  • Story Leather: Belt Clip Styles

    Posted on February 7, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    We hope everyone is doing well this week. It's hard to believe that the new year started and its already February.

    To wrap up this week I wanted to share another video our team did. The previous videos showed off the different phone case styles and how to guides. This time the team decided to make a video showing off the various back clip styles, although not all are belt clips.

    Without further delay, here it is!

     

    Without repeating too many details from the video:

    Our large metal belt clip is designed to accommodate standard 1.5 inch belts and is as sturdy as they come.

    The belt clip with anti slip is a special design that allows to a small belt clip to work in unison with a leather strap to add just that extra bit of security.

    For the fashion conscious our belt insert is a flushed design that allows for a sleek design .

    Lastly, the belt loop works just like the insert, but it allows a bit more maneuverability with a wider loop while maintaining a sleek profile.

     

    We hope you enjoyed this short video! For for info on our various phone case styles you can visit our website at www.storyleather.com. To see stories like this and other stories we post you can check out our Facebook and Twitter!

  • Showcase: Google Wallet

    Posted on February 5, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello from Story Leather, I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

    Some of you remember that we talked a bit about Coin and their new take on the credit card. This time we figured we'd look at Google Wallet! We know that Google Wallet has been out for a while now, but I finally got around to ordering the card and downloading that app; so lets take a look.

     

    (Image provided by Android Guys)

    Google Wallet, for the most part, uses Near Field Communication (NFC) to do most transactions; however, Google has also provided the option for you to order a Google Wallet card and its free. This card compliments the app because not many places will have a machine that can readily use the NFC tech aside from some fast food chains and convenience stores. I wanted to note that the Google card won't work as a substitute for your debit card, in fact the Google card is linked to your Google Wallet, I will explain that feature a bit more when we go into the features and benefits. With the basics aside lets dive into all the features that make Google Wallet so unique.

     

     

    One of the first features we wanted to talk about is that Google Wallet can store multiple credit and debits cards on the app for easy access. The one drawback is that your stored cards can only be used with an NFC terminal, which most places have yet to adopt. Places that I have seen with NFC capability are fast food restaurants and most convenience stores which make things a bit faster and convenient.

    Another feature of Google Wallet is the debit card and the Google wallet account. Google wallet has it's own separate account aside from your stored credit and debit cards and you're able to transfer funds into to use on a daily basis. What's unique is that Google gives the option to have a debit card that is linked to your Wallet. This comes in handy in places that don't have an NFC terminal.

    One great benefit to using Google Wallet over your traditional card is that you're able to control you're spending. I find myself eating out quite a lot and I never really know how much I spend until its too late. Luckily with Google Wallet I just give myself a month or weekly allowance and once I use it up then that's it for the time being. It's a really helpful tool for those trying to save up as well. One would just deposit money into the Wallet account and let is accumulate until you hit your target.

     

     

     

     

    One last feature we wanted to show off, because there're are way to many to go through in one round, are the offers you can get from using Google Wallet. In the app there's a section that lists special offers for food, clothing, and many other services. This includes special deals or discounts that are redeemable upon check out. This eliminates the need to carry around coupon clippings or printed email offers! This helps me quite a bit because I am able to search for any offers in my area instead of clipping coupons and going to one specific place.

    Overall Google Wallet is an amazing app that makes saving, paying and shopping much easier; as it says on the website; "Shop, Save, and Pay with your Phone." I don't think it gets much simpler than that.

     

     

    For more info on Google Wallet you can visit their website, www.google.com/wallet, or if you have a question you can visit their FAQ and see if someone already asked it for you. I hope everyone enjoyed this mini review of the Google Wallet and for more stories please visit our blog, Facebook, and Twitter.

    I hope everyone has a great week and I'll be finding other cool stuff to show you soon!

  • Showcase: Tech Shows You!

    Posted on February 3, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello to everyone from Story Leather. Happy February!

    We thought we would do a showcase this week featuring TechShowsYou, a tech blog run by a duo of extraordinary friends, Keegan Donley and Abraham Zuniga. These amazing guys put a great deal of work into their videos, tech news, and their product reviews. In doing so they leave no details out as they meticulously go through every article, how to guide, or product review.

     

     

    In this post I want to go over some of the things they cover, but to get all their coverage you can visit their website www.techshowsyou.com.

    One of the first things you'll notice is they cover a wide array of topics from MAC/PC, tablets, mobile devices, and all the way to any tech related news. They shine in their videos because they review some of the latest products including some products that some might not even know about, I believe they are looking a paint brush for tablets next? Their reviews are also very informative because they give a slight how to in all their videos.

