottom of the skin, because it printed shifted up slightly. Well, maybe check saturation better, as well, as the text is a bit hard to read on this print due to low contrast, but I think I like it anyway.
