Patience Is Required
First and foremost, please keep in mind that this is a custom service that will require time and quite a bit of back-and-forth emailing. We are not mind readers and will need a lot of input to make your skin, what you want. We average 3 to 5 back-and-forth emails getting to the proofing process.
Please provide as much, detailed information as possible about your skin. If you have a sample picture, a link, sample text, sample fonts or anything else...feel free to send it along. We are very patient and will work with you until the design is exactly what you want. But please keep in mind that both the customer and SkinYourSkunk.com start this process "blind". The information we request, and the level of detail you provide dictates the level of "sight" we can achieve. If we can't envision the design...we can't make the design.
The language barrier. We speak English and sometimes that can be an issue when discussing a design...especially via email. While we will work with you to the best of our ability, if we simply can't understand what you are asking for, we simply can't satisfactorily make what you want. Hence...the final rule...cancellation.
SkinYourSkunk.com reserves the right to discontinue the custom design process at any time, for any reason. On the rare occasion that this may occur, SkinYourSkunk.com will refund any and all money you may have paid. However, after you approve the final design (PDF proof) and we send the design off to print, we CAN NOT PROCESS A REFUND. So...once you approve the PDF proof and make final payment...you are locked in. Please understand that sometimes based upon a customer's level of patience, a language barrier, etc., it may not be possible to complete the design. We will always try our best, but in a worst case situation, we may have to discontinue the process and refund your payment.
Contact us with a general idea of what you are look for. One of our Graphics Professionals will work with you via email to produce the perfect, personalized skin for your Guitar or Bass. Our base, average price is

Provide Your Measurements!
One of our graphic artists will work with you to create your custom guitar and/or headstock skin. But before beginning, we will need your measurements for the body and/or headstock of your instrument. Measuring your guitar is very important, and very easy. As you see in this diagram, you measure the height at the tallest part of the guitar body and the width at the widest part of the guitar body.
Round to the highest number of inches and we will automatically add one inch in each direction. (eg. We add two inches to the height and width). For odd shaped guitars, keep in mind that you are providing measurements for the final print. You want to assure that the vinyl rectangular print will cover every portion of your guitar.
Design, Printing & Shipping
You can provide us with sample pictures, have us search for that perfect image or even have us create something from scratch. If you provide a design/image, please keep in mind that 1500x1500 pixels in size is the minimum and the larger the better. We are very experienced in finding image and designing graphics from scratch.
After you have approved your skin, we print the high-definition graphic on our exclusive "Marine Grade" vinyl with a clear over-coat and adhesive backing. Your skin is quality checked, rolled, placed in a hard, cardboard tube and shipped within an additional 3 to 5 business days in most cases. We ship with USPS, delivery confirmation and tracking.
Your skin is represented by the GREEN RECTANGLE for a body skin and a YELLOW RECTANGLE for a headstock skin. Notice how it covers the entire area of the body or headstock. Using a ruler or tape measure, provide these WIDTH and HEIGHT measurements to your designer.
