I have the carbon fiber and it's my second one, why is it that they shrink overtime? I placed the carbon fiber perfectly but after a month or so, it shrinks ! Anyone had this issue with the slickwrap?

I have the same issue. I would say its because of the hot getting backside of the iPhone when you do big things with it. I will write Slickwraps an email, maybe they will change it. If not i will just buy me a new slickwrap. 20$ isn't that much now.. but still sad because its really nice

Yeah I had the rear Gunmetal wrap on mine shrink. Annoyed me so much over time I ditched it and went back to my Otterbox case for scratch protection instead of the Bookbook

I wrote Slickwraps an email with that issue.
They replied quickly and asked for pictures which i send them today.
I will write here how they react on it.

Personally even if they offered a replacement (unless they fix the issue) I would steer clear.

That's total crap! They should replace at no cost or remove their garbage shrinkable defective product from the market!

Great businesss model that drums up repeat businesss on their products. Sell faulty products and then offer a discount to purchase more faulty products, nice ;)

I do agree that the slick wraps do shrink on the back, I haven't used the i carbons yet.

No Problem shrinking after 6 months.. They use 3M material. Always the best customer service.. I would just reach out to them and get a simple replacement. crap Happens.
