Branding

Endorsing Your Brand With Mighty Skins

We all know the importance of properly branding your business, or rebranding after a company shift or huge new development.  However, most business consultants will only walk you through the technical side of branding.  So, you complete the work and you try and get the word out, but there has to be more you can do, right?  There sure is, you can try endorsing your brand with Mighty Skins.

Due to the fact that we allow our customers to design their own skins, creating a line of skins to endorse your brand is quite easy.  Simply upload your logo and let the creative juices flow.  Want to hand out some stainless-steel tumblers at your next trade show?  Brand them first and make sure people know exactly where they came from.

Sure, you could place an order to have some pens printed up with your company name or some ho-hum trinket that everyone is going to misplace or throw away, but that’s not memorable.  Our skins let you create an interesting and specialized design that will make sure people remember the name of your business.

It’s a super easy process and our design center on our website will walk you through each step of the process.  If you want your workforce laptops to look uniform, create a skin with your logo for each of your workmen.  This way, you’re telling the customer that your business is one to be remembered for the future.

If you’ve gone through the arduous process of branding your business, but you’re not sure how to sustain your momentum, start skinning.  Nearly everything you use in an office can be skinned from laptops to cell phones to tablets.  Creating a universal skin will draw the eye naturally and signify that you’re presenting a unified front, plus people just may ask where they can get one if they like your business enough.

Don’t let your brand be forgotten, skin it today!  For more information about customized skins, check out our website!

Stockings

Stuff Your Stockings With Skins

Dismayed though we all may be, the holidays are right around the corner.  This means that another year has flown by at a break-neck pace and we are all stuck trying to find the right gift for all of the people on our lists.  Though the holidays may be a lovely time for family gathering and togetherness, no one can argue that the gifting process isn’t stressful.  This year, don’t stress. Here are five great reasons to stuff your stockings with skins!

  1. They’re Inexpensive – Stuck in a coffee mug rut with your kids’ teachers? Consider purchasing a tumbler and using a skin to personalize the gift.  Our skins are high quality enough to make a great gift, but inexpensive enough that you can get one for practically everyone!
  2. They’re For Everyone – A skin isn’t just something you buy for a teenage boy or a teacher. Literally everyone has a product that can be skinned and we have plenty of designs from which to choose so you don’t have to worry about buying the same thing for everyone.  Boy, girl, man, or woman, skins are a great way to make a statement.
  3. They’re Fun – Skins aren’t the typical gift. Your boss doesn’t need another pen or personalized notepad, but you know that cell phone he treasures?  That needs a skin and you’re the perfect person to deliver!   Be remembered in the office and let your boss express his love for dragons or tacos, or whatever he’s into!
  4. They’re Memorable – Want to get in good with the new HR person in your company? A skin is a better way to do it than a scratch off lottery ticket!  If they don’t win on one of those, they won’t remember it next year.  However, chances are, they’ll think of you every time they take a sip of their drink or open their laptop.
  5. They’re Just Better – Stop buying gifts that get thrown away or returned! Buy something that says you were actually thinking about that person and what they like when you purchased their gift.  Gift giving is all about the thought.  It doesn’t have to cost a boatload of money if it shows you really considered the person when you give it to them!

Amazon

Top Amazon Products We Can Skin

Since the mid-nineties, the internet has been a thing of beauty for many people as it allows us to accomplish a lot of tasks that used to require several trips around town.  We can shop, we can pay our bills, maintain our insurance, and chat with people from different areas.  Since the internet became a staple in almost every home, one site has been there to provide us with a one-stop shop for nearly everything we want.  That site is Amazon and here are the top Amazon products we can skin.

Certainly, Amazon has proven their worth by offering lower cost solutions for many home desires from e-readers to tablets to speakers.  However, those products are usually pretty non-descript and lack the personal touch we often want from our gadgets.  That’s where we come in!  We offer skins for many of the most popular products to add a little flair from your personality.

  3. Fire Tablet – Did you buy into the hype surrounding other tablets or did you opt for the lower priced powerhouse of a tablet that Amazon offers? Well, if you did, we have the perfect compliment to your new device!  From landscapes to patterns to skulls, we make it easy to express yourself while protecting your tablet!

