GLOBAL WIRELESS ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES NEW FOX ENTERTAINMENT VINYL SKINS FOR SKINIT.COM
(SAN DIEGO – August 3, 2006) - SkinIt.com, a leading provider of on-demand and custom physical personalization of mobile devices, is now offering the largest collection of Fox Entertainment vinyl skins featuring FOX's animated hit series, THE SIMPSONS, on more than 500 consumer electronic devices. These include mobile phones, iPods, laptops, PDAs and gaming devices.
The announcement comes today from Global Wireless Entertainment (GWE), the world leader in the exclusive management of brands and celebrities in mobile media. The FOX skins will be available in eleven various designs featuring members of the popular family and their friends. The cost of each FOX skin ranges from $12.95 to $29.95 depending on the device, and can be purchased directly at www.SkinIt.com. The skins are shipped worldwide direct to the consumer and usually arrive within ten business days.
"Working with SkinIt is a great opportunity to bring FOX's most popular animated characters to fans around the world, and we are excited to see The Simpsons displayed on mobile devices across the globe," says Elie Dekel, Executive Vice President of Fox Licensing. "Personalizing the exterior of mobile devices is one of the most contemporary and innovative ways for our loyal viewers to show their support for their favorite animated shows."
The skin itself is made from a professional-grade vinyl, which is printed via a proprietary process that ensures detailed and premium images. The skin is then coated with a glossy finish and custom cut, which creates a perfect fit for each device. Each SkinIt skin is easy to apply; will not void a device warranty and has a protective element - providing devices another layer of safety from scratches and other damage. The skin can be easily removed, allowing users to personalize their devices as often as they choose without damaging the device.
"We are very excited to welcome FOX to our expansive brand family," says Paul Buss, GWE chief executive officer. "THE SIMPSONS is one of the most popular animated sitcoms of all-time, and the vinyl skins featuring the family will no doubt be very popular."
