Formatted abstract
Oh my, how times have changed since Henry Ford offered the Model T in ‘any colour, so long as it’s black.’ Now it is more a case of any colour, full stop, and that’s not just for cars – it is now possible to have the original manufacturer customise your shoes, your t-shirt, your computer or your washing machine. And that’s before you get your own individualising hands on it to ‘modify’ or ‘pimp it up’ even further. The practice of personalising consumer products, whether during the mass production process or afterwards, has become a cultural phenomenon.
