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.
I'm a pencil artist and was curious about the iPad Pro as another medium to work on. I like it very much, but your invention of PaperLike has made the experience of drawing and sketching on an iPad feel very real which has improved my art work. Thank you very.

Loved getting that coarser feeling while writing. And I use my iPad to watch movies. I didn’t find any big difference in quality. Well worth it!
Really enjoy writing on the PaperLike product.
Couple of months ago I bought an ipad pro, since I travel quite often I really needed it, the problem was: I couldn't draw on it, the screen was too slippery for me, so I bought a screen protector from you, and THIS IS AMAZING! I CAN DRAW NOW! YOU ARE THE BEST!! THANK YOU!
Paper like is a must have for anyone that wants to do any sort of digital drawing on the Ipad . I had a quick delivery even with the free option for shipment .
Love the PaperLike on my iPad Pro. Makes the writing with the apple pencil a lot closer to that of a paper surface which was what I was hoping it would do. It delivered! One huge bonus is it that it pretty much has eliminated all the intense smudging I would create when penciling… So happy with the paper like. Will be getting another for the other iPad Pro I ordered.
A very responsive company. Thank You
For someone who does digital calligraphy and lettering, it proves to be a game-changer. It improves my writing experience vastly and I have better control of my strokes. And that scratchy sound from my writing is a bonus. Highly recommended.
Makes a huge difference when using the Apple Pencil on the iPad. It really does feel like writing on paper. Great job and congratulations on making such a useful product.
This product has really lived up to its reputation! Fantastic!
Usually with online purchases the product turns up and it's never as good as it described itself online! Fortunately, this is not the case with my paperlike screen cover.
If you're serious about drawing on your ipad you need one of these, it makes such a difference when it comes to accuracy and mark making.
Plus it just looks and feels cool even when i'm not drawing on it, it's like switching from gloss to uncoated in printing terms.
I love PaperLike, it made drawing on the iPad Pro the best digital drawing experience. It is so good that I find myself using it instead of my big Cintiq :) Applying it on the iPad is a bit tricky but the instructions are very clear.
Hello! i'm a video game illustrator and i decided to change my Cintiq companion hybrid to get the new ipad pro 10.5. Drawing on a glass is for me a very uncomfortable experience, so i looked for a good screen protector and discovered Paperlike: the sensations are amazing ! Even the "sound" of the hand on a paper is here. Yes, the screen is a bit more blurred, but you get honestly very quickly used to it and no problem to watch movies, play or to go on the web. Jan had a very good idea with this project and did the job perfectly: good presentation, fast delivery, nice contact !
I'm still mentally preparing myself to apply my paperlike but that's a personal issue pls ignore it.
So I made my purchase on black friday and in the panic of the last few seconds I accidentally chose the wrong model size. I contacted the customer service and with the expectation of having to buy a new one at full price but I actually got a response of them willing to work something out with me. Super nice and patient and understanding.
You should know I'm normally not the type to write reviews, especially not this long. But their CS made me wanna show Sapper my Appreciation and Gratitude.
It’s true. Works. Really.
I LOVE the texture. I am so happy with my PaperLike I can’t go back. Drawing with the Apple pencil is amazing. Also finger swiping is great with the PaperLike as well. I tell all my friends with iPad Pros they MUST OWN a PaperLike.
it really makes it easier to draw on the iPad! Easy to put on.
Thanks so much
Very good screenprotector. Nice surface and reduces reflections.
The texture is exactly what I expected - paper like!
The product is really close to what I was hoping for and I can draw easily with it, which will allow me to save paper. It's really surprising and every time I use it I'm happy.
It changed completely my writing experience with the iPad Pro. Now when i take notes it seems like paper, no more ticks-and-clicks of the Apple pencil on the glass screen.
