    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!

    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.
