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.
really nice product
I was rather sceptical when I ordered this product for the simple reason that I was certain I would mess up the installation.
The instructions were clear and as a miracle the whole process went smooth.
The product feels indeed much better to write on than the normal glass feel.
I have seen some comments about the view getting grainy. I use it mostly for work, not for movies or games. I have not had any issues.
All in all an excellent product and great value.
I had a lot of trouble getting used to hand writing on the iPad for meeting notes, etc., but the texture and matte finish of the paper like cover immediately made it more comfortable for writing notes but also much, much better for drawing - especially with pencil. Love it and can’t recommend more! Ordering one for my boss next.
richardartus@i haven’t got the right paper gmail.com because I ordered the wrong size. However Edouard in customer service sorted quickly and efficiently sending out a replacement - no questions. Throughout the process he made sure of customer satisfaction - very impressive. If the products as good as the service I’ll be delighted
Paperlike is just brilliant. I'm generally not a fan of screencovers on mobile devices, whatsoever. But I was too curious not to try this one. The mounting is easy and well explained and the result is JUST WHAT YOU WANT. Highly recommended for everybody who uses the pencil a lot and misses the old school paper feeling.
Feels like paper 😁
looking forward to receiving my paperlike 2 but PLEASE plus a carboard in it or a do not bend sticker as my mailman is an orc (last time it arrived bent and with a hit point in the middle of the sheets! I'm sure it will be perfect!
Très bonne instruction pour l’installation. Facile à nettoyer. Écriture agréable
PaperLike iPad Screen Protectors
Sorry, there is no problems, I'm totally in love with the feeling when I draw
Good but the livraison is’nt verry good ... but cool !
I’m super happy to work with paper like!!
I'm still blown away on how it feels to write using the apple pencil! Feels like paper, no fingerprint...
In my opinion, the screen sharpness reduced because of the anti-glare / paper texture, but I can live with that, still, it's an amazing product!
This is the second time I order paperlike. Absolutely love it. Feels like u are drawing on paper. I recommend this to everyone that like to make drawning on iPad. And it protects your screen across! One word. BRILLIANT!
PaperLike iPad Screen Protectors
Bought an iPad Mini 5 about a month ago and the Pencil 2 weeks ago. Got the case as well, but was missing something. I didn't like feeling as if the Pencil might scratch the screen, plus the way fingerprints would stay on the screen; so I picked up PaperLike. Holy! It made such a big difference. While there are 2 protectors in the packaging, I only used 1. Might just end up putting it on my sons Mini 4...
I have no complaints about PaperLike. The only thing i suggest it a do not bend label because my mailman curve my package
it's very simple, if you like draw and if you have iPad.... You buy now a paper like.
This is an amazing product for you'r next project.
Thank's a lot to all team and client service for your rapidity, patience and listening.
Have a good day..
Hi Jan Sapper,
I am very happy with PaperLike!
I installed it in the bathroom, it's perfect. My iPad Pro 12.9 has taken a new dimension.
Thank you for your ingenuity!

At the beginning I wasn’t so sure if it was the right choice, BUT when I touched the screen with the pen for the first time it was marvelous. I love the sound that comes from the contact when your drawing, it’s so satisfying and for all of my friends relaxing
So amazing...feels like drawing on paper in real
I really like the writing surface much better than without PaperLike.

I love working on Paperlike.
Cant believe how much difference it made. Finally enjoying the full iPad experience with this screen protector
No more finger marks! So happy. Safe delivery to Australia. I was able to put it on my iPad Pro perfectly and I didn’t think I would be able to so if I can do it, anyone can do it. It looks and feels great. I love it. You need to try this!
The quality of the product is received with the deepest personal and professional gratitude. You’ve changed my relationship with these tools in a way that Steve Jobs, Adobe and Tesla evolve products. Thx
Feels like writing on paper without the paper cuts
Very disappointed in this product. Considering how much it costs in relation to competitors, it doesn’t perform well at all. The texture is slightly better than others, but still not paper. The main issue comes from the distortion it creates. It’s so obnoxious on a white screen that it’s almost painful to take notes. I would definitely not recommend this to anyone
Highly recommended ! The feeling is the same of writing on a real paper!
I purcjased it and never received it, after a week I sent th a message and they sent an other one which I received with no issues, the product is amazing and I can’t wait for the Paperlike 2.
The texture is really good but my screen looks dimmer after I put it on. It decrease my user experience of watching movies.
First things first, when I first ordered my Paperlike, I expected it to take around 3 weeks for it to come as my friend’s order took roughly that long. However my order arrived 1 week earlier than expected and I was delighted.
Application tutorial was great and easy to follow, and after using my iPad extensively with Paperlike on, it has really made a positive difference. I could definitely tell the difference from a demo iPad that has no screen protector on it haha. Overall, a purchase that’s totally worth it.
improved my handwriting & doesn't distort images.
Happy to meet PaperLike last year so
that I’m capable to enjoy a feeling of writing on my iPad like on paper that allows me to take better notes.However , given that it fairly make a difference on terrible watching.
Works like a charm, it feels a bit like paper. It is not paper of course but the point is that it does give you just enough friction to get a more natural feel when you are drawing. Applying it takes some careful handling. Since the first version the way you stick it on has been improved, with extra tags and stickers. Also, the video is very helpful. Note that it says '1 x Paperlike Screen Protector', but you actually get two (2) sets of sheets and tags/wipes etc. So when in doubt: go for it. Highly recommended !
It’s one of the best protectors that I have, very easy to put and perfect to write with the Apple Pencil
One of the best screen protector I’ve ever used, no reflection, no thickness, easy to apply, and paper feels.... after trying paperlike I am quite sure and satisfied of trying other fake names.
I also appreciate the way of contacting with customer,
I’m totally satisfy, I really recommend this product.
Love the texture! Before using the paperlike, the pencil was moving way too fast while drawing, like slipery. Now with the paperlike on, the speed is perfect, I have more control. :) Recommend it!
I removed my glass cover for my iPad and replaced with a PaperLike which I had been using before I got the glass. The glass cannot match the PaperLike experience I might try PaperLike on glass but I am already having problems with getting my iPad to respond to touches. I don’t know if there is any evidence of glass being more protective.
Turned my iPAD pro into a sheet of paper. Believe the hype it's real! Amazing!!!
I love it! Great feeling while drawing - and this sound! I`m so happy I decided for this protector <3
When my films first arrived, both of them were dented and I had to retort to use the film with the least dents, causing an annoying bubble on my screen. However, when I stated my problem I received an email from one of Paperlike’s staff members and they immediately arranged to send a second set of films for free! I was not expecting to get anything, but here I am writing a review on my new dent-free screen protector.
After using Paperlike for almost a month now, I noticed a great improvement in my writing! My handwriting is much neater, which means that the friction between the tip of the Apple Pencil and the screen has improved as well. Swiping on my screen is smoother and does not hinder any touch movements. I highly recommend this product to any iPad users!!
All designers should have this PaperLike. It makes sketching more enjoyable. I love it!
Their customer service is wonderful too.
