DOWNLOAD THE GELASKINS NZ 2010/2011 PRICELIST

Like a lot of people these days, I love gadgets. I also love design and originality. This is where GelaSkins manifest themselves as my new-found love affair.

GelaSkins are removable vinyl skins for protecting and customizing portable devices. They feature stunning photo-quality graphics ranging from fine art prints to comtemporary urban images designed by a growing family of artists from around the globe.

As well as original artists, the Canadian-based GelaSkins company are collaborating with some of my drop-dead personal favourite illustrators from around the globe (left). Including Dr Grordbort’s, Tragic Toys, BustedTees and Hellboy!

GelaSkins are thin, laminated vinyl decals designed as scratch protection for your tech devices against everyday wear and tear. They feature a removable 3M adhesive that won’t leave any residue behind should you want to remove it.

When I got my shipment of skins and slapped them on my stuff (PSP, MacBook, PSP3 and controllers) the result was simply outstanding. Being the creative person that I am, GelaSkins help my gadgets stand out from the crowd – big time.

The GelaSkins catalogue is extensive and the finished results are absolutely amazing. I’m quite taken with this product and, as a result, am now an Authorised NZ GelaSkin Reseller. I have plans to open an online NZ based store later this year. My fellow trendy kiwis – here are some big saving to be had on shipping costs!

iPad2 as a comic reader

I’ve been putting off the puchase of an iPad due to the simple fact that I thought it lacked a killer app. That’s is to say, there was no real reason for me to have another (oversized) iPhone. I say ‘was’, because a brand new iPad2 has recently been added to my stable of Apple…

Thoughts on 2011

Oh boy, what a year 2010 was. Self-initiated realignments were put into play at the very start of the year, and I’m very pleased to say they’ve all paid off. The NZ economy has been in limbo, to say the very least, for the past 18 months. As such, it’s easy to make big-picture decisions.…
