Hi,

I‘m really happy with the Smart Keyboard Folio for the new iPad Pro. Typing is great and it’s also a good, mobile cover. Only issue for me is the look and the material. First: It doesn’t look like a 200 Euro cover. Second: You can see every fingerprint and grease stain. I’d like to pimp my keyboard with skins or stickers. Do you have any ideas? How do you pimp yours?

Thx

I’m looking for the same for the non-keyboard Folio. I see that iCarbons has skins for previous versions of the Apple covers so I’m hoping that they will eventually add skins for the current covers to their catalog.

ANybody come up with any findings? Been looking around with no luck. I ended up making my own from a carbon fiber vinyl, but of course mine isn't going to be laser cut perfect.

Can you provide the link?
My thought was just the logo itself, as in the following link, although I do like the full skins posted above!

Also been on the hunt - these are the only ones I've found to date

Those look great- I emailed the company to see if they have plans to produce versions for the non-keyboard folio. Thanks for posting!

I got a stained glass tree design for my 11 inch keyboard folio. I wish they had them for the older ASKs, because I still have a 12.9, and the only decals I’ve found for that are from DBrands, and I don’t love the available colors/designs. I did order some fun skins from Slickwraps for the iPads themselves and my gen 2 Pencil. No wrap for my older pencil, because it’s in a little magnet sleeve.

No problem - hope they're ok!

Still haven't ordered one yet as really wanted a Baby Groot one.... (but I guess it's the wrong year for that) So have to choose a colour (reviews for their stuff before seemed ok)

My apologies for the delay - I received my skin for my 11 iPad Pro Smart Keyboard case in a week. It looks great, was easy to stick to the case (and line up). I'm impressed and already have a shopping cart filled with new skins (but holding off until after the holidays....I've already gone over budget with Christmas presents lol). Thanks for the link and Merry Christmas!

Cheers,
B

I got mine too! Same deal— very easy to put onto the folio and looks great.

I also got one for my 2017 12.9 iPad (not the ASK), and it looks great, but I’m not as enthusiastic. I had to trim a lot off to get the smart connector to work (even though it was always exposed, it just apparently doesn’t take much thickness to interfere), and there’s no hole in it for one of the microphones, which interfered with my work this morning. I need to figure out exactly where it is supposed to be and poke a hole.

My wife bought me a vinyl cutting machine for Christmas. I'll be making some stickers for my business to put on my Pro when it gets here this weekend.

I see that slickwraps has options now as well. In addition to vinyl wraps they also have alcantera (synthetic suede), leather, and wood veneer products as well.

I was torn between an alcantera cover, or the bamboo and ultimately decided on the alcantera. I'll post here once it's arrived.
Thanks for the link. I'm about to place an order. Do you know for sure if these cover the front and the back of the Keyboard Folio? It doesn't show both sides. Thanks

Have you received yours yet? I was looking for confirmation that it covered both side of the folio? Thanks
