    Slick Wraps Wood skins for iphone 4

    In the market for a iphone 4 skin? Well no matter what version of the apple iphone you have or many other devices slick wraps has you covered. This review is of the slick wraps wood line of iphone 4 skins. There are lots of companies out there that make vynil skins for your iphone 4 but slick wraps isnt your normal ebay seller. The packaging for the slick wraps is simple, a card with the slick wraps logo and which design you are receving wrapped in a tight for fitted plastic bag.

    PROTECTION
    The wood kit that i am reviewing comes with the back skin along with the front skin, some other companies make the front skin two peices where slick wraps makes it one comtinoues peice which i like the look of better, As for the protection that the kit gives you, it is pretty minimal. I personally think that skins are the easiest way to personalize your phone or device.the skins will protect your phone from small drops and prevent scratches from hapenning on the glass.

    QUALITY
    The skins from slick wraps are of very high quality, they are made of 3m dinoc vynil whick is the best material i have seen for skin use on iphones. they do not leave residue behind when you peel them up and they are reusable, i have peeled mine up and reapplied atleast 6 times and it has worked pretty good. I have also dropped my phone one time from over 8 feet with a bumper on and the slick wrap skin protected the screen enough to keep from shattering, just a small hardly noticable mark on the wrap.

    Overall the slick wraps wood serious is pretty nice, easy to apply and looks great. i did not experience any flash issues although the cut out is very small and if not installed perfectly you will see some washout from the flash. Most cases will work with the front and back installed if they are bumper style cases. Slick wraps always has deals running on there website so check it out from time to time for a great deal. slick wraps site. you can save 20% by putting this promo code in the promo area or check out, SAVE20.

    Slick Wraps Board Series Skin

    Slick Wraps Board Series For the iPhone 4

    Back at you with another review of a Slick Wraps product this time its the Board Series full body skin. This is one of the most unique skins I have seen and by far one of the most impressive fitting skins I have reviewed. As a Skateboarder I think this case closely resembles a skate board and even feels like a read board, the back skin is a cut piece of grip tape to fit the back glass perfectly, the from and sides are a wood texture that is a light color and has a great feel. The package comes with the full body skin and a sticker from slick wraps, it also comes with a application card.

    PROTECTION
    This skin is slightly different then most iPhone 4 full body skins. The back grip tape skin is much thicker then the average carbon or vinyl skin it is more like the thickness of the wrap sol or zagg protection kit. The sides and from wraps are a little bit thicker than vinyl skins but help with death grip and will protect from scratched and minor drops. With the thicker back skin on you will not be able to fit many bumper style cases on so you will have to just use the skin by itself which is fine with me because that is what it is designed for.

    FUNCTIONALITY
    This skin can cause some small functionality problems, the grip tape back skin is pretty ruff, if you have never touched grip tape before its like sandpaper, this will catch while sliding into pockets and removing out of pockets. The material will grab some lint and loose material but is easily removed. The back skin will not leave any residue just like the rest of the wrap is residue free. All ports and covers are easily accessible and you wont have problems with those. The back skin being so thick and rigid I would no recommend using any cases with this skin set, it would take away from the whole board theme anyway.

    DESIGN
    The design of the skin is what impressed me the most. I have tested a few skin sets before and usually in the ones I have tested the antenna wrap is in three or more pieces which makes it harder to install and leave a lot of corners to catch in you pockets. Slick Wraps uses two pieces which makes installation easy and gives it a more complete design. The front skin was the same way, I have never used on because I didn't like two piece design on the front but once again slick wraps uses a one piece design which is very easy to install and give the theme a very complete look( I know other companies cut there wraps the same way I just haven't reviewed any yet). I even installed the front piece over my screen shield and it worked fine.The back skin is pretty thick so it will protect you phone better from drops and such, it has a nice camera cutout that will not interfere with pictures and a apple logo cutout.

    Overall this full body Board Series wrap from Slick Wraps is nice. The every day business man probably will not like it but if your a parent with kids who skate board or a die hard skateboarder this wrap is for you. Slick Wraps also makes wraps for a world of other devices from cell phones to ps3, stop by the site and check it out slickwraps.com . you can get 20% off by entering SAVE20 in the promo area of the check out so stop by and pick some up they are a great deal for the price.

    Thanks for taking the time to make this review

    I think lucky labs hit a home run with back skins for the simple fact it has 2 cutouts for the camera. Blends much better than oval cutout IMO

    just received my wooden back skin, and just ordered another one :D
    I would recommend slickwraps to anyone, good quality, fast shipment (one week to Europe) and good customer service.