    Another portion of their web content is on tech news, any and all. Keegan and Abraham do an amazing job at being up to date with all the tech know how and tech related products. Not only is their information top quality, but their work looks amazing. Their website and videos stem from a lot of hard work and dedication.

    To showcase their amazing work, we wanted to share a video they did on one of our cases, iphone 5/5s holster with our leather backcover.

     

    As you can see, their video's are precise in both information and workmanship. We look forward to to seeing more product reviews as well as coverage on new tech and accessories. Thank you to all of our readers and we'll be posting more later this week.

    To keep up with TechShowsYou you can follow their Twitter, Facebook, Youtube Channel, or Website. If you're interested in the dynamic duo then you can follow Keegan's Twitter and Abraham's Twitter

  • Showcase: Typo Keyboard

    Posted on January 30, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello from all of us at Story Leather, we hope this week is shaping up very nicely everyone.

    Today I thought I might talk about something that I think is pretty cool, the Typo Keyboard. Over the past month we've received a lot of orders asking that we make a phone case holster that can hold the Typo Keyboard, so one of our guys thought; "wow that's quite a few orders, we should check it out". Of course by the time I checked it out the pre-orders were sold out, so I'm in line as it were, but I thought I'd take a look and highlight some of the key features of the Typo Keyboard. Before I get into my thoughts, here is a video from Typo that gives a quick glimpse of their product.

    TYPO PRODUCTS - iPhone Keyboard Case from Typo on Vimeo.

     One of the first things I immediately liked was the design. From seeing the video and pictures it doesn't add much to the bulk. Another highlight of the design is that it gives back the full view of the screen. I've seen other keyboard attachments in the past, but it requires that the keyboard be placed right over the digital keyboard. Pretty sure that defeats the purpose of using a keyboard that will always take up half the screen. With Typo, it allows for a full view of the screen while the device is attached; I think that's pretty unique. Overall, the keyboard keeps the slim sleek design that iPhone users have come to appreciate while keeping the product functionality.

    (Image provided by whatsupmarkets.com)

    A second feature that was worth mentioning is the dedicated battery they built into the Typo. I originally thought that it would use the iPhone's battery, but Typo has an independent battery pack to keep from draining the phones battery. From the FAQ, they have said that the keyboard would require charging every 7-14 days depending on use, not shabby since texting takes up a majority of my time as it is. Included in the package of course are all the USB charging cables and because it uses a standard micro USB charging cable you won't have to fret if you happen to misplace that cable.

    (Image provided by theverge.com)

    One last detail I wanted to highlight is that the backlight on the keyboard. I know that doesn't seem like it should be something to get excited over, but it's one of those details that when overlooked becomes a problem. So I for one am glad that this detail was not overlooked.

    In summary, Typo Keyboard looks like to does everything as promised: provides a platform for faster typing, minimizes typing errors, simplistic design that doesn't add bulk, allows full use of the screen, dedicated battery, and a backlit keyboard. These are just some of the details I was able to glean on from other sources. I'm hoping that once I get my hands on one I can get a better look and feel as to how the Typo Keyboard works.

    (Image provided by digitaltrends.com)

    This is just one person's view of the Typo, of course others have been able to get their hands on it, like pcmag.com. Once the new pre-orders are available then I'll have to make sure that I get in line for one. As of now the current price listing for a Typo Keyboard is $99 and current pre-orders are sold out. For more info on their product you can visit their website.

    Thank you for taking some time to look at Typo and we will be bring you more gadget reviews soon!

  • Style Stories: Tesia

    Posted on January 28, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello from all of us here at Story Leather. We can't believe how fast January has already come and gone and now February is quickly approaching.

    That's why for this week we bring you a slight twist in our style stories. When we interviewed Meg Turney last week we got a glimpse into a very Do it yourself (DIY) person, she made some of her clothes and most of all she made her own costumes! So we thought we'd follow along with that theme and bring you Tesia Trisnadi, a DIY blogger who loves to show everyone the fun of doing things yourself. So lets take a peek into her world:

     


    SL (Story Leather):
    We love the whole look and feel of your blog, the DIY projects and recipes are some of our favorite. That being said, “How do you come up with these ideas?”

    Tesia: Thank you! I find inspiration from old book stores, walking around the flea market, kind of wherever I go! Anything that looks neglected (antiques, vintage) I immediately start thinking how I can revamp it.

