Aura H2O skins

Does anyone know of a company that is producing skins for the Aura H2O? I am not normally someone that puts skins on my devices, but I have seen the bezel of my Aura H2O get scuffed up easily and would like to put a skin on it to help protect the bezel.

I emailed Decalgirl but they didn't seem likely to produce one and told me that they need to get a much larger demand before they would even consider adding the Aura H2O to their product line. While I was on their site, I noticed how many devices listed aren't even being made any more. I got the impression that they aren't the quickest to update their product lines.

You might ask at Nuvango.com (formerly Gelaskins). They don't have them yet but hey're in Canada and they have skins for previous Kobo ereaders.

I have emailed Nuvango and they kindly replied back that they will not be producing a skin for the H2O. Looks like I'm out of luck.

DecalGirl.com is another one that has skins for all other Kobo readers, you might try asking there if they intend on producing a skin for the H2O.

Just checked DecalGirl - they support the HD but not the H20.

I called DecalGirl last month and strongly encouraged them to offer skins for the H20 (I did this when the HD came out as well). Their decision to produce skins for Kobo devices, according to the lady I spoke with, is based on the number of requests they receive.

My advice.... please CALL or EMAIL them! Even if you are not purchasing skins it will help those of us who are! :-) I've got matte skins on my HD, front and back, and they are outstanding!

I'll email them and help with the cause! It's too bad these devices are such fingerprint magnets. I was wondering if it might get better with time, I had a device in the past that happened with. There might be a coating that wears off, I'm not sure? I guess it's still too early to know.

Emailed DecalGirl (LOVE those skins!) and got the response below -

Quote:
I am so sorry we do not support that device as yet. What I can do is have the Kobo AuraH20 added to our list of devices to discuss with our development team. If we get a great response from consumers there may be a great chance we will do it. We release about 4-5 or more devices per month so we are always looking for new devices to bring in.
So... Maybe? They previously made me a custom (Hokusai's Great Wave Off Kanagawa) that would be killer on my H20.
