add some flare to your fire
on November 29, 2011
I've gotten skins from Decalgirl before and I've never been disappointed. I was a bit worried that putting a skin on my Kindle Fire would defeat the purpose of the back which is supposed to keep it from slipping during use as the skins I've gotten have all been glossy. This one, however, is mat and feels almost vinyl so there's no risk of slipping even with the skin applied. The picture is just what it's supposed to be, with bright colors and formatted properly for the Fire. It's easy to apply and comes up easily as you're applying so if you don't position it right the first time you have nothing to worry about (although the longer it stays stuck the harder it is to peel off, although that's also a good thing).
The product was delivered in perfect condition, much quicker than estimated. My estimated ship date was within 2-3 weeks of ordering, and I had my skin withing 4 days.
My only issue with this skin is that, for whatever reason, the front piece doesn't quite cover all the non-screen space at the top and bottom. I tried re-positioning it multiple times, but I always had the same problem. It's not a really noticeable discrepancy, but I was just slightly disappointed because the other skins I've gotten have fit the device perfectly (my ipod and kindle keyboard). Although I'd much rather have it not cover enough of the front than cover the screen.
Overall I'm very satisfied with the product and will continue to purchase skins from Decalgirl in the future.
