Web Custom Case Appliques
by David, 2 October 2002
geeks love their computers. Admit it, some of us spend way more
time on our custom machines than on our social lives, leaving us
glued to the monitor fragging away at UT2003, swapping files with
friends, or simply surfing away the time. Not only do we customise
the innards of our computers, for maximum power and performance,
there is also a growing trend to personalise each and every system
we own. From custom designed cases to simple windows and blowholes,
each modification to our computers fulfils either a functional or
personalisation on computer cases is the useage of custom stickers,
stuck onto computer cases and windows, much like you find stickers
on modified (read: riced) cars. These stickers are more generally
referred to as appliques, and can be found in the form of well known
logos, such as the Quake3 logo, Unreal logo and so on and so forth.
Shattered Web is one company who specializes in making, marketing
and selling such appliques. Their range is practically limitless,
as they are able to accomodate requests for customised graphics,
while stocking a selection of more popular general graphics.
off, i'd like to thank Terry from The
Shattered Web for sending over a pack of appliques for review.
I received a total of 4 appliques, a 10"x10" chrome spawn
logo, a 7.5"x7.5" Quake3 logo, and a 3.5"x3.5"
Silicon Graphics logo. As a bonus, Terry also threw in his own version
of the 8BallsHardware logo, in black. Neat!
scale, the pictures include a pen, just so you have an idea of how
big the appliques are. I'll only be installing the chrome Spawn
logo as well as the custom 8BallsHardware logo for this review.
My girlfriend took dibs on the SGI logo.
start off by checking out the chrome Spawn logo.
