PolyGFX is a company that designs what they call skins for cases, laptops, mouse pads, XBOX, even home appliances. These skins are a printed on a vinyl just like the ones used on fancy buses. On one side there is an adhesive and on the other side is the design. PolyGFX has over 100 designs however if you cant find something you like they also do custom designs. You would think that for a custom design to be printed you would have to pay a good amount more right? Wrong, the price of a custom skin is the same as a normal skin. All you have to do is send them the files for your skin and they print it out for you. PolyGFX was more than kind to take the time to design and send a CaseSkin just for OCModShop!
The CaseSkin came packaged in a long box and within the box are the contents which are in a plastic bag. The case skin itself is rolled up on a cardboard tube to keep it from being damaged or unpeeling from the backing. Also included are instructions on how to apply the skin as well as a blue applicator which is optional with this new EZ-Apply material. Not only are instructions included and available on their site but you can also download many videos in Windows Media Player and QuickTime format. Click here to go to their help videos section
I will be using this OCModShop skin on a Panther case which is a pretty big full tower. In the picture on the left you can see that the case is quite dirty. It is important to thoroughly clean the case so that the skin can adhere as much as possible. Yes I know I don’t have that 5.25 drive bay covered, I need to get something to put in it.
After unrolling the skin I was amazed at the design and the quality feel of it. The design is just awesome and matches the style of my OCModShop very well. The skin is a big bigger than the case needs but this is so there is some excess for positioning and application. The skin feels very nice and the printing is very detailed. There were no blemishes or problems with the skin at all. I didn’t really know what to expect with this product since it is very unique. I have to say that I am very impressed with what they are doing though.
