1.0 out of 5 stars Remember contact paper? June 11, 2009
This is one single sheet of contact paper that only goes on the back of the kindle. If this is what you were looking for you have found the right product.

5.0 out of 5 stars great product June 3, 2010
By Jessss

I took a long while to decide on which design I would ultimately want for my kindle dx. I loved this design but was concerned when some of the reviews stated that it only covered the back. The product description said otherwise, so I was nervous. However, I gave in and decided to go ahead and get it.

I love it! I came on a flat board that kept it protected. The colors are vibrant and beautiful. The directions were sooo simple and easy. I very easily applied it and it easily came back off since I didn't get it centered the first time. Getting all the bubbles out was awesome too. I don't really have a complaint as it covers the front and the back perfectly. The only thing I would say is that although it covers the kindle great I do wish it extended a little further for the back. Where it curves to meet the front doesn't get fully covered, but it is still covered enough. This product is durable and great.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is excellent at what it intends to accomplish June 15, 2009
I have used this company's products on many items - computers, iPods and Kindles - And have to give them high marks for quality and ease of use. Their products do EXACTLY what they say they will do. They adhere to your Kindle very easily and come off just as simply, without messy residue. The graphics are exceptional and very eye-catching (I've gotten quite a lot of comments on my Kindle2 with the bookshelf painting). Most importantly, they really do protect your Kindle from scratches.

If you plan on keeping your Kindle2 or KindleDX constantly in a form-fitting cover, then you may not need these, although they are still pretty cool. But if you ever expect to remove the Kindle from its protective cover, then these GeleSkins are the way to go with the style & protection you want for the back of your Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Covers both back and front of Kindle DX! July 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
I just received this GelaSkin for my new Kindle DX and it came with BOTH a full piece for the back and a cut out for the front.

It was very easy to put on. The releaseable 3M material that it's made with makes it easy to reposition and will not leave a film.

The graphics are lush and gorgeous!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice compliment to the Kindle April 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
Contrary to what some have posted, it covers both the front and back.

The back went on without a hitch but the front was a different story. The front has a large cutout for the screen and another for the keyboard. When you peel it off the backing there's nothing to hold the shape. It was like nailing Jello to a tree. The best I could do was a BIG wrinkle at the upper left corner. I tried again the next day and managed to get it to fit better but it still has a small wrinkle on the top right side.

Gelaskins needs to come up with a way to put a non-adhesive "plug" into the holes for the screen and keyboard to give it more body. After you get it positioned the way you like you can remove the plugs.

I like the way it decorates my Kindle; it's a kind of a bookshelf, n'est-ce pas?

4.0 out of 5 stars Pricey, but cute February 12, 2011
By deanna

I bought this before I realized there were cheaper skins I could get for my kindle. I also didn't realize it was a skin until I opened the package, I thought it was a case. I like the pattern a lot though, so it's worth it. It's a bookshelf with classic novel titles but changed slightly to sound silly. I don't like that the stickers for the buttons don't have the button words on them either too. Sometimes I forget whether I'm about to hit back or home.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - But not what I thought it would be November 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
The skin covers the surface of the Kindle, except for the buttons and the screen. I thought there was a clear cover for the screen, for protection, but not. It adds a nice decorative look, although I like the Kindle look as is. I'll keep it on for a while, because it is fun, but not forever. If you want a different look to your Kindle, this product is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your ordinary vinyl November 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Some reviewers have said that this is glorified shelf paper, ah, no. I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to buy because of the price, and the fact that I only wanted the skin for the back of the device (do not want distracting print around the frame while I am reading) but I am glad I did buy.
First, this is a high grade skin made out of quality vinyl (probably more to it than that), it is just the right thickness to make it easy to apply without bubbles, and the 3M adhesive is amazing, remove and re-apply and it sticks great with no residue.
The greatest thing about this Gelaskin is that it gives the Kindle DX a slightly tacky feel when holding the device, which in its bare state is very slippery because of the metal back. Its not as good as the six inch Kindle with its rubberized back, but if you have clean hands, the skin gives you just enough resistance when holding the DX to make you feel like you have a more secure hold on your expensive e-reader.
If you do not like this design, check out the Gelaskins web site, they sell several others there.
