I like skins for my devices but I much prefer clear ones as I don’t really like to cover my device, I like to see it. For example I have the HTC One and it’s a nice looking phone so it would be a shame to cover it with a skin I think, but a case works as it comes off, a skin is more permanent but it does offer an extra level of protection which is a good thing in itself. Slickwraps has a solution which is a case and it’s a skin, or sort of anyway. The Case is a case but the skins are interchangeable so you can pick and choose and change them whenever you want. They’re offering 90 different colors and styles so I’m sure there’s one for everyone.
Having seen great success with its protective skins, Slickwraps has now taken one step further into the accessories market, expanding their line to include protective, customizable cases.
The idea behind the case is to allow consumers the ability to customize the look of their device with skins, while providing the durable protection of a hard card. The Case features a recessed back, allowing customers to easily interchange the style and color of their case with removable inserts. In addition to the case and back insert, most styles will also include a front wrap and sidepieces to completely customize the iPhone 5. The Case itself has a one-millimeter front lip for screen protection, as well as textured rubber sides to enhance grip.
“For years we’ve always had a split down the middle, half of our customers wanting skins and the other half wanting cases,” said Fred Sanchez, Slickwraps Co-Owner. “We decided to finally make a product that caters to both.”
Not only has the case allowed Slickwraps to expand into a new niche market, but it has also given the company the chance to expand the types of styles and designs they offer their consumers. Along with their popular vinyl Wood, Color, Brushed Metal, Glow-in-the-Dark and Camo Series’, the company is also introducing natural materials into their line. The Natural Series will include real wood, leather and cork.
Slickwraps has worked to remain close to its roots with the Case, continuing to handcraft and assemble all of its products in the United States. The company is excited to see how well their consumers take to the case, and plans to expand the line in the future, introducing new designs and styles.
