Skinit.com has been selected as one of Internet Retailer’s Hot 100 e-Retailers for 2012.
The world of mobile phones and tablets are booming and the explosive growth is forecasted to continue. Many experts say that the aftermarket accessories business is more profitable than the actual device manufacturing segment. That is why there are so many new companies entering into this already competitive space. The market is young with ever rapid changes due to the annual cycle of hundreds of models that are produced by the major manufacturers like Apple, HTC, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, LG, RIM, etc. Skinit.com has been selected as one of Internet Retailer’s Hot 100 e-Retailers for 2012. This is the second award the company has received in Q4, as Skinit was recently ranked amid the top honorees in Forbes magazine's annual list of, coming in 25th among America's Most Promising Companies, 100 privately held companies. The complimentary aftermarket accessories business will be the major beneficiary and Skinit.com, based in San Diego, is in prime position to be a market leader. In 2004, Skinit.com first introduced skins as a personalized protective solution for consumer electronic devices. It started with a few designs and a few devices; today Skinit.com supports mass customization and personalization with over 30 million possible combinations of device and design. Each one of Skinit.com’s protective vinyl skin fits perfectly to each device and can be removed with no residue. Skinit.com offers a full device accessory line of cases, covers and screen protectors for additional level of protection those bundles perfectly with their expansive skin business. It is a “Me World” today, that is evident from the proliferation of social networks across all generations. People carry their mobile phones everywhere they go and the device itself has become a reflection of the owner. Because of Skinit.com - style, trends, fashion or personal brand can now be extended on to their mobile phones, tablets or laptops. The days of wearing t-shirts that share personal message is dated as Skinit.com’s products are priced starting at $14.99 so switching skins often is not a huge hit to the pocket book. Skinit.com has successfully taken personalization down to the device and on a one to one level through their Customizer™ tool. Through the Customizer™, consumers can take any image and create custom protective covers that fit perfectly to thousands of devices from mobile phones, laptops, gaming systems, tablets to medical devices. Skinit.com also has one of the largest license and design libraries too. They truly try to offer the full spectrum to their customers from a custom design to NFL™, NBA™, NHL™, MLB™, Hello Kitty™ of Sanrio™, Disney™, DC Comics™, Harry Potter™, Twilight™ and the list goes on and on. “Skinit.com’s Customizer™ and rich catalog of designs truly allows anyone to choose a case, cover or skin that fits their personality – the design options are nearly limitless,” says Lewis Chang, Skinit’s VP of e-Commerce and Marketing. “Our 2012 goal is to continue to offer the most comprehensive products for consumer electronic devices, while increasing our growth and market share as the industry leader in personalization, customization and protection.” Skinit.com is not standing still; they are expanding rapidly to nearly 200 employees and have supply chain and manufacturing facilities globally.
