With so many case windows, you'll need something to
to perk it up. In comes the instant etch appliques. We
came into contact with our very own more than a year
ago. Recently, I had the chance to check out some samples
Web. They provide pre-made etch appliques, as well as
We got a couple of samples of the ones
SW already had pre-made. I picked out a Batman logo, they also
sent over some Bicardi bat samples too. Sorry to say, I messed
up all but one of the Bacardi Bat appliques. I did manage to
save one of the smaller 3.5" versions though. SW has two
sizes available, a 7.5" and 3.5". They also carry
larger 10" non window appliques that you can apply to the side
of y our case. Several different colors are available, along
with custom designs.
These samples are going on our Zeus
Case we reviewed a while back. I thought it'll be a cool
change to put these on an oval window instead of the normal square
shapes. Let's start...
First off, peel off the thin sided
sheet. This should pick up the applique on the underside.
Prepare the window area by wiping it
down with a bit of soap and water. Make sure it is totally dry
before proceeding. Pick a spot where you want to put the
applique. I chose the middle, pretty wise choice I think.
Use the included plastic card, or get
one of your credit cards so you can smooth out any bumps or air
pockets. You may develop a few smaller pockets of air, but
they should disappear after a few days according to SW.
Peel off the remaining sheet of paper
and the applique should be left behind. Let's see what we can
do with this:
First picture is with a green CCFL while
the second Bacardi design is lit with a white CCFL. Somehow we
ended up doing a Bat theme, but the above look a lot better in person.
The appliques are simple to use, although I
did mess up my first time. To get these applied with the best
result, work in a clean dustless room. That'll prevent dust from
causing bubbles. It also pays to have steady hands to apply the
