Personally, I do believe that it is a good idea, though the design of an iPod does not encourage printable "skins" for such a device. I would imagine that they would not only peel off, but possibly parts of the "skin" would stick to the player. The kind of paper that has to go through most inkjet printers to even make it advance is too thick, and a thin "skin" would only be printable on only a few printers, most likely HP brand.

On a side note, the only one I found visually appealing was'The Cure' skin, which blended very well with the iPods look.
