    Does anyone know of any places that already have a Thunderbolt decal that would go around the Apple on the back of my new ThunderBook?

    Maybe something like this, Intel's version in black with a cutout for the Apple Logo?


    Or even some sort of cool, black silhouette style lightning design. Maybe a big, fat lightning bolt going vertical down the center third of the back of my 15" with a cutout for the Apple logo.

    What about doing it myself? What is the best material to print on? I'm a design student with a decent printer and good exacto blade skills. What type of decal material works well for this, like the ones commonly found on Would it work well on an inkjet (I have a Canon Pro9000 mk II), or would I be better off buying a black decal and cutting it out of the material by hand or by drawing on it with sharpie to outline? Thanks.

    research local import car clubs that can do custom stickers. here in houston theres a place called underground graphics that will do any custom image you have as a decal for 10$ starting price.

    Hmm good luck with that, this is a trademarked logo of some sort, cutting this would be very illegal. I doubt anyone with half a brain would cut this. I have been cutting custom vinyl graphics for a while now and always reject business that involves something trademarked or copywritten. Not worth the $10,000
    + it could cost.
