Every year Christmas seems to arrive more quickly than it did the year before. And every year I wonder, “what I should get for my husband?” If I tried to give him socks, he’d likely throw them back at me (I haven’t tried this yet…but I don’t want to risk it). Clothes that he might need – also not considered to be ‘gift worthy.’ He loves to watch DVDs but he often forgets about Christmas and buys the movie himself so that’s not an option. This year I have the solution: a personalised laptop skin!
I’ve teamed up with CaseApp this year to give Phil a gift that he wouldn’t think of getting himself.
Tristan and Kallista thought that Phil should have a laptop skin for all of the hard work he has done this year as we are all very proud of him. Skins are available for laptops, Macbooks, iPads, and some phones. For the purpose of this review, Phil received his Christmas gift early and had a hand in creating his own skin.
The CaseApp website is easy to use, and you can save your project (or several versions of it if you want to try out different looks) to come back to later if you can’t complete it all at once. This is a good feature for us Moms.
The hardest part about the whole process is deciding on which photos to use! To help narrow it down, we made a collage of 12 photos. One tip is that you will need high resolution photos for your creation. CaseApp will let you know if the resolution isn’t high enough.
There’s still plenty of time to relax and create your own designs in time for Christmas as the delivery time was swift. (Don’t forget to use the discount code below)
There aren’t any instructions for applying the skin, but it’s very easy: Just peel it off the backing paper and apply it to a clean laptop cover. If it’s not quite straight, that’s OK because you can lift it up and reapply it without trouble as we’ve found out.
Phil has had his laptop skin for almost a month now (CaseApp have been very patient with me sharing our review, but I wanted to make sure it was well used first). The skin is still in beautiful condition after being moved about the house and put in and out of a case to go to work. It hasn’t lifted up or been scratched.
We’re all very happy with the new PC laptop skin, and I think it adds individualism to an otherwise ‘boring’ plain cover. The photos are a conversation point at work for Phil and he can reminisce about the memories made with each photo.
At home when Phil isn’t using his laptop, it can sit on his stand and become a piece of art like a photo frame instead of just another piece of electronic equipment gathering dust.
The only drawback I’ve found so far is that the PC laptop skins are only available in one size at the moment, 15.6 inches. I’m hoping that they will expand their PC laptop skin range as they have their Macbook and iPad skins.
CaseApp also has a wide range of cell phone/mobile phone cases that are composed of two layers; a hard shell that you’ve designed over a silicon lining that will protect your phone if handled roughly (you know…like those kids like to handle our phones and say, “I’ll be careful, Mom”). You can choose a design by CaseApp or you can create your own design.
