FAQs

  • Can I use the pencil tips without the screen protector? → ⚠️ We don’t recommend using the ballpoint Pencil tip without the screen protector.
  • Can I use the Rock Paper Pencil screen protector if I have a case with a raised edge? → While we haven't been able to test every iPad case out there, we have found that our screen protector works with cases that have a raised edge.
  • Is Rock Paper Pencil compatible with a Smart Keyboard? → Yes, Rock Paper Pencil and the Smart Keyboard can be used together! In fact, Astropad's CEO uses Rock Paper Pencil with his Smart Keyboard every day.
  • Will I still be able to use the touch screen of my iPad with the screen protector installed? → While the screen protector is textured, the texture will not impede the normal use of your touch screen and functions like your iPad's on-screen keyboard.
  • Can I use Rock Paper Pencil simultaneously with another screen protector? → We do not recommend using the Rock Paper Pencil screen protector on top of another screen protector. Doubling up on screen protectors may inhibit Apple Pencil precision, gesture detection, and screen clarity.

The Most Realistic Pen-on-Paper Feel for iPad

Unlike other products that only swap the Pencil tip or the screen texture, we’ve crafted unmatched realism by combining a custom Apple Pencil tip and a precisely engineered screen protector.


reusable, paper-feel screen protector


The same great texture of other paper-feel screen protectors (with MUCH easier installation).

✔️ NanoCling Border: Securely bonds your screen protector to your iPad using static cling.

✔️ Matte Finish: Made with nano-texture technology to mimic the texture of paper and minimize glare.

Meticulously Designed for Artists and Notetakers

Sketch, Paint, Draw

Write, Annotate, Notetake

 

Ditch the slip: On its own, the iPad’s glass screen is a slippery surface that creates an inconsistent drag on your Apple Pencil.

Smoother, more precise strokes: Rock Paper Pencil adds subtle friction between your screen and Pencil tip, giving you more control with each stroke output.

Digital Art is in our DNA

From the makers of Astropad Studio and Darkboard

For 10 years, we’ve worked closely with hundreds of thousands of digital artists who use the iPad in their drawing workflows.

What we’ve learned? Precision is everything. We know that no two artists work alike — so the ability to precisely control every element of the drawing experience is key. That’s why we built Rock Paper Pencil.

Rock Paper Pencil allows smoother, more precise Pencil strokes on the iPad.

Best screen product on the market

I have tried at least 5 or 6 different screen protectors and various Apple Pencil tips over the years. Either they are impossible to apply or don’t work at all as expected. For those looking for a “paper type” writing feel, ease of installation, ease of use, the Rock Paper Pencil hits it out of the park.

What an Experience

This may not be exactly pen and paper. But it’s pretty close honestly. The fact it “floats” slightly makes it feel like a pad of paper. The tips make a huge difference and much to my excitement, does not scratch the screen up like I worried about. Its packaging is very beautiful. It is matte but does not affect visibility much and can be removed (and stored in included sleeve). The only problems I had was it was expensive for a screen protector (if they’re competing with Paperlike) Also, a cleaning kit would be a great addition to an already painless install. They do give you two tips but you shouldn’t need them they’re long lasting. Would recommend highly.

Rock Paper Pencil Screen Protector V2

I absolutely love this screen protector. I had problems with the V1 screen protector within the first 6 months of use and the company replaced it with the V2 screen protector. Their customer service was amazing and it is great when companies follow through on their warranties and back their products. I love the new V2 screen protector. The pencil tip is more durable and the screen protector is smooth around the edges. It feels and sounds like paper and I’m obsessed. So worth the money!

Life Changing

i was on the hunt for a small digital device to use a notebook and bought an ipad mini. i never really got use to the frictionless tapping on the screen as i wrote and my handwriting was sloppier than traditional paper. i actually started looking into other devices, but they were all too big, so i decide to look into improving my experience with what i had — enter rock, paper, pencil. My writing has improved. . or gone back to normal, and i now enjoy my mini notebook experience and will start journaling again.
