I chose this Kindle skin, because I'm obsessed with owls; and this little guy is just so adorable!
When I received the skin in the mail, I was surprised that it arrived on a couple of pieces of what looked like shiny "paper". At first, I was a little disappointed; but when I looked more closely, I saw that it was a special, durable product created by 3M.
It looked as if it was going to take forever to align it properly on the Kindle (I'm a perfectionist), but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy the application process really was. I accidentally got it a little crooked on the back and was dreading taking it off to start over; but I did it anyway, and was even more shocked when the "stickiness" didn't seem to diminish at all!
I have used my Kindle TONS and TONS, and I haven't noticed any peeling, curling, fading, wearing out, etc. of this product! I highly recommend using it! (*It should be noted that this product does not provide any real "protection" as in "padding" to the Kindle, merely a covering to prevent scratches on the Kindle body itself.*)
