GelaSkins (http://www.gelaskins.com/) is showing at Macworld, offering their custom art skins for their MacBooks, iPhones and iPods. They showed how the vinyl adhesive comes on and off and won't wear out over time. iPod covers come with fronts and backs, and they also offer matching iPhone wallpapers. The artwork is original and outsourced to a number of artists (http://www.gelaskins.com/artists.php).

Pricing ranges from $12.95 to $29.95

I never thought a case on my iPhone was ideal so I put a Gelaskin on back and Crystal PowerSupport on front...it still looks great 3 months later!

They look awesome. I think I'm about to get the mario and luigi one for my iPod Video. It looks awesome. And the screen is slightly messed up so it goes with the theme.

These are very nice, one of my mates picked some up for his iPhone..

only thing that puts me off them is that they don't show the awesomeness of the glowing apple logo on the back of my macbook :(

I love these guys too:


Being a designer myself, I enjoy the fact that I can upload my own design.
Who's not a fan of custom laptops? :)

Yeh these are great I use them to doctor on white 4th gen 40Gb pods when I tire of the pristine look. They turn ipods into avatars du jour...

See this is why we are not really going to have a full recession. Zillions of us are still out there buying skins for iPods and cases for iPhones and different earbuds and speakers. The FedEx guy has to deliver them... has to stop for fast food... the fast food clerk has to buy gas... and a lottery ticket...

Or else maybe this is just how we're not going to NOTICE we're in a recession.
