Apple spends a huge amount of time on product design, and while that’s led to the creation of some very iconic devices, not everyone is satisfied with a phone or tablet that looks just like everyone else’s on the block. When it comes to customizing your phone, you could always get a case, but there there’s the added bulk to deal with, and while vinyl skinning can offer a new look while keeping the same sleek profile, they’re not always so durable, and just like a case, change the hand-feel of your phone. If you want to change your phone’s appearance, but nothing else, an anodizing treatment may be the way to go, bringing some new color to your phone’s original metal parts. While that can often be a little expensive, AnoStyle is offering some big discounts this week that might help bring the process a little more into the realm of consideration.
To celebrate the availability of its service internationally, AnoStyle is offering $100 off through Wednesday, or $75 if you order by Friday, for customers using coupon code INTERNATIONAL2013. Regular rates (before this discount) are about $250 for an iPhone 5 and $300 for an iPad mini.
Before jumping on this deal, you should visit the company’s site to understand just what they’ll be doing to your phone, and realize that the dissassembly process to prepare your phone’s parts for anodizing will void your original Apple warranty. That said, 40% off is a pretty nice deal, and some of these color options are really eye-catching, so this might be an offer worth considering.
