$8 Articulate Skin vs. $2K Skin
Recently a few questions have arisen about the differences between the skin I offer for 8 dollars and my custom skins. Specifically, “Why does a custom skin cost up to $2,000 when that other one is so inexpensive?” It’s a valid question that deserves a comprehensive answer
First, keep in mind most of my skins are well below 2K. It all depends on what you ask for.
Some things you get with a custom skin.
No one else will ever be able to buy it. You will be the only person with that skin. Think about the difference between a one-of-a-kind handbuilt car and a Chevy cavalier.
Your skin will look nice. Let’s face it… graphics aint my thing. Oh, I do OK… but we have all seen much better. When you commission a custom skin, I use your graphics. If you don’t have any graphics; I will do my best and you will have a voice. Together we will make it look sharp. It will have the exact look and feel you want. Speaking off that…
Your skin will have your layout. Don’t like this button here? Great, I’ll move it! Want the menu to swoosh in? Sure thing, you’re the Boss. Not so for an $8 skin.
Your skin will be full featured. My current $8 offering (and any future ones) does not have many bells and whistles to it. It is fine for a simple course but not flexible/robust enough for complex course or multiple types of courses. It is usually too much trouble to place all the possible options into one skin. Your skin will get whatever features you ask for.
To Wrap Up: I really have not sold very many of the 8-buck skin (might due to the crappy graphics) and I do not have any immediate plans for any more. I posted the first one as kind of an experiment to gauge interest… turns out.. not many people want to buy a limited featured, ugly skin that anyone else can buy.
