SALT LAKE CITY, Nov 19, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ZAGG Inc. (NASDAQ: ZAGG), a leading producer of electronics accessories for protecting and enhancing the mobile experience, including the popular invisibleSHIELD(TM) and ZAGGaudio(TM) brands, announces a new patent-pending method for personalizing and protecting consumer electronics. ZAGGskins(TM) combine customizable, high-resolution images combined with the scratch protection of ZAGG's invisibleSHIELD, and are available to ship worldwide beginning tomorrow, November 20, 2009.
To create a ZAGGskin, customers select from a library of designs or upload their own high-resolution personal photos or images. The printed image, custom-designed for their device, is then merged with the exclusive, ultra-tough, patented invisibleSHIELD film, which allows customers to both protect and individualize their gadgets with a single product.
"People connect with their gadgets on such a personal level that customizing the appearance is almost second nature," said Brian Packer, VP of Marketing of ZAGG. "ZAGGskins allow you to choose the outer appearance of the device, plus it adds the amazing scratch-proof benefit of the invisibleSHIELD. It is the perfect combination of style and substance, making it unique in the marketplace."
ZAGGskins will be available online at www.ZAGGskins.com beginning November 20, 2009.
"We are dedicated to protecting and enhancing the mobile experience at ZAGG, and ZAGGskins are a perfect fit for that philosophy," said Robert G. Pedersen II, President and CEO of ZAGG. "Not only will our tech-savvy customer base love the ZAGGskins, but we believe the personalization options will attract many new customers from outside of our traditional demographics. This product line will be an integral part of reaching ZAGG's overall goals and will revolutionize our industry."
