2004-12-04 - Golden, CO, USA: If you type 'personalised PDA' into an internet search engine, it is likely that you will get a great number of websites offering downloads of various kinds. However, a company in Colorado has turned its attention to personalising the outside of PDA's and other personal devices. SkinIt Inc. has launched the new superstore, to target a broad audience of portable electronic consumers interested in changing the physical appearance of their devices through the use of adhesive vinyl “skins”.

SkinIt “skins” are manufactured utilising professional grade vinyl, which is printed through a professional 6-color process with vibrant and sharp designs. The skin is then coated with a scratch proof finish and custom-cut creating a product that fits the specific device perfectly and last for years.

“By utilising SkinIt technology a consumer can now change the physical appearance of their mobile phone, MP3 player, PDA, satellite radio, portable game device, or any other personal electronic device,” said Mike Stemple, Co-Founder of SkinIt Inc. “With hundreds of supported mobile devices and 1000’s of custom designs there is a SkinIt for every person and every occasion.”

Consumers can purchase a SkinIt to personalise their mobile device through, the companies own personalisation portal and soon at thousands of retail outlets using PIN cards redeemable at, as well as through private labeled carriers, hardware manufacturers, and retailer websites.