Tumblers

The Tumbler Craze

For years there have been hundreds of solutions created for keeping beverages either hot or cold, but rarely could the same drink container do both.  Then something crazy happened, the Yeti company burst onto the scene with a stainless-steel tumbler that kept ice in cube form for hours or could keep your coffee steaming hot well past your lunch break at work.  After that, it seemed as though everyone was releasing a stainless-steel beverage container.  Since it looks like everyone has one, it’s nearly impossible to differentiate, but we’ve got you covered.  MightySkins is the answer to the tumbler craze!

Admit it, you can name at least five people who carry a stainless-steel tumbler with them at all times, and why not?  They’re nearly perfect.  They can keep a drink cool while you lounge around the pool all day long or keep your cocoa warm while you rake some leaves.  There’s a reason that they’re so popular and it’s because they’re awesome.

Due to the recent popularity of stainless steel beverage containers, we had no choice but the answer the call.  Think about it, if three people at your job have the same tumbler, how do you tell them apart?  With a skin, that’s how!

We offer skins for tumblers for ten different major brands from Yeti to Ozark Trail.  It doesn’t matter if you have a 22-ounce Pelican Tumbler or a 64 ounce bottle from RTIC, we have a skin to make yours stand out!  Are you crazy about sushi?  Do you have an undeniable love for the mythical unicorn?  Are you loco for tacos?  We have your back, or your cup!

If our traditional skins don’t suit your needs, we also have several brands for which you can create a customized skin.  Want to make sure your kids aren’t fighting over their tumblers?  Create your own skin and eliminate the possibility!

It doesn’t matter how you carry your drink, but you can make sure you set yourself apart from everyone else with a skin from MightySkins.  Check out our website and feast your eyes on everything we have to offer!

Gift

The Perfect Gift

As the holiday season approaches, many early birds have started searching for that perfect gift to buy for their family and friends.  Don’t be left out in the cold buying some run of the mill present that everyone already has.  How many neckties does Dad really need?  This year, consider a skin for your loved one’s favorite device.  A skin from us makes the perfect holiday gift for your family and friends.

When you think about your brother, your mom, or your best friend, what is one thing they always have with them?  Is it a tumbler full of their favorite coffee?  Is it their beloved cell phone that they never go without?  Do they perhaps always carry a tablet or laptop with them wherever they go?  Well, think about how much better that device would be with one of our skins.

If you know that your sister has a yen for all things butterflies, consider gifting her one of our many skins that have a butterfly theme.  Our skins are well made, yet inexpensive and make a great present for anyone on your holiday gift list.  If you want your loved one to know you were really thinking about what would make them happy, our skins are the perfect way to do that.

If you don’t want one of our ready made skins, consider creating a great collage using an online photo program and uploading the image to our site to create a custom skin for everyone on your list.  Have a great family photo, but don’t have the funds to have it matted and framed for the whole clan?  Wouldn’t it be a great gift for your family to create a skin for their favorite device on our site?

From tumblers to laptops, we have a skin for many different electronic devices.  If your little brother can’t leave his drone alone, personalize it for him.  If your co-worker is constantly confusing her tablet for yours, make hers stand out with a great skin that you know she’d love.

When it comes to Boss’s Day, Hanukkah, Christmas, or birthdays, skins make the best gift that money can buy.  Check out our site for the full array of what we have to offer!

Students

The Perfect Device Skins for Students

It’s official, summer is on its way out.  You’re starting to see school buses on the road again, district billboards are announcing the first day, and you’ve probably dropped some money buying new clothes, college books, and new shoes for the student in your life. However, did you remember to protect and cover some of their devices before they head back to school?  We have some perfect skins for students.

Putting a skin on your student’s device isn’t only about customizing their electronic experience.  These days, you can’t be too careful and a skin allows your student to protect their device.  It also can provide parents with peace of mind as a skin will create a way to better identify the gadget in the event it goes missing in school.   Here are just some of the devices students are taking to school right now.

