what dimensions did you use for the skin considering the edges of the mini 9 curve a little bit?

I don't know about the above company but at skinit.com I just selected the mini 9 section. I will see how well it covers it though. I ordered mine with a black background since my mini is also black.

WarMachine I'm thinking about getting a skin from skin-it too. I love the skin you made and am looking forward to your impressions when it arrives. I like the DNA image best, but the one with the films is great too. I've also got a great image of Cogs that would be perfect. Or I may scan something from Seed magazine. They've got quite a few interesting graphics wedged in their issues. So many choices

I heard that. My skinit is suppose to be shipping soon. It takes a couple of business days to get through there process to print (or so they say). But its been 2 or 3 business days so I should expect an email by tomorrow morning saying it shipped. Then another couple of days after that obviously. I will post pictures!

FWIW, if you have a sign shop nearby that does truck signs, they almost always have their own laser vinyl cutter. I've had all sorts of vinyl decals (essentially a skin) made up with images of my website or blog super cheap compared to some of these sites online. $30 + $7 shipping is ridiculous for a vinyl skin that small. My local place can convert a photo into a vinyl decal, so any shop like that should be able to. Check your yellow pages for "truck signs". and make a call.
