iPod and Phone Skins--Blemish Free and So Pretty!

When I got my new phone a few months back, I was sort of disappointed in the color options.

I think it came in blue and red, except I could only get blue. That's not exactly the most exciting thing for someone as "high-brow artist" as I am (that's sarcasm right there--if they had a hot pink option, we wouldn't be having this conversation).

So, I got obsessed with making a skin for it. You can find several places online that make custom skins for electronic devices. I had quite the ordeal finding a place that carried the shape of my Gravity Smart. I'm not a picky phone person, so I didn't know my phone is sort of obscure. Or at least, I'm guessing it is, based on the fact that no one bothered offering skins for it.

Anyway, I found a place, and then decided to go for making a skin for my iPod Touch too.

Skins are basically huge stickers that you can peel off eventually. Basically, you use their software to design them (I uploaded some of my digital scrapbook papers for mine) and they print a big sticker for you and you stick it on your phone. It's all the fun of bumper stickers, but without devaluing a car.

I actually haven't put the front on my phone yet, because I keep thinking I'm going to put on a nice clear screen cover, and then put the skin over that, since it just goes around the screen. Hasn't happened yet.

Fun, no? Makes me smile every time I pull them out. Makes them very easy to spot too.
