Charms and Accessories
Mobile and No-Dust Plugs
Individual and unique, these plugs can add a dash of charm to any phone, laptop and other mobile devices. You can offer them in a variation of shapes, styles and sizes, using materials like Polymer Clay that you can bake with a standard microwave oven (even when outdoors), wood, plastic or resin.

Decals, Stickers and Statements
