Users can design their own skins for laptops, gaming consoles, phones and more by using websites such as SkinIt.com and Schtickers.com. These websites allow users to upload their own images to create custom skins for multiple devices and have the company mail them directly to their houses.
SkinIt.com is a company that specializes in direct-to-consumer products. Its equipment allows it to take custom orders from consumers online and turn them into skins for thousands of devices, such as MP3 players, cameras, gaming devices, cellphones and computers. However, consumers don't have to upload their own custom images to use SkinIt.com because the website has thousands of unique designs.
Much like SkinIt.com, Schtickers.com allows users to upload“.jpg, .png, .bmp or .ai image formats to create custom skins. The company recommends that users upload large images because they are unable to enlarge small images without making them blurry. Orders typically take three days to process. Shipping times vary depending on the shipping rate that customers choose at checkout and the locations of the customers.
Laptops such as Apple notebooks that feature glowing emblems are visible through the skins that Schtickers.com makes. To counteract this, consumers can request a square piece of material to place between the skin and the laptop to block the glowing emblem.
