Designs for Tandem t:slim!

I’ve been working with Emily and Scott over at Pump Peelz to try to create a way to make Pump Peelz for the Tandem t:slim. I already knew I loved their Dexcom Peelz as well as the ones for the Verio meter, so being able to add even more personalization to my insulin pump? Well, that would just be the icing on the cake to me.

A couple of weeks ago, they sent me a prototype to try out. I was ecstatic. I knew it was a potential product for them, but to actually get to try one out and see it in person was pretty awesome.


What was even more cool about them is that they are actually screen protectors and designs in one. Yep. That’s right. Since the t:slim is a touch-screen pump, you do need to try to have something on the screen to protect it against scratches and things that can interfere with the touch sensitivity of the pump. With having the ink printed directly onto the screen protector, this allows you to actually change the screen protector and not have to layer a peel on top of your existing one thus probably losing it if you ever wanted to change the design again. (And, if your screen protector that you have on it now is in good condition, you can also carefully remove it and simply save it on a piece of wax paper or baking parchment paper for later if you’d like).

The ink and process that is used to make the designs is actually pretty neat. These are printed in layers with a 3D printer – one of very few in the country. They start out printing the white, then add the other colors on top. It’s done similar to how 3D printers print Braille.

The fit wasn’t exactly perfect in the beginning,


but we took some additional measurements and we think we’ve got it right now.

Yesterday, they announced on their Pump Peelz Facebook page that they are ready to go,ย and I am excited to share this with you.

And, courtesy of Pump Peelz, I am also going to be hosting a give-away fro them! FIVEย randomly chosen (with a number generator) commenters canย win a Tandem t:slim screen protector Peelz! Just leave a comment below to enter. That’s it! We’ll let you know by Friday who the winners are.

Happy t:slimming! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Thanks for working on this. My 11 year old daughter and I both have the t:slim and were talking about how cool it would be to have a design on them. If for no other reason, it would help us tell them apart. LOL

  3. Loving these! Can’t wait to get my son the Lego Peelz for his pump and his Dexcom. We’ve had the green monsters on his Dex for several months so it’s a good time to change it up!
