Just received my new K3 skin...

... but I just can't seem to put it on. Not because I don't have the ability but because I love the graphite color!

I have the same custom skin on several electronic items (K1, K2, Palm Pre and my HP laptop). It makes it easy to identify my stuff quickly and the artwork is unique to me.

I might put the skin on the back and leave the front alone.

Has anyone skinned their graphite K3 or DX?

daffy4u,

I find myself is the same position. I skinned both my K2 and original DX to tone down the stark white. But I knew when I ordered the DX Graphite (and subsequently the K3) that I had no desire to cover the newer Kindles. For me, I find the graphite to be the perfect color to compliment the Pearl display - very classy as it is (and easier on the eyes).

And I would never consider covering the back of the K3 as I really like the feel when holding it "naked."

I have no desire to skin my graphite Kindles, but I skinned my white Kindles ASAP. Just a personal preference.

I skinned mine.

I wanted some protection from scratches, and I like the colour blue better than graphite gray.

I skinned all my white Kindles with matte black, but NOT the graphite Kindles - I really like their appearance, and the contrast on the Pearl screen is great - doesn't need a dark black border.

Very good-looking that Kindle!
I never had a skin on something digital; is it possible to change skins or use an one's own design, like a photo ?

I find the skins visually distracting while reading, even though I appreciate how good looking some of them are.

Yes, at least I know that you can remove the decalgirl skins without any residue, and reuse them if you are very careful. I think, also, that the decalgirl folks can do a custom skin for you. I've seen a couple, although mine is just one of the stock ones.

Thanks,I'll look around for a black skin with black roses to match my red wild roses cover. If it leaves no residu it'll be allright.

The DecalGirl skins are very easy to install and look very nice, IMHO. I haven't seen any skins with a black rose on them so you may need to ask for a custom skin. Here is a nice red rose skin, should you change your mind:

It would look very nice with the Oberon black rose cover, but I don't know if it would go well with the red cover:

Thank you; that rose is beautiful; I'll mail them wether they can make the skin in black for me.

And anew have doubts wether I should have bought the black cover ; to go with the red rose skin.

Excuse me: I didn't mean to kidnap your thread with my cover/skin. Just curious: did you skin your Kindle?
