PRODUCT INFO

What is a KARVT skin?

KARVT skins are unique, beautiful wooden skins designed exclusively for Mac products. Our skins are meant to evoke character and style, while at the same time offering protection to the outside of your computer. Each skin is equipped with 3M backing that adheres flawlessly to your notebook.

How long will KARVT skins last?

Our skins are meant to be a long-lasting product. With proper care, your KARVT skin should last the lifetime of your computer, providing a real  wood finish, each with its own unique character.

Will a KARVT skin void my AppleCare warranty?

No. Your AppleCare agreement will stay intact when using KARVT skins.

Are KARVT skins removable?

Our skins are meant to be semi-permanent. However, if for any reason you want to discard the skin, it is still removable with little to no residue remaining. Any remaining residue will come off easily with any common sticker-removal liquid. We've noticed that re-positionable skins tend to not last and weather over multiple uses. We like our skins to endure and not peel back over time. If you decide to remove the skin, please be aware that since it is real wood you can expect some cracking and splintering. Please use caution if you decide to remove the skin. Also keep in mind a residue maybe left behind but it can be cleaned off. When we remove them ourselves we use a plastic paint scraper and pop it off vs ripping it off. The residue will come off it may just take a little bit of elbow grease. 

How do I apply and/or remove the skin?

Proper application and removal of skins can be reviewed in video found in our blog section.

Are KARVT skins re-usable?

Our skins are not re-usable. They are designed for one-time use. Re-usable skins peel over time and tend to not last. We are determined to make KARVT skins that last and won’t peel back over time with too many applications.

How thin are KARVT skins?

They are very thin, .025 inches. A comparison would be the thinness of a healthy finger nail. 

Does the IPhone 4 ‘Bumper’ fit with KARVT skins?

Yes. 

When will you release skins for new Apple products?

Because of the manner in which Apple releases new products, we are just as enthusiastic as you are when new technology becomes available for purchase. Given a few weeks, we will be able to offer updated sizing and KARVT skins for new releases. KARVT no longer manufactures skins that are cut out to embellish the Apple Trademark. Instead, we offer mac skins that either cover the logo, or have a circle cut out. We hope to offer more choices in the near future, and these will become available for purchase through our website. Please refer to our product images before making your selection.
