SkinIt offers KODAK EASYSHARE digital camera customers the ability to personalize their cameras with vinyl skins
(LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2007 CES Sands Expo Booth #70958) - SkinIt Inc., the leading provider of on-demand and custom physical personalization of mobile electronic devices, announces today the availability of vinyl skins for KODAK EASYSHARE digital cameras. Kodak customers can now personalize their digital cameras with vinyl skins reflecting popular brands and designs.
"Our customers' memories are unique, and it makes sense to have the outside of the camera as personalized as the memories inside," said Pierre Schaeffer, Consumer Digital Group Chief Marketing Officer, Kodak. "SkinIt allows our customers to create a personalized look for their digital cameras with easy to apply vinyl designs."
The skins are available for a large selection of KODAK's popular EASYSHARE digital cameras; 28 models in all. Customers can choose from a variety of vinyl skins featuring officially licensed entertainment brands, including professional sports teams like the NFL (new at CES) NBA and MLB, collegiate logos, bands, comics and fashion designs, to name a few. For the utmost in personalization, customers can also use Skinit's photo uploader to skin their digital cameras with recent photos and memories.
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 KODAK EASYSHARE digital camera model. Each SkinIt skin is easy to apply and has a protective element - providing the digital camera with another layer of safety from scratches and other damage. The skin can be easily removed, allowing users to personalize their cameras as often as they choose without damaging the product.