    SL: In keeping with a DIY theme do you also make some of your own clothing to fit your style or do you simply find the pieces you like and mix and match from there?

    Tesia: I’m not a huge sewer, I stick mainly with pillows (haha) but for style, I like to dip my hand in multiple types of style. I can call in my inner grunge, then switch for a chic night look! I definitely mix & match, I don’t really like to stay in one style rut.

    SL: Do you have any recommendations for people looking to get started on their own DIY projects?

    Tesia: Don’t concentrate on what you can’t do. Try out any DIY’s that interest you. Some of the projects will fail & others will succeed! It’s just getting used to failure and rising above it. If one person can do that DIY, you can do it as well.

    SL: What got you started on the DIY projects? Did your friends or family play a role as to how you got started?

    Tesia: Mmm, I started doing DIY’s because I saw a few home décor items that are way overpriced and I thought to myself, “I can definitely make that myself”. From that one thought, it sparked my imagination for trying to recreate things in a different way, through my own style.

    SL: Our last question is just something I think is very fun to get people’s input on; “What are 3 items you think every guy and girl should have. Whether it be on them at all times or jus tin general?”

    Tesia: 1. A notebook & pen: to jot down ideas, sketches, & your favorite words!

    2. Agenda: whether it be on your iphone or an actual planner; organize!

    3. Chapstick/Lipstick: Just to put some color onto your face!

    SL: Thank you so much Tesia for giving us some insight into your DIY life!

    Tesia: Your welcome, its always great to share ideas!

     

    (Tesia and her pet dog Puggie)

    There are so many ways that we can express ourselves and its great when we're able to share those ideas because  someone somewhere might share in that interest as well. By sharing our ideas we're able to connect and learn more form each other and today we certainly learned a lot from Tesia and hoe she likes to experience life. We'd like to think that by sharing each person's stories we're able to help connect our readers to each other and help create an atmosphere where ideas can be exchanged and grown.

    So as always "Tell us Your Story" and visit our blog to see all of our other stories and more.

    If you want to see more of Tesia's work you can visit her Blog, Youtube Channel, or Instagram for more info on her and her DIY tutorials.

  • Style Stories: Meg Turney!!!!

    Posted on January 21, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello to everyone from all of us at Story Leather. For this installment of our Style Stories we have the absolute pleasure to talk to the ever awesome SourceFed/SourceFed Nerd co-host, Slim-Jim girl, gamer, cosplayer, and everything geek....Meg Turney!!!

     

    (An awesome picture showing all of Meg's own creations)

    At the expense of waiting, lets take a glimpse at Meg's cosplay, work, and everyday wardrobe.

    SL: “We’re so glad you had some time to do this interview with us Meg; I think I’m just overly excited at a chance to not only interview you, but also a prominent cosplayer as well. So let’s get this going before I ramble. My first question is; what does style mean to you in general and what does it mean to you personally?”

    Meg: "I think my definitions of general and personal fashion are much the same. To me, fashion is a way to express yourself. It’s a way to add a pop of color to the grey. The beautiful thing about fashion (at least in my opinion) is that everyone has their own way of doing it. There are no rights and wrongs – it’s fluid."

    SL: “We know you love your anime and video games very much; how do you express that in your everyday casual wear as opposed to a nice night out (if you do)? We know you love Sailor Moon, would you dress up like a sailor scout everyday if you could or would you prefer Elizabeth from Bioshock?”

    Meg: "One of my favorite things to do is to dress up my anime/video game love. At work, I’m often just in a t-shirt and jeans and it’s easy to incorporate screen tees that scream nerdiness, but when you go out it’s a little more of a challenge. I have a few pieces that look just like regular decorative jewelry to people who don’t know, but when nerds walk up they’re like “Holy crap! Is that a Tower of Pimps necklace?!” I love that! I’d totally dress in the sailor fuku everyday – Elizabeth is beautiful, but corsets everyday? No thanks."

    SL: “Speaking of cosplay…when you cosplay, does that style reflect in how you make your costumes or does accuracy take the cake? For instance, I loved how accurate your Chun Li and Elizabeth costumes were, but your Mulan was amazingly interpreted because every time I think of Mulan I think of the Disney Version.”

