I love seeing companies using a Silhouette or Cricut machine in an uncommon way. Today, I’m sharing how Clearplex uses a Silhouette Cameo to make custom screen protectors for electronics. Wondering where I heard about them? From the All Things Silhouette Conference in Newport Beach!
How Clearplex Uses a Silhouette Cameo in their Business
Clearplex uses a specialty film to cut custom sized phone and tablet screen protectors. They first created a unique cutting mat to make sure their film placement is correct:
Next, Clearplex has created an app that stores the dimensions of popular phones and tablets. To make the Silhouette Cameo cut a specific size, they simply connect the Cameo to their app:
Then, the Cameo cuts the material to size:
After the film is cut and weeded, it’s applied to the phone or tablet using a wet method and a squeegee.
Here’s a before picture of my self applied old screen protector (I know, it was pretty bad):
Here’s what my Clearplex screen protector looks like, 1 week after application:
Clearplex’s unique vision using a Silhouette Cameo in their business has landed them a spot in Best Buy Canada!
If you’d like to get in touch with Clearplex about their products or using their system, their website is available here. When you reach over to your Silhouette Cameo today, remember to think outside the box because the possibilities really are limitless! Special thanks to Brad from Clearplex for providing the Best Buy photo above, a demonstration of their proprietary system, and a complimentary screen protector.
