CreditCovers let you personalize your credit card

For consumers that are tired of the design that comes standard on the front of their credit card or debit card, a new product allows them to jazz up their plastic. CreditCovers are decorative skins for credit cards (or any other kind of plastic card of similar dimensions) that feature a number of unique designs.
Consumers can choose from a number of unusual and fun designs, with names like Money in the Bank, Ohmigawd! and Louis the XIV giving you an idea of the playful selections.
The CreditCover skin is simply peeled off its backing, lined up and stuck onto the front of your credit card. While your credit card number and important information remain visible, the rest of the card front will be covered by the design you have chosen.
According to the company's website, CreditCovers will not damage your credit card, and can be removed easily. Placing a CreditCover onto your plastic should not prevent it from being swiped through credit card readers or used in an ATM machine.
Additionally, CreditCovers should last for a long time. If yours does wear out, the company promises to replace it for free.
