i created the abstract design above in Photoshop for a custom skin to put on my new Macbook Pro and had it printed through DecalGirl.com.
never been a fan of the bulkier “shell” style cases, though they do offer more protection. hopefully this will at least keep it scratch-free. i’ll update this post with how it turns out.
since DecalGirl doesn’t offer a bottom, i ordered a black carbon fiber style from http://icoverskin.com
received the skins and got them applied. the bottom and top went smoothly, but the inside was sort of a PITA.
i ended up with the outer strip of the right speaker a little crooked. as soon as it touched, it grabbed hold pretty good – so when i went to pull that part up, i stretched the material. i had to cut out a little section to get it to lay flat.
overall i’m very happy with it though! it’s an inexpensive way to make something uniquely yours.
