Question Custom Backpanel Paint/Skin

Is there any site that sells custom painted backpanels or skins that sticks on the backpanels? And by custom, i mean either premade ones (but good ones) or letting me choose the design myself by uploading a photo etc.

It would preferably be painted backpanels with good quality car paint grade paint. It should also be able to ship to Turkey.

I'm thinking of matte black panel with a green or blue android logo on it. It would look great on the pebble blue version.

For skins, Decalgirl are very good quality. I've had one on my Kindle for over 18 months, it's used for several hours every day and the skin still looks brand new with no peeling or anything . Well worth going for the matte/satin finish option. Just had a look for you and they do ship to Turkey They also have a reseller programme so might be able to order from somewhere closer to you. The snag is that they haven't got any for the S3 yet.

Edit: they have a "suggest a device" form

Thank you, they do look nice! There seems to be nice designs, but it'd be great if they let us customize the designs to our liking. Also, it's pretty much a given that they'll add the S3 to their collection, considering the popularity of the device.

You could try Plasti-dip spray. Its a rubber spray that is removable, if you want to restore the phone to stock. Not only will it make the phone more grippy, but will also protect it without increasing its thickness.

I think they ship worldwide, or have national websites in a number of countries. You can also get it on eBay. People even spray their cars with it for an instant and removable matt black look!

there is SkinIt

Zagg Personalized Skins

Unique Skins

I'm sure there are more, but I would go with the Zagg ones..
I have had SkinIt's before and there nice but provide no protection, at least with Zagg's you will have protection!
Did someone reply to your post? Does it matter if they're right? No! They volunteered their time to try to help, it's a community, hit the thanks button for them!

Just heard back from Decalgirl who said they would add the S3 to the list of devices to be discussed with their development team. So hopefully they might do them soon enough

Quite possible Though they need to purchase the device before they make skins for it, so...

Are the Zagg ones the same material they use on their normal skins, only printed with design? Because while they are really protective, i can't say i'm much of a fan of the feel.
