Odenton, Md. - M-Edge Accessories launched a website that lets consumers design and personalize protective jackets for the Nook, Kindle and iPad.
The site, known as MyEdge, has a Style Library that features artwork exclusively commissioned from such artists as Amy Ruppel and Christopher Bettig. It also contains cover artwork from past issues of The New Yorker; NCAA-licensed logos; and a variety of book cover artwork, including "Moby Dick," "Catch 22," "Slaughterhouse 5" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
Consumers can choose from a black or mocha microfiber leather spine and stitching accents for the jacket. Once the jacket is approved and finalized, the design is printed on canvas using eco-friendly water-based inks, M-Edge said, and each jacket is coated with Scotchgard protection.
Covers for the Kindle and Nook will be $40, while iPad covers will be $50. It takes approximately two weeks for consumers to receive their jackets.
