Have you ever seen a cool computer, phone, MP3/Video player or gaming console with a cool skin (decal) on it? Well here is a site that sells skins for it ALL! decalgirl.com

I found a cool site with some great prices to get every imaginable skin out there. I got a skin for my Zune. The decal was not only easy to put on but I've had it for a few months and no sign of any wear or it peeling up. It looks as good as the day I purchased it. It also came with a code and a website so you could download the matching wallpaper. See here is my zune front and back (with THIS skin):

ipod skins zune skins

See how cool the wallpaper is - it runs right off the edge to blend in with the skin. I paid all of $6.99 for it

But like I said they have skins for everything - here are some examples from the site

laptop cell phone skins iphone skins

Re: Decorate your toy with a Skin

Awesome site! Thanks for sharing. I've already found a few skins I really like.
OT, how do you like your Zune compared to your iPods? I'm seriously considering one.

Re: Decorate your toy with a Skin

Well I have over the years owned 5 ipod videos. My 80gb ipod that was MY personal one died. Died as in dead and apple was basically no help but would gladly sell me a new one. Some things about apple I hate - like how you cant have it on more then one pc and other things. So when my ipod died I got a zune 120. OMG I love it. I will NEVER go back. I have two current working ipods (kids) and they want to trade theirs in for zunes.

Re: Decorate your toy with a Skin

The skin is about the thickness of duct tape and if you stick it wrong you can peal it and re-stick it. Its not a cling on but a vinyl sticker (so cleanable). It just a nice (cheap) way to dress up your toys :-)

There nice skins quality wise, I've seen (purchased) some crappy ones but these are really nice and they have great prices too.

Re: Decorate your toy with a Skin

here is another cool site to order skins from: Skinit.com

I really like this site because you can order the skin to the size of the part you need (such as the certain size laptop - pick by brand and model number).

I just ordered this one from SkinitSkinit for my laptop:

We worked out a deal with SkinitSkinit to give GeekDrop visitors a special link to get Free Shipping on all orders over $40. Enjoy!

Re: Decorate your toy with a Skin

Just added the skin to my laptop and I love it. It was kinda tricky to cut it. See I have a HP laptop that the HP logo lights up on the front and well I cant cover that so I had to cut around it. Here it is:

You can better see the skin in this picture but you couldn't see the light up logo so I wanted to post them both.

Once I put the skin on I ran a credit card over it to remove any air bubbles - it was easy as can be Smile

Re: Decorate your toy with a Skin

OK and for the guys out there here is another look (friends computer)

Here is the skin from Skinit.com

and here is what it looks like on the laptop - now note we cut out the bottom corner for the HP logo to shine though (its a light up logo)
