Sometimes, it's the little things that matter. A vase of flowers in your entryway, the desktop wallpaper that greets you every morning when you log onto your computer,...the personal image on your customized iPad or e-reader cover.
Yesterday, M-Edge--which already has an incredible assortment of covers, cases, jackets, totes, and other containers for your e-readers and tablets--launched MyEdge, a design-your-own cover website that lets users customize jackets for their iPad (1 or 2), Kindle (2 or 3), or Nook. The site wizard lets you upload photos or original artwork, add patterns or text, or select a design from a library of licensed artwork. MyEdge jackets feature a leather spine and 100% cotton canvas front and back cover--both panels are customizable, as is the trim color and optional text boxes and color blocks.
You'll get your customized cover in about two weeks after designing it. Prices for Kindle or Nook covers are $40, iPad is $50.
Customized cases--e.g., Design Your Own Laptop Bag--are a small thing that can lift your mood or set the tone of your day (and they can also help prevent theft and make it easier to spot your case among a sea of ordinary ones). As a fan of M-Edge e-reader cases, particularly the New Yorker Jacket, I think the MyEdge design-your-own-jacket site will be a great tool for creating personalized gifts for tablet and e-reader owners. Yes, especially when the gift recipient is yourself.
