We guitarists are a strange breed. We are VERY particular about our guitars and gear. Right down to the colour and shade. We are also proud of our beloved axes, often displaying pictures of them on our mobile device home screens and on our computer desktops as rather fetching wallpaper (in our own humble opinions of course!).

Guitar Excellence has been leading the field for years now with regard to cutting-edge technology. Our Platinum lessons make use of iPads – and the wide range of guitar-oriented apps available – to greatly enhance the learning experience.

If only there was some way to marry this obsession with our personally customised guitars, or brand affiliations, with this valuable technological resource…

Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce: WRAPPZ!

The folks at allow you to hop online and design your very own case or skin for your smartphone, tablet or what have you:

GE was kindly allowed to try this out for ourselves, and the entire experience proved easy and fun. We visited and decided to design a Guitar Excellence skin for one of our iPads. We love the idea of not only offering our device protection but, also carrying around a mobile advertisement for our company. Of course, the options in terms of personalization are endless, as any image can be selected for your skin/case, and any text added.

We found that our initial image, after a follow-up email to monitor the progress of our design, was somewhat lacking in resolution (some pixelation), but this was quickly sorted out by selecting an image with a higher resolution. This was because we used a small image (our logo) and stretched it to fill our iPad surface area. It is important to remember that in such cases, in order to avoid pixelation, a high-resolution image should be used.

The online process is a very clear and easy step-by-step design of your choice of device and the website is attractive and easy to navigate. It took us no time at all and then we simply depended on the mercies of the local post to get our skin to us. Within the week, we had the package in our hands and went about applying the skin to the iPad. What we really like about wrappz is that they are very easy to apply and air bubbles are easily avoided. This is not always the case with some of the skins on the market and we were pleasantly surprised by how easily we managed to accomplish the task at hand. “Easy on easy off” indeed! And the skin can be removed at any time, without leaving residue. Fantastic!

We have been very happy with our unique iPad skin and recommend you jump in and have fun designing your own. Visit to see how it all works for yourself and for pricing details.

Rock on in style!
