I have the sgp white leather back

It's great, I'll take some pics later, but the fit is great , mine is not 100 % aligned, more like 95%, but it fit great, I love the texture, gives the iPad a much more expensive look and feel

Bad news guys,

Took it out of my apple case this morning to take some pics for you all and the beautiful white leather back is covered in blue lines, seems like there is an issue with the material and the apple case

I contacted sgp to see what they say, for now I would say don't buy the white one if you have an apple case

Here is a link to my album

looks like the apple case bled on the skin, where the wrap around attachment fits in.

I am tempted to buy the black leather skin, but never have used SGP's products.
They also have pre-orders for a vintage leather case that looks great.

Other than the issues with the white skin, can you comment on the difficulty to apply and also as another asked if it leaves residue when removing?

update


heard from SGP,, very stand up people

they admitted that the white is very sensitive, and offered to replace it with either a new one or anything else

i decided to get the black carbon one instead as the carbon looks great and the black will not show off the bleeding like the white one does

I think the big question everyone has is how does your iPad look when you remove the white leather? Is there residue? Any damage? Difficulty when removing?

just removed it

removal is a piece of cake, and if you have the orignal backing that it came with you could reuse it if you wanted to

0% residue didnt even need to wipe it down after i removed it


to answer the other question, it fit fine with the backing on and the apple case, no issue at all, other then the blue stains

forgot to answer this as well

yes there is a clear sticker that goes over the apple logo, so its protected as well

I have the White SGP and it looks beautiful. I was worried about it getting 'dirty' from hands and what have you but it doesn't pick up any of that.

i posted 2 pictures of carbon skin right here in this thread
https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/897109/

i now changed to the O shaped anti and white skin and so far i like it. i hope it doesn't get dirty too quick... or i might have to change back to my carbon that i stored away for now.
wow that looks great, if you could post some picture of the screen as well so i can get an idea of what it looks like on there. I currently have the SGP Stienheil AF on my iphone 3GS and i really love it. The fact that i dont have to wipe it down every 5 second is a good thing.



I think people should post up more pics of the installed products.

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. I will pick one up soon. Does it cover the logo with a clear coat or anything? I'd hate to have the logo exposed.

Those are some great looking back covers. They show a new iPad case at the bottom of each page but I couldn't find the link for that case. Anyone seen that case yet? Looks very interesting . . .

I ordered the carbon skin as well. I had planned to put this on the 3G when it arrives. It would have been nice if they would include a cut-out template for the black antenna area at the top. This is a personal preference of course. Since it is a raised area I only wonder if the skin would fit properly if one did decide to cover that part.
