Each and every package contains the skin(s) based on the customer's selection, a lint-free cleaning cloth, a small but efficient squeegee, and instructions for the application. The skins are pre-cleaned (unnecessary decal pieces are weeded from the camera, flash, button areas) and, where it is available, are pre-masked with transparent transfer tape to assist our customers in positioning the skin with most accuracy and ease.
Stock graphics and customized skin designs are printed on digital vinyls by employing ECO-Solvent technology, and then are laminated with gloss / luster / matte over-laminates to protect the print from scratches and fading. After lamination, the thickness of the application-ready skin is approximately 6 mil (0.006", or 0.17mm), therefore the dimensions of the device will virtually not change. The thickness of cut vinyls, such as matte / gloss solid colours, 3D textured carbon fibers, and chameleon (color-changing) may vary; see "details" of product to ascertain the definite dimensions within the aforesaid categories.
The equipment used for our products (printers, laminators, vinyl cutters) are manufactured in Japan; print materials (vinyls, laminates) are made in the US. Materials, such as the covers and packages, are produced in Canada, and the decals themselves are produced in Canada as well.
To provide our customers with a facile, uncomplicated application process, the vinyls have air channels, meaning in case air bubbles are trapped beneath the vinyl while it is being positioned onto the device, the bubbles can be effortlessly squeezed out without peeling off the skin and reapplying it.
Phone-Skinz provides both in-house artworks and licensed artworks from third party providers and graphic artists.
If a customer wishes not to, or is having difficulties to manage our online skin customizer, he or she may send their artwork via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We accept images in the following formats: .AI, .EPS, .PSD, .PDF, .JPG and .PNG . Granted we are sent AI or EPS files please make sure the texts are outlined, and the images are embedded.
When sending an image, we recommend the image to be in approximately 300DPI resolution, and that bleed is provided to ensure the proper look after die-cutting. Certain images may look great in 100DPI, but the higher the resolution is the better quality we are able to offer. Once the order is placed, we will send the customer a proof of the decal we have generated, and thenceforth a discussion will be open as to what alterations should be made to the skin (sizing or positioning), in case the customer's expectations are not met. When the customer has approved of the design, the decal is finalized and ready to be printed.
Important: Even though we have the right to create and sell the skin designs that are found on our website, we do not have the right to share every artwork digitally. As a result, certain designs are downloadable for personal means, and other designs' digital distribution is legally prohibited. The "Download your free wallpaper" button will appear in the "details" if the selected image can be obtained.
We do not have skins for devices we do not have or had. This means we create the most perfect decal die-cut shapes/lines based on physical products only. We truly think, this is the only way to make high quality products, and the right material combined with high accuracy can only make the most satisfied customers.
