Arty iPod covers
is a new service that allows users to design their own customized iPod cover. "iPods are personal and I liked the idea of a cover being personal, almost like a tattoo that you're not going to swap, in the same way that I wouldn't swap my iPod," said Wrappers owner Freddie Procter. Launched by the Oxford based company Wrappers, Arty makes it possible to have your favourite picture reproduced as a cover. Prices for covers are quoted individually and start from ú32.00 incl P&P worldwide. "The very high density stitching used to reproduce pictures creates a tapestry panel with similar, long lasting qualities to upholstery fabric. The strong but soft finish provides plenty of protection but not at the expense of making gadgets bulky. Arty covers are some of the slimmest cases on the market, adding only a few millimetres to the size of the gadget. "
