How can Paperlike improve your iPad experience?
For serious sketchers ...
Artists all over the world love the improved precision and tactile feel of using Paperlike. It’s optimized to create the ideal amount of friction for extended drawing sessions and the right stroke resistance for optimal accuracy. So instead of sliding your Apple Pencil around on the glass surface, it feels just like a page in your sketchbook.
“I just put it on the other day, and I LOVE it. I feel like I have more control of my pen strokes in Procreate. The glare reduction is great too!”
Brooke Robinson - GoodType
For busy professionals...
The iPad has become invaluable at work. Whether you’re annotating drafts, taking notes, or sketching out your big ideas… add an Apple Pencil and you have a powerful tool for business. With Paperlike you can take things to the next level, reduce muscle fatigue caused by writing on a glass tablet, and make your iPad feel just like a notebook. All while keeping the convenience of digital.
“Paperlike is THE must-have accessory I recommend whenever I teach how to take notes paperless on iPads using an Apple Pencil.“
Tom Solid, Founder of the #PaperlessMovement
When you’re off the clock...
Unlike other screen protectors, Paperlike enhances your viewing experience. Made with superior display quality in mind, Paperlike never disrupts the experience of watching Netflix or YouTube. And the matte, anti-glare finish even lets you enjoy screen time while in the sun.
“The display noise has now been almost completely eliminated. This is as close to a perfect screen protector for my treasured iPad as I can imagine.”
Ali Abdaal - Tech/Student Youtuber
See the Nanodots effect:
As standard ...
Every Paperlike has a little bit of magic engineered into its surface with our Nanodots technology. These microbeads are distributed across the screen protector and make your Apple Pencil vibrate ever so slightly so it feels like you're writing on paper. They’re specially designed so that the display light shines around and through them to minimize refractions. So unlike other screen protectors, Paperlike will never spoil your view.
- Made for the Apple Pencil
Other screen protectors destroy the tip of your Apple Pencil in no time. With its optimized Nanodots, Paperlike gives you maximum paper-feel and minimal tip consumption. So you can enjoy for longer.
- Almost no light diffusion
Minimize distracting glare and keep your brilliant display quality!
Don't take our word for it.
"You have to try this!"
There is actually a lot more resistance between the tip of the pencil and the display now - it really changes the way the iPad feels.Mark Stapf Tech Reviewer
“I'm drawing on clouds of cotton candy”
The nice texture and grip, make it easier to get what I have in my head on to the screen.Ramona MacLean Illustrator
"A must-have for graphic designers!"
I always loved the idea of Paperlike. Being able to add this tiny layer to your iPad - that makes it so much easier to write and draw on the display - is incredible!Daniel ZONEofTECH
"Feels like a massive upgrade"
If you do a lot of handwritten notes or drawing on your iPad, the new PaperLike is a must. The newest version only doubles down on what made this product great to begin with.Chris DailyTekk
Hi, I'm Jan, founder and creator of Paperlike. I always wanted to work paperless and was super excited when the iPad Pro and the Pencil first came out. But then I tried them. The feeling of hard rubber writing on glass was awkward, and my Pencil was sliding all over the screen. I needed a better solution but couldn't find one.
So I threw myself into developing my own solution and came up with what you now know as Paperlike. A Kickstarter in 2017 showed I wasn’t the only one with these issues and led to the founding of Paperlike as a company.
In 2019 with a small, dedicated team around me, we went to Kickstarter again to make a next-generation, even better version of the Paperlike. And we’re excited to share Paperlike 2 with you today.
I still use my iPad with Paperlike on a daily basis, as do thousands of artists, creators, and doers all around the world.
For that, I'm very thankful.