  • Laptops – With skins available for over ten brand names and hundreds of models, we have the right product to make your students computer stand out. By choosing from one of our unique skins, you’re not only protecting an expensive product from scratches, but you’re also ensuring that there is a solid description of the product should something happen. If the model of your favorite student’s laptop isn’t available in our online catalog, we offer a universal skin to fit nearly any laptop on the market!
  • Tablets – Whether your child has an iPad or a Fire tablet, we have a skin for it. This skin will set your student’s favorite tablet apart from the rest of the pack.  Tablets are expensive, but protecting it doesn’t have to be. We have hundreds of skins from which you can choose to give your child’s tablet a stylish and distinctive new look.
  • Headphones – Let’s face it, headphones are not cheap these days, so the idea of your child losing them at school is a little bit terrifying. It would be a lot easier to identify your student’s particular headphones in a lost and found if they’re a little bit different than the others.  We offer skins for a great deal of the popular brands.
  • Fidget Spinners – First, make sure your child’s school hasn’t banned these popular items before they take theirs with them. However, if they’re allowed to have them you’re definitely going to want to be able to readily identify your student’s fidget spinner.  We have plenty of skins that will make your child’s spinner one of a kind!
  • Cell Phone – Personalizing your child’s favorite device is important when you think about the fact that everyone has the same phones with the same popular cases. Skin your student’s phone or the case and make it stand out from the rest.  By choosing a customized skin, you can add their name or a monogram to their product.

Don’t send your student back to school without skinning their stuff first!  Check out our selection on our website!

Application of skins

How To Properly Apply a Skin

So you’ve joined the ranks of people on a quest to personalize all of their favorite devices.  You’ve done the heavy lifting and picked your pattern and you’ve waited out the mail carrier to bring it to your home.  However, now you’ve encountered the task of outfitting your item of choice with the skin.  Don’t worry, this helpful blog will teach you how to properly apply a skin from Mighty Skins.

  1. Clean it Up – Whatever device you’ve chosen, from your cooler to your favorite tumbler, we have one rule. It’s got to be clean.  Simply take a damp cloth (don’t saturate your electronic devices) and wipe it down, making sure to clear any debris.  You don’t want to use any solvents or ammonia based cleaners during this part, as it may cause damage to the skin or adhering issues.
  2. Check the Skin – Sometimes, in the mailing process stuff might be on the top of the skin itself. Make sure there’s nothing hanging off or clinging to the edges.  If you’re satisfied with the appearance, go ahead and wash your hands and ensure you’ve dried them thoroughly as all of the excess oils in your skin can also cause issues with your skin application.
  3. Remove It – Now, we remove the backing to the skin, but please be careful during this process. You’re going to want to make sure that you’re not inadvertently stretching the skin out or it obviously isn’t going to fit properly.  All of our skins are made to fit your devices precisely, so this should never be a problem unless the skin has become damaged during the backing removal.  This will be especially important in the narrow areas of the skin.
  4. Place It – Now comes the moment of truth. Lay your skin on your device precisely, paying attention to any buttons, cameras, latches, etc.  Don’t worry if you don’t get it right the first time, you can easily remove the skin to shift the positioning.  Keep doing this until you’re satisfied with the placement, it’s not going to lose its stickiness.
  5. Smooth It Out Now – Once you’ve gotten the skin into the position that it is meant to be in, smooth it out. Starting from the middle and working your way toward the edges, press down firmly, removing any awkward bubbles or ridges along the way.  You can use a credit card wrapped in a paper towel to assist in the smoothing process.

That’s it! You’re done!  Now you’re on your way to enjoying a personalized device.  Doesn’t the simplicity make you want to skin another device?  Check out what we have to offer here.

Custom Skins

How to Create a Custom Skin

Custom SkinsWhen it comes to your life, do you want what everyone else has or would you like to turn your stuff into a personal statement? You have a limited number of options when it comes to the traditional cases for your gear that you can find in stores, but MightySkins has a great deal of choices for personalizing your devices.

While we have hundreds of designs available, we have found that many of our customers may want to take a more personal approach when adding MightySkins to their favorite stuff. Sure that Taco skin for your tumbler is awesome and gets a lot of compliments, it might not be exactly what you were looking for.  Or maybe you just want to add your initials for that extra personalized touch?  Well don’t worry, we have an option to suit you no matter what!

Aside from all of our attractive skin options for most of the devices people hold dearly these days, you can also Create Your Own!  From phones to tumblers we want to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want from your skin.  Here’s a brief walkthrough of how to create a custom skin.

  2. Design – The next step will take you to our design studio where you will be asked to first upload an image or choose one of our available designs. Once you’ve chosen the image you want for your skin, you will be asked to add text (if you want). You can choose a favorite catchphrase, a quotation, or simply add your monogram. Choose your font, the placement of the text, and then hit the preview button. Make sure your image is PG rated, however, as we won’t reproduce photos containing explicit content.
  3. Buy It – The final step in the process is purchasing your skin. Yes, it’s really that easy. Once you enter all of the vital information, your order is sent to our team.
