DecalGirl Surface Pro skins add stylish scratch protection

If you need some scratch protection and like fancy artwork, DecalGirl may be ideal for your Surface Pro.

Microsoft's Surface Pro (2017) is in many ways the pinnacle of design. But sometimes you want to add scratch protection, maybe embellish it with some fresh designs.

I recently reviewed the Surface Pro Marimekko prints, but today I'm looking at the popular DecalGirl skins to see how they hold up.

At $25, the DecalGirl skins come in hundreds of designs, all licensed and credited to the artists who created them. You can upload your own artwork to make a custom one, as well. (Some schools use DecalGirl skins for their education PCs to make them more identifiable.)

So, how do these fancy stickers actually hold up? Check out my video review to see what I liked and what I didn't. If you are worried that putting stickers on your PC may cause it to run hotter than usual, there's no need for concern.

Oh, and in case you really like the design used in this review, it is called "Kreo" and you can find it here.
