Custom Smart Covers
Probably. Certain colors of covers require specific types of artwork.
iPad Smart Covers are only customized using laser engraving. The process melts, burns, or removes the outer layer of material of the cover. The appearance depends on the color and material of the cover itself. The process is not printing and no color is added.
Artwork for polyurethane Smart Covers must be only pure black and white (1-bit) and should be in a vector format or at least 300 dpi (6oo dpi is preferable).
Artwork for leather Smart Covers is more flexible and can contain shading or photos. Any part of the artwork that is not black is dithered to a half-tone pattern. Clear, high contrast photos produce the best results. All artwork must be at least 300 dpi for the size engraved or a vector format.
We purchase iPad Smart Covers directly from Apple and cannot offer any discounts on the cost of the covers themselves. On large orders we do offer a discount off the engraving service. Please send us your artwork to request a quote.
Yes. The microfiber material used on the inside of the smart cover laser engraves very nicely. The appearance of the engraving is a darker hue than the original color.
We are putting together pages to show real examples of each color iPad Smart Cover. If you have any questions please contact us before ordering.
Due to the nature of the material of the Smart Covers and other factors beyond our control it is very difficult to accurately portray the final appearance of the engraving.
We provide electronic proofs to allow you to check the size and positioning of your artwork on the cover. It is not intended to be an accurate reflection of color, texture or detail level of the engraving.
Yes, this is not a problem unless you are attempting to do a very deep engraving. Deep engravings (popular on blue, green, and pink poly covers) cannot go over the seam or holes will develop in the cover material.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept returns or offer refunds on custom products. If you have any questions about the product please ask before ordering. If you are ordering a large number of covers we very strongly recommend ordering a single cover as a sample to examine in person.
