    I have seen several other companies make skins or wraps for the iPhone and I have used sticker boy before and have always been happy for several reasons.

    1. endless options: you can select from a lot of different colors and different textures including wood, metal, carbon, and anti-bacterial matte types.

    2. cuts are precise: I find it easy to install since you just have to line up a couple of the cutouts and the rest just fits.

    3. 4 types of coverage: I find this really useful since I can customize it however I want. I can get different color sides with different color backs.

    4. great install videos online: this makes it easy to install

    I am very happy again with how it turned out. However, I did not realize I ordered SF Giants colors as I am NOT a giants fan. :D So this color combo is really for "Halloween".

    I ordered other colors as well and also for my wife's iPhone 6. I'll try to post pictures as I install them.

    You can find all the types and colors on www. sticker boy . net

    Is there a cut out for the apple logo? I'm asking cos the confirmation email I received from them indicated there isn't even though it was an option when I purchased it.

    I have used ********** on my 5 for 2 yrs and only had to replace the sides once. after I took it off to sell, the phone was pristine and left no residue. highly recommend them and will be using it for my 6 as well.

    I highly recommend this as well. I have always been very happy with the quality. I believe they usually send out 2 sets of sides and I have never used the 2nd set.

    Not sure since I've never purchased slickwraps before. Sticker boy has a good track record with me and my previous purchases. By looking at the other thread, the cuts are very similar. However SB has a lot more variety of colors and types of cuts.

    I decided to switch it up and use my yellow sides instead to give it a livestrong type of theme. Good thing I received 2 sets of sides for each color so I can swap back when I feel like orange.

    Is it compatible with screen protectors? How about cases? In particular, the spigen air skin.

    this works with any screen protector, but the point is to use the skin instead of a case and not use this along with a case.

    It does work with any skin protectors. I did order the screen guard but ended up not using it since I already installed icarez. I might try later on.

    You can install in any order. I had the screen protector on already so the skin came second.

    Like mentioned, this is in lieu of cases. I like my iPhones nearly naked but need something to protect from scratches.

    The anti bacterial sides give it more grip than the phone naked.

    The back is "black stealth". It feels slick, almost like there is nothing on the back.

    Did you have to buy 2 skins to get the black and orange? I did not see an where you could have two different colors.

    Yup, just like Outrigger posted. It is pretty customizable in terms of what you want. You can pick just sides, just back, the full package, etc...

    Remember, if you want the logo border cutout, make sure to ask for it. My wife didn't want it on hers vs I did. Any questions, you can probably contact them or write in their "special instructions" during checkout.

    bought just the sides in silver brushed metal, will go nicely with the blk nappa leather back I have coming.
