    Hi forum members,

    If you can't wait for StyleSwap covers, you can make your own skins for the One! No ordering from DBrand!
    Here is a bamboo one I have made:

    And the best part is... You can customise them!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What you'll need:
    • Scissors
    • Sticker Paper (Pick some up from your nearest Staples centre or stationary shop)
    • Photoshop (Optional: For customising)
    • An Inkjet printer
    • Good sticker applying skills!
    ======================================================================
    Pros and Cons.
    Pros:
    Custom!
    Don't have to wait for StyleSwap!
    Protects against light scratches! (This paper is thicker than normal)
    Looks great!
    Sticks right on!
    Its easy!
    Cons:
    Have to have good sticker-applying skills.

    This will not work on the Sandstone Black because of the rough surface. You will have to use a clear case.

    I wonder how this would work on the black sandstone, which has a very rough surface. ;-) Probably not too well. ;-)

    You can get a clear case and do it on that.

    This may be a very noob question but how did you get to scale it 1:1? I was gonna to run it through directly to my cutter plotter via Make the Cut but the scaling is not right. Did you just print it out via Photoshop without adjusting the scaling?
