Figure 2: The front of the Zune decal – notice how there's extra space in the bottom left area near the control pad.
The quality is the decals themselves is impressive – the colours are rich, the level of detail in the print is impressive, and the material the decals of made of feels durable. My only real complaint is that applying the decal on the front of the Zune was frustrating because no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get it to line up properly. Either I stretched it slightly by pulling it off and re-applying it several times, or it wasn't cut quite right. Regardless, it didn't look quite right on the front of the Zune – close, but not quite perfect. The back was easy to apply and looked excellent – no problems at all.

Overall, I think Decalgirl decals are a fast, easy, and affordable way to make your Zune look different from anyone else's. They also offer an option to create a customized decal based on a graphic you submit, so if you want to have a truly unique Zune you can go that route.
