iStyles5/Sticker is too slick to start with. Then its not a wrap like im used to with phones its literally just a darn sticker. Mine was a bit smaller than the one in the picture so it didnt even go to the curves at the edge of the back cover. Im sure they will tell me it was an application error. It was not! I have put skins on all my phones for the last 5 years. No refunds for used products so order at your own risk!c. hirner, United States, 2 June 2018
We're sorry to hear that the Amazon Kindle Skin was not to your expectation. There are two types of vinyls that these Skins can be made from:
1) Conformed vinyl - this vinyl can be made into the "wrap" that you've described where the coverage can be extended to cover rounded surfaces at corners as it sticks so strongly. Such vinyl is used to make car decals where strong adhesion is necessary but when used to make a device "wrap", Skin application will be complicated as it requires a heat source to bend and stick, and the aggressive adhesive can damage the device surface when the Skin is peeled off, or at the least, leave a fair amount of adhesive residue on the device.
2) Non-conformed vinyl - this is the vinyl we use for our Skins as it has a balanced adhesive that allows for easy application (can be repositioning multiple times during application), will stick well (outlasting the lifespan of the device), and more importantly, will not damage the device surface when the Skin is removed. You do not need a heat gun for the Skin application either but the disadvantage is that this material only bends around a single axle in 3D and the Skin cannot be extended to cover rounded surfaces, such as those at the corners on the back of the Amazon Kindle.
The Matte finish is a non-glossy, satin-type finish that give Skins an arty look and feel (art pieces, professional photos, canvases are usually matte). It is fingerprint and smudge resistant, and looks gorgeous with most designs.
The Gloss finish is a shiny finish that gives Skins an expensive, classy and sophisticated look (like a really shiny car). Designs look more vibrant with a gloss finish.
