Solid Products ( has announced ArtCase, a new line of US$50 iPad cases that features works of art by select artists.

Starting with San Francisco mural art by Brian Barneclo, Solid Line will feature select works by a single artist for an entire month. The works are printed onto cases designed for the original iPad and the iPad 2. The patent-pending design enables the addition of a Bluetooth keyboard.

“We like to think of ArtCase as a new canvas for artists,” says Henry Lo, CEO of Solid Line Products. “While we’ll feature only one artist a month, this new ‘canvas’ is open to all artists, graphic designers, and photographers. The artists can create art cases that they can then market to their respective communities.”

Similar to a hardback book cover, ArtCase is made with recycled materials and is available for the original iPad and iPad 2. The artwork is printed onto the iPad cases using environmentally friendly inks. Customers have the option of adding Solid Line Products’ RightShift keyboard, named for the right shift key that’s often missing in comparable products but which is necessary for touch typing.