    Meg: "If I’m just creating a character’s outfit that already exists, accuracy is put above all else. If it’s my own take on a character - for instance the Mulan I did was a superhero version, so I got to make up the design myself – I like to play and have fun with it. Lately I've been a little looser with accuracy for the sake of picking more character-accurate pieces, though. Like with Judy, I went with a snakeskin print on the leather fabric for the skirt because Judy’s such a flashy character and I thought it suited her personality a little better. I also opted for a linen fabric for the jacket instead of a plain cotton blend because I thought it felt a little more high class."

     

    (Amazing cosplay of Chun- Li)

    SL: “So aside from the awesome things you do on your youtube channel, you’re also a co-host for Sourcefed/Sourcefed Nerd. Seeing as how there are a plethora of awesome people as well as other co-hosts, how does your style differ from that of Lee, Trisha, or anyone else at the office of awesome?”

    Meg: "Everyone at SF has their own unique style. I probably dress the most relaxed of all the girls, but Trisha and Lee have convinced me to buy a skirt or three since I started working there. We’re always trading style tips or things we’re currently obsessed with. It’s super helpful."

     

    (Here's Meg covering the 2012 RNC)

    SL: “In keeping with the current times, we live in an interesting point where nerd and geek chic is in. What are some nerdy/geeky items you think that every girl or guy should have? What about an everyday wear item?”

    Meg: "That’s all up to what you’re into. My biggest suggestion is to go to etsy and find jewelry that reflects your interests. Don’t think just because you love Doctor Who that you’re relegated to plastic pieces that would never go with an evening gown. There are all sorts of gorgeous, classy designs that are fandom related, too! For everyday items, I think everyone needs an amazing hoodie. It sounds so silly, but I live in hoodies, so having one I love is important."

    SL: “Yes hoodies would seem to be very important because you always mention how the SF office is an icebox.”

    SL: “I can go on and on with questions for you, but alas we have to bring things to a close. So my last question would be; what advice would give to someone who is trying to balance mainstream fashion with their inner geek/nerd?”

    Meg: "I might sound like a broken record at this point, but look for a balance between nerdy and something you’ll actually wear. Also, I sometimes try to pick an outrageous accessory and build an outfit around it. So, don’t be afraid to get something a little flashier and most of all HAVE FUN!"

    SL: “Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy life to talk to us about what makes you unique.”

    Meg: "Thanks so much for having me!! <3"

     

     

    (Hard at work while co-host Steve Zaragoza sends his love)

    We couldn't thank Meg enough for taking time out of her busy schedule to talk to us about her style and her amazing cosplay work. As with all our Style Stories we want to help give insight for those trying to find what's right for them. For some it might be a professional look, others might have a more laid back casual jeans and t-shirt feel, whereas another set might share Meg's Nerd and Geek fashion taste.

    Just remember, whatever you wear it's important to always feel comfortable and Meg put it best when she said; "The beautiful thing about fashion (at least in my opinion) is that everyone has their own way of doing it. There are no rights and wrongs – it’s fluid." We couldn't agree more.

    Thank you Meg for being a part of our Style Stories and as always "Tell us your Story". From all of us at Story Leather, "Have an amazing day and a wonderful week."

  • A How To: Properly Fit your Phone

    Posted on January 16, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Hello from all of us at Story Leather.

    Today we wanted to address one of our frequently ask questions: How to properly put in your phone into our Cartera, Perris, and Surrey phone cases. We understand that most other companies use a hard-shell case made, but the full leather frame is what makes these phone cases very unique.

    To help everyone we decided to make a how to video showing everyone how to put the phone into the case.

     

     

    We hope this helps give everyone a more visual look as to how to fit your phone in. From all of us at Story Leather, have a great week and "Tell us your Story"

  • Tell us Your Story: Wayne

    Posted on January 14, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Here at Story Leather we always love seeing all the unique design combinations that everyone comes up with. Its even better when we hear back from someone about the case they made.

    This is why were were excited to hear back from Wayne H., he had recently ordered a case from us and now he wanted to "Tell us His Story", here's what he had to say...

    Dear Story Leather,

    I was very pleased and surprised with the quality of workmanship.
    Also the quality of the leather used is excellent. I had thought your company might use
    Imitation leather and call it leather, but that was not the case.
    The leather is top quality and will give me many years of service.
    Please keep up your quality work. It is unusual today to find a company that
    makes top quality products. Yours are second to none.
    Thanks for the opportunity to address your products.
    Wayne H.
    From all of us at Story Leather we wanted to thank you Wayne for letting us share his story. We hope everyone has a wonderful day and as always please "Tell us your Story" by using this link, and when doing so you will also get a $20 gift certificate as a thank you.
