How it works

We try to make it look simple, but in fact every Uncover is a complex operation involving a number of different expertises.

Uncover Macbook pro design
1. Design

First, one of our designers will work together with you to make the perfect cut-out design. Depending on your wishes, this can be a very fast process, or involve more drafts going back and forth. The designs should be simple, as well as beautiful and we live by the philosophy of less is more.

2. Creating The Inlay

After finalizing the design phase, we start the creation of the inlay. This is the piece of half-translucent plexiglass that we embed into the MacBook screen to be backlit. For most designs, this also includes the lasercutting of perfectly fitting aluminum '€˜islands'€™ to be encrusted into the plexiglass inlay.

3. Cutting The MacBook

Showtime. For some models, this step actually involves the careful disassembly of the MacBook'€s screen with the use of meticulously applied heat and suction cups. This generally takes an hour to do, after which we place the aluminum top cover under an industrial laser cutter to carve out your custom artwork.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

How does it work?

We won't reveal our secret sauce because it took a long time to get the recipe right, but suffice to say that we use the fact that there's a gigantic light panel behind the entire aluminium case.

What does the process cost?

Uncovering a MacBook is a costly process and definitely not for everyone. Our costs depend on the complexity of the design, the type of MacBook and the design work required on our side.

How does the process work?

1. We start out with some questions about your design and your MacBook.
2. Upon confirming your order and receiving payment, we will start to make the plexiglass inlay for your design.
3. Once your inlay is finished, we will give you the green light to ship us your MacBook, so we can start working on it right away. We will ship it back immediately upon completion.

Do we ship worldwide?

Yes, we do ship worldwide. We have shipped MacBooks succesfully to more than 40 different countries in the past 6 years.

Can it be done with the new Macbooks(2018/2019)?

Yes! We are the only company in the world that is capable to bring back the backlight! We did this for Wordpres, TNW, Automattic, an Ethereum enthousiast and many more!

What happens to my warranty?

Uncover takes over Apple's warranty with a limited 12 Month warranty on the screen. Any screen damage that is caused by the Uncover, and occurs in the 12 months after delivery, will be covered by our warranty.

How long does it take to Uncover my existing MacBook?

The procedure of making an Uncover and replace it on your MacBook will take 4 days plus the time it will take us to receive and return your MacBook, though we have some premium express options available.
