The iPad’s smooth, glass screen lacks any kind of resistance. So when you’re writing or drawing it’s difficult to get the same level of precision and control as you would on a sheet of paper. We optimized the ideal amount of friction for long drawing sessions or those endless meeting notes. And, no, the friction won’t burn out your Apple Pencil tips.
Many screen protectors are difficult to apply, tear easily, or lift after just a few uses. We didn’t just develop the ideal screen protector, we also developed the easiest way to apply it. Each pack comes with everything you need, detailed instructions, and a video that walks you through the process. Plus, we always give you a spare in every pack.
Using an iPad in the sun means glare that hurts your eyes and reflections that make the screen hard to see. The textured surface of the PaperLike screen protector helps to minimize that glare so you can sketch or write wherever you are. You can work for longer and be more accurate in every stroke.
Hear all about it straight from our customers
Our founder, and the creator of PaperLike, Jan, loved working in a paperless environment. He was so excited about using an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil together. But then he tried them.
The feeling of hard rubber writing on glass was awkward and the Apple Pencil would slide over the screen without resistance, or get stuck on patches of oil or sweat from the palm of his hand. Trying to control the Apple Pencil with no resistance gave him hand cramps and the whole experience was a giant disappointment.
So Jan went looking for a solution. And when he couldn’t find one? He made it.
In 2017, over 2000 backers joined the PaperLike Kickstarter campaign to help bring a new iPad screen protector, one optimized for artists and notetakers, into the world.
Since then we haven’t looked back. PaperLike is now a small, passionate team working alongside Jan to ignite our customers’ love of sketching and writing on an iPad that feels like just their notebook.
