  • Working Hard on Apple iPhone 8 Cases

    Posted on August 14, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    With Apple's announcement not coming until next month, everyone in the industry seems to have jumped the gun and started the frenzy with the new iPhone 8 cases.  Here at Story Leather, we are also doing our own due diligence and working on "prototyping" for the all-new iPhone 8.

    With leaks about the specifications of the iPhone 8 coming out daily, most industry professionals are certain that the form factor is no longer a secret, and many case makers are proceeding with production on iPhone 8 cases.  At Story Leather, we are planning on taking a more conservative approach.  We are doing our prototyping, but we are not releasing or taking orders until Apple officially releases the phone.  The last thing we want is to make a custom leather case that doesn't fit your shiny new toy! Stay tuned, and we can't wait till the September announcement!

    Stay tuned...More to Come....

  • Travel Light for the Summer with the Our New Line of Ready-to-Ship Goods

    Posted on June 29, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    Summer is upon us and we have produced a line of goods for all the travelers out there. More importantly, we are embarking on a new concept to encourage people to carry less and travel light.  With our new line of goods, starting with the Journey, the idea behind it was to not having to carrying a thick wallet, and simply carry the essential with you - credit cards, driver's license, and perhaps a Starbucks card if you still have one! 
     
    When it comes to consolidation, the all-new Dakota v2 is a keeper!  Loved by everyone, this is literally the end all and be all carrier to consolidate your smart phone, wallet, ear buds, usb cable, etc. Sized big enough to carry everything, yet still slim and minimal, go with the trend and get one of these and stop shoving the iPhone 7 into your back pocket!
     
    The best part with the Dakota v2, it comes with a removable slim card wallet, similar to the Journey, only even smaller.  The ultimate carrier when you want to just carry an ID and a $20 bill; perfect for night out without having to worry about leaving anything behind.
     
    Last but not least, we have the Voyager passport wallet, with summer travels, take one of these passport holders with you! Integrating the same slim card wallet design, you can store all your belongings - passport, boarding pass, foreign currencies, SIM card in this all-in-one wallet, and when it's time to get out for a beer, just take the slim wallet and off you go! Happy travels with Story Leather!

  • We can't get enough of iPhone 8 rumors and news!

    Posted on June 22, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    Seems like we can never get enough of iPhone 8 news. But judging by all the emails that we receive from 3rd party casing companies out of China, it looks like the final design of the iPhone 8 is finalized and confirmed, and this information has already been leaked out to the factories. Below are some of the iPhone 8 cases that overseas factories are soliciting for sale:

    and a recent article on Forbes also further confirms our observation that phone case vendors are already beginning to list iPhone 8 cases for sale.

    Here at Story Leather, we will ALWAYS wait until the official release just to make sure the cases that we provide to our customers will be the right and perfect fit.  The iPhone 8 will be a beautiful phone with larger screen, wireless charging, and better water-proofing. Rest assured that we will be taking custom orders for iPhone 8 leather cases and holsters as soon as Apple makes their official announce in Fall.

  • All New Apple iPad Pro 10.5" and 12.9" (2nd Gen.)

    Posted on June 8, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    The iPad Pro 10.5-inch and the 12.9-inch have been unveiled at Apple's WWDC 2017.

    The designs are more or less the same, except for the internal hardware upgrading making for a faster and more powerful model. But aesthetically, they remained the same.
     
    What is new this time around is the introduction of the 10.5-in., and this is getting people excited. Many felt the 12.9 was way too big and heavy, while the 9.7 didn't give a big enough canvas for drawings and real professional work. Taking cues, Apple gave us the 10.5 in., slightly bigger, but more powerful than ever!
     
    Many customers have already been asking us about custom leather cases for the 10.5. Today we are announcing that we are now taking custom orders for both the new iPad Pro 10.5-in and also the 12.9-in (2nd Gen). The new 12.9-in is the same leather case as the one for the original 12.9, so customers of the old 12.9 leather cases can continue using their existing cases.

  • We are seeing more and more pictures of iPhone 8 cases on the market...already!

    Posted on May 30, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    We are seeing more and more photos of iPhone 8 cases leaking on the Internet. We, as a leather case maker ourselves, are also often solicited by factories overseas with iPhone 8 cases ready to ship! Although we are still 3-4 months away from Apple's formal announcement, one consistency that we are seeing is that the new iPhone 8 cases all have a vertically positioned dual camera hole. Other then this, it also appears to be quite consistent that the new iPhone 8 will be smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, but slightly bigger than the iPhone 7. At this time, nothing is confirmed but it seems like factories in China are pretty confident about these cases, for whatever reason.

