I wanted to make a fun and affordable iPhone skin. I've been noticing that there are a lot of products that have packaging with great graphics. This is a way to extend the life of the artwork on those boxes. 

These iPhone skins feature logos, images, and patterns from both mainstream and more obscure product packages. They could range from candy, and soft drinks, to office supplies, and games. They will be cut from actual boxes and will have a removable adhesive already applied. There is plenty of clearance for the camera port and flash. Each pack will include a random assortment of 3 iPhone skins designed for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.  Packs for the iPhone 5 are also available.

There are several pieces of equipment and materials required to manufacture these iPhone skins. The prototypes pictured were cut with an X-Acto knife. The sharper, more precise way to cut these iPhone skins is by using a customized press plate that stamps each piece out. This will provide for a cleaner more consistent product. Seam sealers, paper cutters, and blades will also play key parts.

As I was developing this project I noticed that there may be a way to make this product using 100% mechanical processes. No electricity is required to manufacture these products because each machine is manually operated.

This product is 100% recyclable. From the iPhone skins themselves, to the packaging, and shipping envelopes.

Please note that the video is silent. For fun, start iTunes, hit shuffle, then press play.

These iPhone skins are meant for aesthetic purposes only. Although they may prevent scratches(or cover up existing scratches), they do not protect from damage due to drops. All boxes are clean and do not come in contact with food, chemicals, etc. I have not applied any protective coating so that they can be recycled.  These iPhone skins are produced independently from the brands owners.
