My custom M6 skin arrived. GREAT!
 
Hello!

The protective skin kit I ordered from Eaco designs last tuesday arrived this morning, and I promptly applied it on my M6. Wow! I wasn't expecting it to look so great. The printing is high resolution indeed: I can see no blurring, pixelating or noise at the edges of the images, and the color reproduction is very good (at least for my eyes). The touchpad didn't lose any responsiveness and the surface of the player isn't a fingerprint magnet anymore.

I'm very happy with the product, and I'm going to create a custom artwork for my M3 too (a black one this time). The guy at Eaco designs is very nice to deal with and answers the emails pretty fast.

Here are some pics: (my camera doesn't do macro and I'm not that good at taking pictures, so they don't do justice to the actual product ;))

NICE! That really looks nice.. how much did it cost? link to site?

Damn... O_O Looks great! Yeah how much did it cost huh? ^^

Hello, Captain and SamsungLover!

The guy is on eBay. The skin costs $10 plus S&H ($1 for US, and $2 for the rest of the world).

I'm designing the skin for my M3 (black) right now. I've got a picture of an old Edison phonograph and I'll use it on the back plate. For the front, I'm thinking about using some big speakers... I expect to place my order this week. As soon as I get my M3 customized I'll post pictures of it as well! :cool:

Are there these skins for other types of mp3 players? Like for my Samsung Z5? =D

Almoxil 06-30-2007 06:22 PM

I don't know, but the guy sells skins for other gadgets. Go to his eBay page and ask him. Maybe he can do something for your Z5! :)

Edit: He's currently selling skins for Meizu (M3 & M6), Teclast (T29), that player whose name I can't say (5th generation one), Motorola RAZR V3 and LG VX8500 Chocolate.

Very nice .

Sorry , just wandering - you didn't left any feedback ?
I wasn't sure is that the same seller then now I could see that you mentioned his nick .
I supposed it's the same . How did you choose this design .. it's not part of his designs... Did you send him pictures and he / she agree to printed..:-)

Cheers !

By the way good taste , I liked it too :-)

Almoxil 07-02-2007 10:55 PM

About the lack of feedback to him, I haven't done the purchase through eBay. First, I asked him some questions about the product, payment and shipping (through eBay). Then, we agreed that I would send him the files for the custom artwork and make the payment via Paypal, and he would print, finish and send me the skins. And so we did.

I would like leaving the feedback a lot, but I didn't "win" the product on eBay, so I can't do that... That's one of the reasons I'm posting the pictures of my M6 with the skin here and at MeizuMe.com -- I want to let people know about a great product and a great seller from eBay.

About the artwork, I thought that since I was buying a custom skin, it would be a good idea to have my own artwork printed. Not that I don't like his designs, but I wanted to experiment with different ideas (the pickup on the front, for example).

Regards!

Thank you . I was just curious , I know what you are saying is genuine :)
I will think and if I use it I will leave some feedback there ;-p)
.. positive most possible :p

Almoxil 07-03-2007 04:37 PM

I just received an email from the guy at Eaco designs (or eacoskins -- seller name at eBay). He has already shipped the skin kit for my M3. I hope I'll post the pics next weekend. :)

Great , I will love to see it !

Dima_Meizu 07-03-2007 08:14 PM

Looks very good ^^

Slothuus 07-08-2007 08:41 AM

Old thread, but it looks nice.
Looks like there is no protection on the top and bottom though?
Perhaps I should get such a skin too.

Almoxil 07-08-2007 08:06 PM

Actually, the M6 comes with a protective skin from the factory. It's very well applied and will stand normal use well. The problem is that it's a fingerprint magnet. Once I applied the custom skin, this problem was solved.

blamuk 09-03-2007 12:31 AM

sorry where are the M3 skin pics?

Almoxil 09-03-2007 10:02 AM

I'll take the pictures this week. My brother was on vacaction, and I didn't have another camera around to take the pictures. I'll post them probably on wednesday.
