Not too long ago, I mentioned how I had found the best-looking iPod Shuffle sticker designs made by a company called Shufflesome. Just last week, Alex Schneider of Shufflesome contacted me and today I have two sets of Shufflesome stickers on hand. Gotta love the Internet!
I decided to dress up my iPod Shuffle with the “Barbaloo” sticker set (the one with the “Kill Bill” girl as Alex describes). Placing the stickers was quite easy as the thin but strong vinyl material allowed me to easily remove and re-position the stickers. I noticed that although the Shufflesome stickers wrap around the entire iPod Shuffle, it’s not easy to get rid of the gap between the iPod unit and the cap (as seen in the third photo), so it’s something you have to live with.
As seen in the fifth photo, the iPod’s LED status light is visible through the Shufflesome sticker, however the iPod Shuffle’s serial number on the back will be covered. There are other ways to get the serial number other than peeling the sticker, including the use of iPod Updater 2005-11-01 or later. I took a photo of the “Shufflesomed” iPod together with the iPod Shuffle Armband just for kicks.
On the whole, I love the quality of the print and the beautiful design on my little mp3 player. It looks so good, it looks as if it were printed on the iPod Shuffle itself. Now if Apple could sell U2 iPods, why not specially designed iPod Shuffles?
