Apple Pencil on iPad with Paperlike

Regret buying the Apple Pencil?

The Paperlike is a screen protector that makes your iPad display feel like paper.

Say goodbye to rubber on glass and hello to the unmatched tactile satisfaction of Paperlike. Write and draw on your iPad with the precision and comfort of your favorite paper notebook.

Writing on glass… just ain’t it

You bought the Apple Pencil because you wanted to bring the pen-on-paper experience you love to the digital world.

Instead, using the Apple Pencil on your iPad has been…


Each rubber-on-glass stroke is a battle against control, leaving you with jagged lines and uneven strokes.


Instead of enhancing your iPad, the Apple Pencil just makes detailed work harder than it should be. Your hand sticks, your lines smudge, and the whole experience falls short of the promise.


Long drawing or writing sessions on the slick iPad display can lead to a cramping wrist, turning your flow of productivity into a painful chore.

Unlock the full potential of your Apple Pencil

The Apple Pencil experience could be just like writing and drawing on your favorite paper.

With our screen protector you get…

Perfect precision

The Paperlike’s finely-tuned resistance mimics premium paper, turning each stroke of the Apple Pencil into a precise line on your iPad display.

Enhanced control

The increased haptic feedback of the Paperlike’s surface offers the same amount of control you get when you write or draw on real paper.

With Paperlike, your hand rests naturally and moves freely, reducing cramps, wrist pain, fingerprints, and smudges.

Best for Apple Pencil application

It takes a little more effort to install it perfectly than some other options. However, it's the best of both worlds for viewing and writing with the Apple Pencil. I've tried many other cheaper options, but none compared to this one.

I use my apple pencil a lot more now

I was never into that feeling of the Apple Pencil sliding across the glass surface. So much so I ended up getting a Remarkable2 device which I use a lot. Before giving up on the iPad and Pencil however, I got the PL2.1, and it’s really awesome. I like the feel of it, not just for Pencil but when using my fingers to point/side/swipe. Anti glare is awesome. Apple Pencil is now my friend again, and I like writing and drawing much more with this screen cover. I know some folks think it’s expensive, but if you think about it, the Apple Pencil is WAAAY expensive if you buy it but don’t use it that much.

Must-have for the Pencil

If you have an Apple Pencil for your iPad, you need this. On the regular glass screen, I found it challenging to write legibly. With Paperlike, my handwriting is almost as clear as on paper, and I find myself less tired after writing. I too balked at the price, but trust me, it’s worth it.

How does it work?

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

But the 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.
