"Feels very much like paper!"

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.

“Gives you more control over your drawing hand!”

I installed the new Paperlike, and I’m honestly impressed! [It] feels like paper! That was my biggest issue when transitioning from paper to tablet. I wanted that paper feel, giving you more control over your drawing hand. The Paperlike really helps with that.

“Perfect for anyone who uses their iPad to read and/or take notes!”

I love it because it really does feel as if I was writing on actual paper, and I can use my iPad outside because the matte surface reduces sun reflection. Also, thanks to the super intuitive instructions and the application kit that comes with every Paperlike, it is really easy and quick to apply to the iPad.

A difference you can feel.

Nanodots are the teensy, tiny micro-beads responsible for giving Paperlike its unique, papery feel.

They provide haptic feedback in the form of ever-so-slight vibrations that emulate the natural drag and resistance of sketchbook paper.

You can feel the difference as you write and draw on your iPad.

The sensory feedback provides additional information that allows you to create more precise lines, whether you’re taking notes or working on your next artistic masterpiece!

A difference you can see.

Nanodots deliver more than our unique, papery feel.  They’re also responsible for the unparalleled transparency that you won’t find in other matte screen protectors.

Our Nanodots are distributed evenly across the surface of our screen protector using a unique (and completely secret) process that took years to create.

The result?

A screen protector with improved resistance, maximum transparency, and minimal distortions.
