Unique Skins Giveaway

A few weeks ago we had some of our college friends over for a get-together.   One of our friends has an iPhone, and since he doesn’t have kids and isn’t accident prone like me, he doesn’t need a big bulky case to protect it.  But he didn’t want it to get all scratched up either.  So he found this little gem of a website, and made pretty, unique cover to protect his phone.

On UniqueSkins.com, you can create a custom vinyl skin for your electronic devices.  You choose the type of skin you want(cell phone, ipod, laptop, flip, etc) and then design it in the very user friendly designer application.  They have several backgrounds to choose from or you can upload your own artwork, background or photograph.

I ordered a skin for my Blackberry and one for my mom’s Dell Mini, and I LOVE them both.  I put a picture of my kids on both of them, and for only $6.99(for my BlackBerry Pearl) I can get one for each season and not feel bad about it.  (Although I should note that the website says that they’ll last for about 6-9 months on mobile devices with regular use and years on gaming consoles and laptops!)

See how cute this is??  (The kids, the computer and the UniqueSkin are all cute.  Right??)


So…why am I even telling you all about this?  Well, when I find a product I love, I want to tell everybody else about it.  I want to share some of the awesome with my friends…so I contacted UniqueSkins.com and declared my love for their product and asked if they would be willing to give a little somethin’ to one of my lucky readers.  And they said yes!
