    guys obviously this isn't just a hobby, this is a person who is a merchant and is sorta pretending to be a random guy that made his own skin by cutting out a vinyl sticker...so I don't think you"ll be seeing any youtube vids anytime soon LOL obviously this is just a ruse to make some money...not that I'm saying there is anything wrong with that...just that it would be better if your more straight forward with your intentions?
    Granted could be ..... BUT a lot of people have transferable skill sets ! And as we all should 'recognize' , time'n materials = $ !

    could you show a picture of how it looks on the bottom. Also, do you have other patterns/designs or just the wood one?

    ouch! I'm actually just a 23 yr old guy that likes to get creative. I have a part time job and do graphic design as well (see signature). this was just one of those things that I decided to create on a rainy day, thought you guys would have liked to see it. anyways, I have to admit you aren't completely wrong, because I might check into what it takes to sell these on shopcrackberry after this response.
    you can also see that I didn't join this forum yesterday....

    thanks again for the interest! you guys have got me motivated

    Why would make such a statement, presented as though there can be no doubt, about a person who has been here since 2009, and (after looking through his posts) has never tried to sell anything except a used Macbook.
    You -may- be right, but to call someone a liar on such flimsy evidence is not cool.

    first off I never said it was wrong what you did or trying to be HARSH as I just called it the way I saw it, all I was saying was that you planned on selling the skin you made, so why not just say that? also I can tell that this wasn't a "bored so I decided to make a skin" because I know what has to be done to make these skin cutouts EXACTLY to the demensions needed right down the the BB logo...no amature can do that kind of professional job! so lets be honest, and even in your post you admitted that I was right in my "intuition" and again I don't think there's anything wrong with making money where you can! it's just the way you posted yourself that rubbed me the wrong way as being deceiving....well thats a bad example but having an alterior motive is the better word? but by all means if you can make some moola then go for it but just be straight forward about it and you will get further but honestly your job is the best I have seen from the other places on fleebay...wish my skin had the BB cutouts! waiting to see what more skin selections you can do!

    never said there was no doubt or he was a liar, I just called it the way I "felt" it..also the OP even said I called it right but read my post above on my views

    I actually was bored and made this skin... because I wanted one. been using illustrator for some time and know how to make clean vector shapes quite easily. I don't know why its so hard to believe. its only been up for grabs since people have shown interest

    He never said you were right about his INTENTIONS. Now that people are expressing an interest, he saw an opportunity.

    You just had to jump in on a guy who has been around here longer than you and make it sound like he had some sort of sinister intention. Other people have posted that they did something for themselves and ended up making some cash on the side helping others (I can think of at least one other poster who did custom paint jobs like colorware). You going to hunt them down and accuse them too?

    To the OP - good job, don't let a bad apple spoil your intentions.

    Also you just cannot cut out all the holes and the logo with bloody scissors you need a special plotter cutter ect ect, so it's a professional job! So ya his intentions were he planned to show off his work in hopes of generating buyers!! And I'm not saying what he did is wrong but not so innocent either, so the rest of you need to calm down! And like I said he did a great job, better than most on fleebay and if he has other patterns I might be interested in buying one myself! sheesh! And if I offended backsidetailsslide it wasn't my intentions
