Skins for the community
Pinebook Professionals,

I would like to create my own skin for the PBP but I have no idea how.  I've been reading and watched a couple videos but still have many questions.  Here are a ideas/questions:

* Size -- I see the great pdf's of the lid, bottom, and palmrest.  They are nice but are bigger than any printer I have access to.  Most printers today will to just Letter or A4 and some will also print US legal.  US legal would work.  Or larger and cut to legal size since nobody seems to use legal size anymore.  I've seen some 12"x12" vinyl sheets that could be cut to fit the printer then cut to fit the PBP.  I have access to a color laser that would print the legal size. Any suggestions?

* Vinyl -- I see on this forum that the experts on this group have selected a clear vinyl that they believe will work best on the PBP.  Can someone share the brand and type?  I need to make sure it is laser printable.  Mostly, I just want to start with something good.

* Issues -- Are there any tips or tricks to do this?  I see on this forum that after trying some are begging to give money to the professionals.  I think I could do this, except, these sites seem to have a limited pre-selection of popular laptops.  And many won't do clear background. Does anyone know a popular laptop that is very close in dimension to the PBP?

* Why -- I want to print the logo of a beloved computer I had in my home 30 years ago.  The company is long gone but the logo is in public domain.  If I figure this out I'll post a pic.

Bill
