Wait, did you put the front sticker right over the glas.t? I was going to get a fullbody, but already had the Pure on the front, so I did not want to remove it. What does the skin look like on the Pure?

I asked about that. It's a simple message to give it a heat treatment if an area lifted. Can be from a weak heat job in one area, dropping your phone, pulling it out of you tight jeans or sleeve. They explained if you give it a nice clean with alcohol and good install, it is highly unlikely to lift.

The meaning of a good install = #1 heat the edge #2 then press while the film is soft. This gives a nice seal along the edge. Do not press and try to fold with your fingernail and then heat. It's been 7 days since the install. I made sure to give it a few extra rounds of heat on corners and both sides. No lift. I left it in my car last week for hours in freezing temp while shoveling 10" of snow, no lift.

I've been holding off on installing the front skin. Since I've been using a tempered glass screen protector. But I figured. If i wanted the ultimate combo/protection for a naked iPhone why not cover the front as well and make it different. So i just lined up the camera/earpiece grill and went from there. The sides are perfectly straight and pretty happy with the install.

I might buy an all Red skin from them soon. So i'd have a Red iPhone 5 and I can use my Twelve South Surfacepad with it as well

I decided to put on the Orange Home Button Sticker from SGP. Was inspired from that video someone posted on the first page.

I think it's better to put on the button because it'll feel really weird without it.

2. Won't the liquid from the wet install damage the phone if it gets in? That one hole to the right of the camera looks really vulnerable.
I still hope someone can answer this.

Before you finalize your purchase through paypal. There will be a little bar where you can enter the code. It's the final step i believe.

Don't do a wet install unless you're using the clear film from sticker boy. The clear skin is a different material so it's better to do a wet install.

The rest of their skins on the other hand is made to be installed dry.

I think it's better to use water and a tiny drop of hand soap

Thanks! Ordered sides and upper and lower back skins, with a matte mid back. The code still works, I'm surprised it hasn't expired yet.

Just a quickie suggestion... avoid the CF skins. Seems that since they're a bit more rigid (read thicker) they don't really want to conform as nicely as the vinyl skins even after thoroughly heated with a blow dryer.

Granted, in my Sector 5 it's fine since as the case itself pretty much pins the skin into place but yeah... the instant I take my phone out of the case they flare out, no matter how much heating :\

Going to order some basic black vinyl skins soon.

That's a shame to hear. I personally haven't tried nor like CF skins at all. But so far the basic black/smooth skin and anti bacterial red is amazing. It's sticking pretty well. Only heated once and haven't had any issues of lifting.

I'm currently rocking it with the Surfacepad. It's a great combo. Let me know if you're interested in photos.

I ordered the clear matte skin for the iPhone 5 from **********. I have to say I'm happy with it, although it's not a perfect fit, there's still a bit of a gap, but I would say it's quite good. I really like the way the iPhone looks now, and I agree it's the thinnest case one can get. Since it's not perfectly fit, there is dirt accumulating in the place the sticker meets the phone which is not nice.

Also the clear skin doesn't add protection to the chamfered edges.

Here's the Sticker Boy Red Anti Bacterial Matched with the Twelve South Surfacepad in Red. Now the Red of the Twelve South is just a tad bit darker than the Sticker boy Skins.

Sorry for the quality. Took pics with the iPad 3

Alrighty, I have my skins installed. Stealth black for upper and lower back, red for sides (no chamfered protection) and matte mid back. Considered off topic since I didn't get the chamfered protection, but just thought I'd chime in.

P.S. Does anyone else with a matte skin know if I can peel it off and reapply it? I know for a fact that its sticky as hell, and I'm afraid I might stretch it to the point that its unusuable. And I know I can definitely do a better job if I reapply it.

Hi, my 1st post on here, thought i'd give my opinion after getting these

i had a matte skin on the back and sides of my iphone. i dropped my phone and marked the side. I seen they were bringing out sides and thought perfect it would cover the mark. So i ordered a 2 tone kit, black for the top and bottom and slate jet black brushed for the middle.

As mentioned earlier in the thread the slate skin is thicker and harder to mould round the edges. So i ordered black side skins for my phone, they are thinner and easier to apply but, i am still getting wee bit round the phone where its starting to come up. Slightly disappointed as its a great idea and offers a little protection for someone who doesnt want a case.

For me. None yet. I think my buddy just got his in the mail yesterday. I'm gonna head over there and install it for him. So far for mine. It's flawless. No lifting what so ever. Just heat it nicely and wrap it while it's warm.

Any suggestion on which of their skin color better approximate the stock grey(and white) and black(slate) of the original iphone 5's aluminum?

I know they have clear but they are not available in the extreme cut or chamfer versions.
