Zoom on skin and vinyl shells for your Archos 40
Design skins and covers can be used for protection and personalization on your Archos 40. This is available on smartphones with “bare” designs produced by manufacturers such as Apple, where the metal and glass components of the device are exposed and vulnerable to damage.
They are separate cases, and generally allow the use of your Archos 40 directly in the shell (as a cover). Please check if this is the case on a case by case basis though. However, in many cases, a belt clip or other fastener gives them the functionality of a holster. They are made of hard plastic, rubber, or new vinyl tape.
Vinyl skins can be ordered from many websites and pre-cut to fit your cell phone or other electronic device.
The vinyl material can be calendered or cast, the latter being more expensive.
Calendered vinyl should only be used for a short average time (less than 2 years) while cast vinyl can be used in the longer term for your Archos 40. A calendered vinyl also tends to shrink in heat and can be shaped into any shape.
However, it could tarnish under direct sunlight. The current standard of calendered films is almost as good as poured vinyl. Cast vinyl avoids most problems, but costs up to 300% more.
The most popular is cast vinyl because of the wide range of designs available for your Archos 40.

Be sure to check that the ink does not affect your Archos 40 before going through such a process!
