Application Instructions

Application Instructions

These tips and instructions can be used for all of our devices. For decals we ship each item with a clear set of instruction - a video for which can be found here:
For our skins the Application process is quite straight forward but requires some patience and attention to detail for the best result. Please read the instructions completely before starting as you only get one go!

  1. Clean your device and hands thoroughly before you start. Avoid using solvents or cleaners on the device, a soft cloth is best, and be sure it’s dry. Work in a well lit, clean and stable space.

  2. Familiarize yourself with the skin pieces and where they go on your device. It is usually best to start with the smallest pieces first if you’re applying an iPad or iPhone skin. Peel from the backing paper slowly, being sure not to stretch or tear the skin, or let the backing touch other surfaces itself.

  3. For MacBook skins, start peeling the skin from the backing paper in the top right corner (Apple logo facing upright). When applying all skins, start by aligning the edges making sure they straight, while fitting the Apple logo cutout over the logo area. Take your time with this.

  4. Once you’re happy with the alignment of your skin, press the skin to your device. If a crease or small air bubbles form, don’t worry, the channeled Mactac vinyl adhesive allows for creases and bubble to be pressed and smoothed away.
