FineGrain is on the path to go from small time Provo Utah start-up, to big time world success. Founders Levi Price and Eric Rea developed a new case concept for the iPad, one that is strong enough to take a beating and sleek enough to adapt in any situation. In April 2012, the young duo launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the first production run of FineGrain cases, which only took one month to achieve the full backing and support of many in the iPad user-community.
The new FineGrain iPad cases are the “Bowden” ($210) and “Sheffield” ($190) for iPad2/iPad3. Both hard cases are available in choice of walnut or cherry wood edges, but differ in all other choice materials. The Bowden incorporates an aluminum back plate with choice of black or brown full-grain leather cover. The Sheffield incorporates a polycarbonate plate with grey wool felt cover. The cool part about this design is that the back doubles as a dry-erase board. Also, the covers on each design roll-up to form a tablet stand for typing modes.
The quick financial backing clearly suggests that many people wish to buy FineGrain tablet cases. And their desire is completely understandable, because the case designs are a work of art. Even the included micro fiber cleaning cloth has a fine art design print. The future is definitely looking bright for FineGrain.
