    For those of you looking to take your Android customization to the next level, you may want to check out Gruver Concepts. They use the latest technology to laser etch custom designs into your phone making it one of a kind. The designs are fantastic looking to boot. Unfortunately, it is limited to only a few models at this time. Models supported as of today:
    • Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GSM/CDMA)
    • Samsung Galaxy SII (AT&T/T-Mobile)
    • Samsung Galaxy SII SkyRocket (AT&T)
    • Epic Touch 4G (Sprint)
    We have contacted them about supporting other models, and they said, "We have plans to support the Samsung Galaxy Note, Motorola Atrix 2, LG Nitro HD. New designs coming too." If you get your handset laser etched we'd love to hear from you.

    so you have to send the phone to Washington state? no thanks. I'll get my kids to draw on a sticker and slap it back there.

    That isn't a requirement with the Galaxy Nexus. They sell a replacement battery cover that is etched with the stock or the owner's design. I couldn't see what HTC products they offered. Their products page seemed intent on sticking with Samsung, no matter how many times I tried to change that. Guess they have a bit of web work to do. Cool looking product, though and not unreasonably priced.

    I think I'm going to order the Nexus battery door. I'll report back when I get it. :)

    This is one of my buddies company - they are getting new stock in of various battery covers in a couple of days. They will have stock on all major android phones including HTC, LG, and others and not just Samnsung. If I remember correctly the Samsung phones are the first to be released with about 5 different designs.

    The cool thing that I liked is that they are only using OEM materials for the battery covers to ensure a perfect fit. They are cool guys just launching their business.

    No, we have the CDMA/LTE standard GNex battery door with that design already etched and ready for sale. No sending required although we're contemplating having a buyback of your old door for a couple bucks off. That's just something we've been thinking about.

    I'm also looking for feedback and what you guys are looking for phone wise and design wise. I know we're all die hard android fans so that's why I started with the multi droids. But working on a bunch more designs. Any feedback would be cool. More designs to come and thank you Droid Forums for your support!

    My friend used to work at a store in the mall that dig engravings, with a diamond tipped machine. And back when I had my flip phone, samsung sch A950, she would do cool engravings on it. So this doesn't seem too special to me since I'm assuming it's the same thing. You can try it on any phone this way.

    Warped, thanks for your feedback. In all honesty not everyone has friends that work in engraving shops and have the ability to try it and see if it works. If it doesn't come out as they had hoped, they've just spent money on something they can't stand, which it isn't the cheapest by the way, as well as having to buy a new replacement back. We've done all the work, all the trial and error, and we know what will produce the best looking product at half of what you would pay trying to do it yourself, besides the time you've spent. We have very high standards about what we produce. If we don't like it, it doesn't go out, period. Again, thanks for your feedback.

    Hey guys,

    As a special thank you to Droid Forums we've decided to give it's members a present. We've dropped the price of the LTE/CDMA GNex Multi Tilt Droid Laser Etched Standard Battery Door to 20$ with free shipping. There's only 10 at that price so head over before they're sold out! Thanks again Droid forums!

    Here's the link
