How to apply your Paperlike step-by-step

Too impatient to watch a whole video? We understand. For you and everyone wanting a written step-by-step application guide, here you go ...

Before you start ... A pro tip

You’ll achieve the best result if you apply the Paperlike (or any other screen protector) in a dust-free environment. If you don’t live in a lab or the ISS, the next best thing is your bathroom, after a hot shower. The hot steam binds the floating particles, so they sink to the floor (that’s why your bathroom floor is dirty all the time).

Preparation time. You should have in front of you:

2 x Paperlike screen protector

2x help sticker sets

1x dry wipe

2x wet wipes

Step 1 - Attach help stickers

Place your Paperlike onto your iPad with side 2 facing up, and make sure the home-button or face-id are not being covered by the Paperlike. Then apply the guide-stickers on one side of the iPad, and the round sticker on the opposite side.

Step 2 - Align Paperlike on iPad

Center the Paperlike on your iPad and make sure it has the same distance from the edge on all sides. The easiest way to check this is to have a look at two opposing corners. If these have equal spacing compared to each other, then it’s perfect.

Step 3 - Secure guide-Stickers on iPad

While holding the Paperlike in place, stick the guide stickers to the iPad securely. Tip: stick part of the guide-sticker on the desk, then push the iPad sideways, which will apply the guide stickers on the back of the iPad.

Step 4 - Open the Paperlike like a door

Flip the Paperlike "open" - use the guide-stickers as hinge.

Step 5 - Use the wet wipe to clean the screen

Clean the iPad surface with a wet-wipe, make sure you remove all smudges.

Step 6 - Use the dust absorber to remove dust

Some dust particles may have collected on the screen while cleaning it. Remove all of them, and go to the next step as quickly as possible to avoid more dust from settling on the iPad screen.

Step 7 - Peel of side 1 (sticky side) protection foil

Remove side 1 (sticky side) in a quick upward movement. This reduces the risk of dust that collected on side 1, falling on the iPad screen.

Step 8 - Place the peeled Paperlike on your iPad

While pulling firmly, place the Paperlike on your iPad, don’t worry if you see big bubbles forming.

Step 9 - Push out air bubbles

If you see bubbles, don't worry, this is normal. Use a credit card (or similar) and gently push them out to the sides.

Step 10 - Remove the side 2 protective layer

 Be careful not to remove the actual Paperlike screen protector from the iPad.

Congratulations you’re done! If you still have minor bubbles, no worries, most vanish in the next few days. If there are still some bubbles you just can’t push out, please have a look at the troubleshooting page here.
