MusicSkins announces new Customizer tool for skinning devices

Customization was one of the major selling points T-Mobile USA pushed during the myTouch3g coming out party, specifically the customizable back plates to style up the phone. The T-Mobile G1 also has some customization options from the new MusicSkins Customizer that creates vinyl skins from personal photos, graphics, and artwork selected by consumers.

While T-Mobile plans to sell interchangeable shells for the myTouch3g, MusicSkins – already known for selling device skins with major recording artists like Bob Marley, Coldplay John Lennon, and others – lets any suitable image uploaded to the service become a skin for select devices (myTouch not supported yet). Users simply upload their image to the Customizer tool to have it turned into a “premium quality vinyl that provides a high-gloss photo grade finish.”

Ranging in price from $15 to $30 USD, the skins are placed onto the device easily and have anti-UV coating. MusicSkins Executive VP Jed Seifert had this to say in the company’s announcement:

“Personal electronic devices are the perfect canvas for expressing individuality, and MusicSkins has always been the source for the coolest skins…Now our Customizer introduces a fresh new twist on personalizing the electronic devices we all use every day, making it easy and fun for people to express themselves using their own favorite photos and images.”
