The TI-84 Plus Silver Edition can be personalized by colorful interchangeable faceplates and slide cases.
In 2009 Texas Instruments sold on its Education Technology Store faceplates in 15 different colors: Black, brown, dark red, red, pink, purple, dark blue, blue, light blue, green, gold, orange, bright orange, grey and white. Except bright orange were matching slide cases available, too. The pink faceplate was only sold in a combo as a limited time offer for $10.99, the black silde case was listed "currently unavailable" (as of 3/3/2009.)

The TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition and TI-83 Plus.fr graphing calculators introduced in 2013 are compatible with these faceplates.

A different approach of customization was developed with the GraphiTI stickers available exclusively for the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handhelds, TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus and TI-89 Titanium graphing calculators. Adhesive, easy-to-print overlay stickers are available on the Texas Instruments Education Technology Store for $1.99 (10-pack as of 3/3/2009) and free software allows to download photos and clip art, add colors and stamps, or use pen and paint tools to create unique artwork.

The success of the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition convinced even third-party manufacturers to sell their own "Designer Faceplate & Holster" products.