    For now, we will just take these as rumors, but we would still love to continue to share with our audience on what we can expect from Apple when it comes September for Apple's formal announcement. Rest assured that when the iPhone 8 is officially released, our team will be ready to take custom orders for the iPhone 8!

  • New KickStarter Campaign Launched for the Dakota v2 Zipper Pocket

    Posted on May 24, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    We have just launched the KickStarter campaign for the Dakota v2 zipper pocket. We are anticipating to have the item be ready for general availability closer to end of June or early July. By joining our KickStarter campaign, you will be able to get in on the early bird special and receive our first batch of production releases.
     
    So what have we changed for v2?
     
    With the feedback received from our customers, we have made the following changes:
    1. We have made the Dakota slightly bigger to house iPhone 7 Plus with a slightly thicker case. We have learned that not all iPhone users use Apple's leather back cover.
    2. We have swapped out the silver plated zipper with a black gunmetal plated zipper for a more stylish and modern finish.
    3. We have made the cash pocket on the inside to allow for a slimmed down version of our Journey card wallet. So when you purchase the Dakota v2, it will come with a separate card wallet that is portable whenever you need to travel light.
    4. Dollar bills can now lay flat inside the Dakota v2.
     
    The original Dakota phone pocket was well received and liked and we are simply making a great product better! Join our KickStarter campaign today!

  • Dakota Version 2.0 to be Launched Next Week on KickStarter

    Posted on May 19, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    The old saying goes "If at first you don't succeed, Try, try, try again." Next week, we will be launching a brand new Kickstarter campaign for a refined version of our popular Dakota phone pocket. Last month, when we launched our Journey card wallet on KickStarter, we were able to gain some traction, but ultimately we failed to meet goal, and the campaigned ended with us disappointing the backers.  From the experience, we learned quite a bit, and we learned what to do and what not to do with crowdfunding campaign.

    From the experience gained from our first campaign, we will be launching a second campaign next week.  With a more thought-through planning and execution, we are hoping the outcome will be different in a dramatic way!  For now, I would like to invite our readers to preview the campaign and hopefully we will get some of our existing customers here on Story Leather to pledge to our next campaign once we finalize it next week.

    Here's a link to the preview: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/storyleather/1129537799?token=4fbd0d89

    Have a great weekend!

  • All the Buzz Around Apple's Upcoming iPhone 8

    Posted on May 5, 2017 by Jerry Lee

    Everyone is talking about the upcoming release of Apple's new iPhone, and yet we are only in May. With all the buzz and rumors around what Apple will have in store for us, let's summarize what we will expect:

    1. Alongside the brand new iPhone 8 or iPhone Edition, we will have the iPhone 7s and the 7s Plus

    2. The new iPhone 8 will have a new curved AMOLED display

    3. A 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen

    4. No HOME button

    5. Wireless charging

    6. Iris scanner

    All these are rumors and what "analysts" are speculating. Quite frankly, everyone is just looking for Apple to give us a new look to the iPhone. Call it whatever you want to call it, but just make sure the phone looks and feels different, and it will sell like hotcake when it comes September.
    Rest assured that when the new iPhone 8 comes out, our team of leather artisans will be ready to produce a fine line of custom leather holsters for iPhone 8, alongside our regular staple of classic leather cases and back cover for the iPhone 8. Stay tuned as we update you with more iPhone 8 news as it breaks.

  • We have just launched our first ever Kickstarter campaign!

    Posted on April 18, 2017 by Jerry Lee

     

    Here at Story Leather, we are embarking on a new journey as we look for a new method to provide a wider selection of ready-to-ship goods. We are often asked why is everything custom made to order? Why does it take 30 days for me to get something with my name on it? Why can't I just buy this nice wallet and get it tomorrow? These are questions that we ask ourselves often as well, and then one of our customers suggested to us why not use Kickstarter as a way to test and see if there's a market for your in-stock goods?

     

    Well, here we are, launching our first Kickstarter campaign for a new card wallet that we have designed. Our intention is to produce this card holder in mass quantity and price them fairly just so that it's easily approachable by first time Story Leather shoppers, and also serves as a value item for long time Story Leather customers. With these mass-produced items, we are able to achieve a greater economy of scale so that we can price them more competitively to other brands with similar offerings on the market. Again, we strongly believe that the quality of leather goods and craftsmanship truly will make our offerings an attractive and appealing proposition.

     

    Please come and support our Kickstarter campaign today.
