Compared to $49.95, that's a bargain! Plus, I was able to get my own custom liner paper (there's unlimited options online), unlike the DODOcase, which at the moment only offers red. Hollander's moves fast and I received the shipment in about four days. If you are crafty, the process is pretty simple and can be completed in about two hours (drying time excluded). Please do not take this as anti-DODOcase. It is because I love them so much that I decided to make one myself. If you don't have the time to make one yourself, looking at the cost of the supplies and the fact that it comes with a nice foil stamping and beautiful bamboo seat for the iPad, $49.95 is a deal for something handcrafted like the DODOcase.
Putting a case around an Apple product gives me mixed emotions. Apple puts so much devotion into designing their products that every detail has been thought about. Holding a bare iPhone or iPad, it just feels right, the only thing they don't seem to take into consideration is: what if it is dropped, what if it is put in a bag, what if it rests on a rough surface, what if its in a pocket with keys? A case is needed. I always like to find a case that is as elegant as the Apple products themselves. For my iPod, I ended up loving the invisible shield, for my iPhone, I think there is no better case than the Incase slider, and now with my iPad I am back in this hunt. Having heard very mixed reviews about Apple's own iPad case, I searched the web and found the DODOcase. The DODOcase is everything I wanted out of iPad protection. It is light, let's the Apple product stand out, protects the screen, and feels like a book when held (gives the ereading experience a little old school flare). Best of all, they look just like my beloved Moleskine sketchbooks, which would not only look awesome sitting side by side, but offer some camouflage when carrying the iPad around the city. The problem? They are handmade, so have a 4-6 week wait (add another week for shipping) and they cost $49.95 with shipping. About to move on, I watched the video they have posted on their site about how they made the cases and had a little brainstorm. Having gone to school for graphic design, I had taken a class in traditional bookbinding and the process they use to make the cases is that same exact process. I went to my favorite book binding supply website, Hollander's and did a run down of cost.
