It offers the ultimate protection for your iPad, protecting it against scratching, especially in your bag or briefcase, as well as offering protection against minor drops. The soft interior is unlined, which protects your screen and the leather develops a natural patina over time. The custom leather iPad case is design to fit all versions of the iPad, excluding Minis, even with an Apple cover on.

How your leather iPad case is made
We use the most up to date printing technology to print onto our leather materials. Expert printing technicians are fully trained in these modern techniques, which bond the rub-proof inks with the fibres of the leather itself. This makes your design as strong as the leather for a long lasting, high-definition print.
Craftsmen then cut your leather iPad cover to size and shape, this is done after the printing process to ensure that your design runs from one edge to the other, without any white edges at the seams. This is then passed on to our artisan seamstresses who lovingly hand stitch your custom leather iPad case, ensuring that it is finished to the highest quality.
Simply wipe down your custom leather iPad case if it gets dirty. Please ensure not to soak your case.
There is a small semicircle cut-out at the top of the case, this appears on both sides. Its purpose is to let you slide your device in and out of the leather iPad cover easily, without any struggle. Bear this in mind when you are planning your design as any part which covers that area you will not see in your final product, avoid putting any major design features in this area.
As the high-quality nappa leather is a natural material, there will be a visible grain, pock marks and a patina which develops over time, this is to be expected and add a charming authenticity to your leather iPad case, as well as making sure that even with the exact same design, no two are ever the same.
We advise to use more detailed patterns than solid blocks of colour as on the leather as the large amount of a single colour may appear to be patchy due to the variations in texture of the material. Our state-of-the-art printing methods mean that we can print fine details up to 2 pts, so intricate detailing is not an issue at all.
Reviews for Leather iPad Cover
based on 1 customer reviews
I was happy with the products and fast shipping. I feel the bag could use a wider and longer handle. My wrap dress needs to be redone regarding the back and opens in the front too easily but otherwise everything else is fine.

Frequently asked questions:
Do both sides have to have the same print?
They do not, you design both sides of your custom leather iPad case separately, so you can choose whether to feature the same design on both sides, or a a different one. You can also add text to your design, again either on one side or on both.
Can I use this for any iPad?
The only exception to this is the iPad Mini. Technically it would fit inside the leather iPad case, however this product has been designed to fit standard iPad models, and as a result would be too big for the Mini models.
I already have an Apple cover on my iPad, can I still use this?
You can indeed, our custom leather iPad cases have been specifically designed to fit all standard iPad models, even if you already have an Apple cover on. If you have a third party cover we cannot guarantee compatibility.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
