Minimal inc. has has started manufacturing totally customizable graphics on iPhone, iPod and Blackberry cases. Uncommon allows you to upload your own graphic (which you can also make cash from if other users use your design) or choose from a case in their existing lines. Their is quite an extensive library of community designs, as well as basics and an artist series to choose from if you want to be a little more common.
If you do chose to customize and upload your own design there is an incredibly simple flash interface to upload your own images, but this is a little limited and does not allow any layering or modification other than resize(down) or rotate. So I guess anything tricky would need to be prepared in Photoshop or similar and then applied lie a procedural map.
