Check out bicyclemakeover.com. The owner (Ritchie) is on Long Island east of NYC and does these.
I posted the design he did for me here:
Also I wrapped my bike http://forum.slowtwitch.com/...ost=6000620#p6000620
The bike was a work in progress in the pics but you can get the idea.
It is easy to do yourself .... a roller style paper cutter is useful for long straight cuts ... other than than and Xacto knife, razor blade, and nice scissors will do the job.
If you do not like the way it looks just peel the wrap off and put on a new look.

Metro has some plastic smoothing tools (not costly) that are useful too.
3M wraps are good but there are other brands to choose from.

Torhans Bento and added thinwall plastic square tubing (available on Internet at Amazon) with outside measure to match top tube ... Cut tubing longways diagonally with fine blade hacksaw and sand rough edges. Fasten bottom section to top tube with 3M industrial double face adhesive or other adhesive between tubing and bike top tube.
Put in latex/butyl tube and other stuff you want for flat kit ... (some goes in small aero box above BB if it won't fit and you want to preserve a low center of gravity) .... Fasten top section plastic square tube which matches very closely and is a friction fit ..... with 3M consumer vinyl tape .... (Super 33+ with aggressive adhesive) .... wrap tape around bike top tube and square tube cover for security ..... and remember to fold over a small portion of the tape end for easy removal.
The plastic thinwall tubing holds its shape very well for ordinary use but you cannot sit on it for descents without crunching it.
