    I was going to get a slickwrap, but even though they say IN STOCK on their website, apparently they aren't really and they won't be shipping them til after they receive phones. UGH!

    I want my skin by the 16th so I can put it on my phone as soon as I get it!

    Any other companies out there that make skins (I'm looking for clear) that will be shipped and received before the 16th?

    I've been looking..specifically for clear matte. Most I've seen are preorder only.

    might have to get a cheap case to throw on it until I can get the skin....

    I'm not sure you'll find any on or before launch day. Most companies I've contacted said they like to test their skins on the actual device first before they ship out.

    They won't ship after they get the phone? lol, damn it I ordered the gloss version for my jet black. Oh well, I hate cases so I guess I have to wait. Where did you see that they were shipping after the 16th?

    I messaged them on facebook. I saw the "In Stock" on their site and new they aren't always super fast on shipping.... so wanted to make sure I would have it before Friday.... Nope!

    Was told they weren't making them til they got their phone. It really is bait and switch (or false advertising) to say In Stock, when they aren't shipping til AT LEAST Friday (and with their record... probably not until next week!)

    I just like the fit of their skins... all the precise cut outs. All the others have just one big hole for the speakers... they have an individual circle for each!

    I've had hot pink carbon fiber and black w/white polka dots. I've ALWAYS gotten a ton of compliments! (And I always make sure tell people where I got it from!)

    Well, I agree with the false advertising. That being said, I like the idea that their cuts are precise though, I dont mind waiting if its going to be done right :)

    Ya.... I gave in and ordered... I also ordered a temporary screen protector (although if I like it, I may just leave it on!) And I'll figure out what to do about the back... either buy a cheap clear case or *GASP* leave the factory plastic on the back until my skin get here!

    I've never looked at them before. I see they have the cut outs like I like.... but I don't see a clear skin... unless I'm missing it.

    So the person who messaged me on FB from Slickwraps was apparently wrong.... I got a tracking number today and it shoes the package picked up! So I would think I'll get it Friday!!!! (I hope it fits as good as my last ones!!!!!)

    I got my tracking number today too. I order the naked gloss for my iPhone 7 JB Plus. Are these easy to install? Ive never bought skins from them.

    Did you get your clickwrap yet? I'm getting a little pissed! First Class Mail, according to USPS' site is supposed to take 1-3 days... these were supposedly accepted at USPS on the 13th, so it's now been 4 shipping days. My tracking shows NOTHING except accepted.

    I'm beginning to wonder if they haven't been put into the system (i.e. mailed) at all yet! I know they've never been the fastest with getting stuff shipped (has been a complaint i've read on the FB for a couple years now). But i assumed once it was actually "mailed" we'd get it quickly, or at least within USPS time frame.

    Ugh!

    I'm in the same boat as you. I emailed them and they haven't responded.

    Nothing here either. Apparently they got our tracking numbers and everything ready but they are going to ship our skins until they receive their phones.

    Whats the best Clear Glossy Skin for a JB 7+?

    seems DBrand doesn't have any clear glossy ... and haven't heard anything about PhantomSkinz or Skinomi

    I'm looking at the slickwraps naked gloss right now but there aren't any pictures of it. Their website looks like it's just a stock photo of the JB phone.

    What is odd, though: The USPS site is showing a pick up????? Normally, when companies get the packaging ready and send a tracking number you'll get a message on the USPS (or UPS or FedEx) site that says they haven't received the package yet. So how did Slickwraps get them to say these were already accepted into the USPS system?????

    Odd.....

    We used to use PhantomSkinz before I found Slickwraps. PhantomSkinz are nice (and their customer service is way better then Slickwraps, because you'll actually get an answer!) However, I switched because I liked the individual cutouts the SW had whereas PS only had one large cutout for all the little speaker circles. And SW's corners are completely covered... the last time we got PS there was the color of the phone showing through. Now on a clear you won't see it as much, but when I had hot pink it was important to me that my corners be completely covered!

    I just wish SW was better at getting stuff sent out in a timely manner... seems like that's what most of the customer posts are about on SW's facebook page... That and getting their emails answered....

    I don't have any history with Skinomi (and I think my ipad mini clear skin is TechArmor.... Now that one is nice and my corners are completely covered and flush but it's one cutout our for the mini's speaker holes.... can't see it as much with a clear skin, though!)

    Yeah, they definitely need to improve their customer service. I hope their product is good. My first time buying from them.

    I ordered today on bestskinsever website for my iPhone 7+ JetBlack.
    I choose simple body glossy protection. It looks very beautiful and thin.

    As I live in France, i'll have it in 5/10 days. If you want I'll post some pictures here
