What exactly is a Unique Skin?
It is a unique product that takes the place of dull old faceplate's for your electronic devices. They are made of a vinyl with a non permenant adhesive backing that is processionally cut to fit your device. What makes them so unique is that you are able to customize your own device with whatever kind of graphic, text or personal image you desire.
What are Skinz?
Skinz are used to update your old, dull faceplate for any electronic device. Unique Skins allow you to customize every aspect of your skinz, by choosing a design template, uploading your own photos, or uploading your own artowrk and designs. We make it is easy to resize, rotate and change your image in our customizer, giving you maximum control over your skinz. [top]

How do I install my skin?
First wipe the device where the Unique Skin will be placed.
Next, use caution when removing the skin from the backing paper, so
that the thin areas of the skin do not stretch out or rip.
Take your time when applying your skin to the device. A good way to
pick a starting point is by finding a few buttons close together on
your device and start applying the skin there.
Making sure the skin lines up with all the buttons and curves on your device, carefully apply.
