    Wink Made my own Macbook Pro Skin

    Hey folks!

    This is my first post here on AppleForums.net. I own a vinyl sign shop in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and yesterday I thought I would try my hand at making my own Macbook Pro skin. It turned out great as you can see :)

    I printed this design on vehicle wrap vinyl. It applied great, and the material is forgiving enough that it allowed me to apply and re-apply a couple times since I kept messing up.

    The only part that bugs me a little is the corners. I should have overprinted by an inch so I could stretch the corners and then trim with a razor knife. But instead I printed to the exact size of the lid so the corners ended up with a few wrinkles. I might be able to remove the wrinkles with a heat gun.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Thanks iDan! Ya know, I'm not sure yet :) I'd probably be around the $25 range, somewhere in there. We can create custom branded skins as well!

    Now that I know, that, since SweetPoison said they are a sponsor, they are looking cooler.
