Look at lucky labs stuff or any of the others they all use the 3m material so their all pretty similar in look and how they stick, sticker boy is more expensive but has nicer speaker cut outs and home buttons

I've owned Sticker Boy's sidewraps before and they're amazing. Only cause I got a discount :P i was gonna try another company like lucky labs. But i noticed that sticker boy's extreme fit is perfect.

I'd suggest you go to the Anti Bacterial section of the skins. If you want, get the stealth black. Hands down best color for the black iPhone and get the upper/lower (back section) in stealth black as well. It has a matte finish to it.

Try the code "tts2" should last forever. I've been using that code for the past month and half.

Does Sticker Boy give you an Apple logo that matches the top and bottom pieces?

From my experience, Lucky Labs had HORRIBLE fitting top and bottom pieces. They hangover the edge of the phone. And I got gloss black pieces, and the pieces looked like the back of a black CandyShell after you've slid it around on the table for an hour.

When I ordered the Full Body kit in extreme fit. Mine came with one (full piece) then the half piece didn't come with. You could try emailing them before ordering. I'm just waiting on some of their new releases. I know they'll have some new stuff for next month.

Carbon iPhones

I want to recommend http://www.carboniphones.com/collect...e-5-side-wraps

the delivery was literally next day, I'd post pics but I got the glow series, which isnt what you're interested in

I bought Lucky Labs and Carbon iPhones the same day, they both arrived the same day, I actually put the Lucky Labs wrap on 1st, but I found the Carbon wrap so much easier to install

I have tried iPhone 5 skins/wraps from many different vendors, both textured/colorful and clear. Of all of the side wraps I've purchased/researched, Sticker boy is far and away the best as far as cut and fit. Their extreme fit side wrap is almost perfect as far as coverage and alignment and yet it is not very difficult to install. Absolutely no one has realized it is a skin that I am using and not the original design of the phone.

Sticker boy also has a much better fit on the back in my opinion than other iPhone 5 skins I have tried. They are cut slightly smaller than the phone around the edges on the back, which I assume is to allow for better compatibility with cases, but I prefer that to a more full-coverage wrap that extends over the edges of the phone... Also, if you are using a case, you should be aware that side skins in general can affect the fit, especially with very thin cases. I've had no problems with bumpers fitting correctly with side skins.

Here are a couple of pictures of skins I've tried.
The skin in these pictures is the Sticker boy 2-tone back and sides in Slate Jet Black Brushed and Black Stealth (top and bottom pieces in the latter shade). They will include the Apple logo cutout, but you have to ask for it in the "Additional Instructions" part of your order during checkout.

Note: the misalignment of the top and bottom skins in the first picture are due to my crappy install, not the cut of the skin. I improved my technique later on, but that was my first try. In the bottom picture, the top and bottom cut outs are in Black (Antibacterial) Powder Coated and they are paired with the Photive Hybrid bumper.

Wow this looks pretty great. Stickerbou seems a bit pricey though.. I guess the quality speaks for itself.

Sticker Boy is great. Bought side wraps for my black i5, i went with the Slate Jet Black, as it almost has the same color as the phone itself, it also got the blueish tint to it. I got the extreme fit, and boy a did right when i chose that. The cutouts are perfect. A week ago i dropped my phone, and it landed on the upper right corner, the sticker protected it. The sticker get deformed, but the phone stayed flawles, no bump, or scratches. Thank god, when you buy side wraps you get to sets, so i just had to install the second set. Im so glad i bought them. I will get Sticker Boy for the back also.

I loved Lucky Labs for the iPhone 4/4S. But when I upgraded to the iPhone 5. I heard about Sticker Boy. So I went ahead and gave them a try. I saw they had two different versions. I went with the Extreme fit cause on their little diagram it showed that the extreme fit covered the speaker/mic grill perfectly. So when I got it. It was really precise. If you want the same color for the black iPhone 5. get the "Slate Jet Black" since it'll match perfectly with the color of the phone.
If you have the white i5. There's also a version for that.
