The Origami Slate is a unique, sleek, and easy to fold case for the iPad. It is compatible with both the iPad 2 and the new iPad.

"The Origami Slate is like a Smart Cover, only smarter. It features front and back protection for your iPad, and has embedded magnets to preserve the sleep and wake features. Thanks to an innovative design, the cover folds into a number of configurations to offer more viewing angles than Apple's standard cover." - TabCity

Hey KickStarter,

Thanks for checking out our project!

The Problem:

There are so many Ipad cases out there currently on the market. Some are huge and bulky. These cases take the feel and easy use away from the Ipad.

On the other hand, you have cases that are just incomplete. They only cover the front. They cost just as much as a case that covers both the front and back, but they only do half the job. What about the back? This makes no sense.

How about a case that does it all? Folds, Protects and Looks Great!

The Origami Slate case from Slate&Stylus is

  • An unique innovative design
  • Compatible with both, the iPad 2 and the New iPad
  • Lined with a soft microsuede interior to protect screen
  • Polyurethane Canvas material provides ample protection
  • Embedded with magnets in the front cover that puts your iPad to sleep when you close it, and awake it when you open it
  • Available in several colors, Black, Blue and Red. (More colors coming soon)

There are so many ways to fold and use this awesome case.

The many ways to use your Oragami Slate. With its unique fold you can use it on your shopping cart while shopping.

College Bookstores

Originally, when I came up with the idea I wanted to focus on College Bookstores. The more popular brands already have such a strong hold on the protective case market, how can little ol' us compete? So, I figured if we targeted a niche market such as college bookstores, and sold them our cases with their college logo on it that would be cool.

Its going to be a big challenge but we believe we can get college logo branded Origami Slate cases in every College Bookstore in the nation. We need your support to make it happen.

Why Colleges?

Because students are tired of going to their college bookstores and seeing the same traditional products of the college logo t-shirt, sweatshirt and mug. They want products that will appeal to them, and our cases are the best product for the job.

Only Colleges?!

Truth is, we don't know. We might sell the plain cases online after the KickStarter campaign. We have been getting such a large demand for our cases that we really have to consider whats the best path to take.

So for right now, yes... The cases will only be sold online for the duration of our KickStarter campaign.

The Origami Slate doubles as case and a stand for the iPad. Simply fold the cover back, chose which way you want it and enjoy your perfect typing and/or viewing angle. 

The Origami Slate is thin enough so it won't weigh you and your Ipad down. Yet, it also has a protective cushion in the back and is made of out of very durable polyurethane canvas. We hope you enjoy the Origami Slate case as much as we do!

FAQ

  • Hey guys and gals! Unfortunately the Origami Slate case is not compatible with the original iPad.

    If we get a large demand for it, we will definitely look into making them!

  • Currently we're waiting for Kickstarter to process the pledges. Once that step of the process is complete, we can place our first order. As soon as we receive that order we will be shipping them out to our backers. We'll be keeping everyone up to date via our twitter https://twitter.com/slateandstylus and our Facebook http://www.facebook.com/SlateandStylus. Don't worry, we've got you covered!

  • We’ve gone as far as we can on this project with the funding we’ve got. One thing we haven’t done yet however are the “Lab Dips”. Thats when we dye the polyurethane canvas and test to be sure it holds the color for years (as planned). Making samples in color is also part of this stage. We’ll send pictures of the actual Origami Slate in each color before shipping though so you can choose, but that probably won't happen until after the Kickstarter ends.

  • Sure do. The reward levels were set with US shipping in mind though, but add $15 to your total donation and we should be good. Please also note that, as tariffs and import fees can vary by country, they are not covered either. You might want to look them up in advance before ordering.
