    I still need to get some transfer paper to help with aligning it correctly on the back of the iPad. Here is a design I did that I'm gonna cut out in removable vinyl on my wife's Cricut machine here in the next week or so.

    I thought the Cricut only dealt with predefined cartriges and that there was no way to use it with a computer!

    I like that drawing, it's really funny!

    That is what Cricut WANTS! You gotta jailbreak that Cricut!!! =)

    Check out Sure Cuts A Lot software! Allows you to cut ANYTHING on your Cricut without ever having to purchase another cartridge! We have never purchased a cartridge for her cricut besides the ones that came with it.

    here is the site to download/purchase it: LINK

    And check out YouTube to see examples of people using it: LINK

    For just the price of a couple of cartridges... it is WELL worth it! ANY font... ANY picture! That is the only reason we got the Cricut machine was when we noticed what we could do with it with the proper software.

    Wow! I never thought I'd find something that interesting here of all places!
    I'm a cabinet maker and I often have to make stencils and patterns. Usual cutting CNCs are way overpriced. This is the perfect little device.

    Thank you brobar, I really appreciate it!:)

    There could be a good business in clear plastic protectors for the aluminum back with a variety of designs and cartoons. Especially ones that could inexpensively be replaced every few weeks.

    Very Cool!

    I would bet you could make a little money selling custom decals if you wanted to. I would love to have my own one-of-kind decal for my iPad.

    Can't wait to see some pics of the results.

    hehe... if only I had the time!

    There are plenty of people on Etsy who do exactly that though... use their cricuts to cut out decals just like this and them sell them for $10-$20 a pop. I'm sure since they are doing it for revenue that they may be willing to do some custom jobs if you inquired. The cutting is the easy part and the materials cost next to nothing ($3 a yard for the vinyl). The prepping the image is the time-consuming part.
