How To Customize Your Notebook

Have you ever wanted to customize the looks of your notebook? I was so impressed with this modification that I wanted to share it with everyone. This was done by Dell Community Member odonnelr on his Inspiron 600m and it looks fantastic. I have also included his instructions on how he did it in case you want to do something similar. Awesome job!

  1. I bought the sticker at QuickStickers. They offer 110 different customizable flame designs, plus hundreds of other customizable stickers. You pick the pattern from their huge list, and then choose a color and practically any size, to your exact specifications. I set the width to 11.3 inches. I believe the height for this shape worked out to about 7.8 inches. These are die-cut, vinyl stickers, so they really look more like paint once they're applied. They are glossy and very thin. Prices are very reasonable - this one ran me about $12 plus shipping. It arrived in less than a week.
  2. Mask over the logo with masking tape. I found it easiest to way overshoot, then trim the edges with an exacto knife. If you are gentle, the knife follows easily in the groove along the edge of the logo without damaging the surface.
  3. Apply the sticker as in the instructions included with the sticker. Apply it right over the masked logo.
  4. Trim around the edge of the logo again, this time cutting through the sticker. This is probably the hardest part, but take your time or your lines will not be clean.
  5. Remove the masking tape, along with the parts of the sticker stuck to it.

Ta-da! You're done! Let me know about YOUR custom job and I will post it here for all to admire!
