Tired of scratching up your Apple iPad? GelaSkins has fun, stylish and customizable options for protecting the tablet while making it stand out in the crowd. You can choose from 1000s of self-adhesive tablet skins designed by well known artists or just upload your own photo for a personalized skin. The two-part sticker skin covers the back and front edges of your tablet (they are easy to remove too, with no sticky residue). Plus, GelaSkins throws in design-matching wallpaper for seamless artwork over the entire device.

Beauty is only skin deep, as the saying goes. With GelaSkins for your iPad, looks and style is what this is all about. GelaSkins offers hundreds of self-adhesive skin designs created by over 150 artists that completely decorate your Apple iPad. Themes range from art pop to impressionism, from urban to nature – my favorites are van Gogh classics. If you’re unsure about which design to choose, you can always download a wallpaper JPEG for free and give the design a test drive. If there isn’t anything that looks appealing, upload a photo and GelaSkins will create a personalized skin. The skin itself comes in two parts on a piece of paper like a peel-off sticker: a bezel cover and a back cover. Some people may shudder at the thought of applying something sticky to their iPad, but GelaSkins uses a special adhesive backing (called Controltac by 3M) making the stickers easy to install and remove, leaving no residue behind. Applying the iPad skin is a relatively easy task and there was no “bubbling” when I put it on the rear cover. The front part of the skin, that covers the area around the screen, is more difficult to install—an extra set of hands around solves the problem. When the skin is on, match it with the downloaded wallpaper to make a cool, seamless design across the entire Apple iPad.
