    Nothing mind blowing, just a little fun. Figured she would like it better than plain old black.

    Sorry if the pic isn't great, from a cell phone.

    Have a great holiday everyone!

    Just used the OraJet 3165 that I have on hand. Not sure what would actually be the best for this application?

    Most likely 3551 i'm thinking or a wrap material.

    I have just started in the digital printing market and have 3651 and was wondering what you used to see if i could try that on my laptop. I think 3165 is a tad thinner so it should work I'd guess.

    That's sweet! I've done my own laptop wrapping. I went a little overboard on this one, too :) 3552c with a lam on it. All on an MSI Wind U100. I'll share my cut files if anyone wants. Merry X-Mas everyone!

    When I saw the term "lappy" in your title, it reminded me I haven't watched any of Strongbad's emails on homestarrunner.com in way too long. Just viewed half a dozen of them and his "crappy lappy". If ya go to the site, select sbemail from the tiny text at bottom of screen. Hilarious. Thanks for the reminder.

    Of my laptop, I took a few pictures of each surface, perspective corrected them, matched them to their dimensions in CorelDraw and put together the vector cut lines. I did one test cut and had to move a couple things around. The second cut was spot on. I'm not entirely happy with the corners as I only have the 3552C and had it laminated. So, it bunched up pretty good around the edges. I was able to minimize that bunching with a hair dryer :)
