FAQs

  • Can I use the pencil tips without the screen protector? → The ballpoint pencil tip is designed to be used with the screen protector to create a realistic drawing experience. When interecting with the native iPad screen, we'd recommend using the standard Apple Pencil tip for the best experience. We don't recommend using the ballpoint tip without the screen protector.  
  • Can I use the Rock Paper Pencil screen protector if I have a case with a lip, bumper, or 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!
  • Will I still be able to use the touch screen of my iPad with the screen protector installed? → Yes. Your iPad will still recognize inputs from your fingers during use. You’ll be able to interact with your touchscreen and use features like the on-screen keyboard while the screen protector is attached.
  • 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. Doing so may prevent your iPad from detecting gestures and strokes, leading to a reduction in precision during use.

the perfect pair

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

Rock Paper Pencil isn't just one thing. It's two meticulously engineered components working in perfect harmony:

Nano-texture screen protector. Our screen protector is infused with a microscopic texture that mimics the “tooth” of fine-grain paper to provide the perfect amount of friction for precise control.

Precision-engineered ballpoint tip. Our custom Apple Pencil tip works exclusively with our unique screen protector and delivers a subtle “bite” with every stroke to create a familiar and satisfying drawing experience.

Together, they create the most realistic pen-on-paper feeling for iPad.


the most advanced (and removable) paper-feel screen protector ever




We've taken a scientific approach to create a "just like paper" surface that elevates your entire drawing experience.

✔️ NanoCling application. Securely bond your screen protector to your iPad using static electricity. It’s stronger than magnets, non-adhesive, and leaves no residue when removed.

✔️Matte Finish. The nano-texture surface provides a subtle grip, giving you enhanced control and improved precision while you draw and write.

✔️ Removable and Reusable. Movie time? Peel it off. Sketch time? Snap it back on. Your screen protector can be removed and reused in seconds. Switch between paper-feel and crystal clear in seconds.

a fine-point apple pencil tip that redefines digital drawing


Enjoy unparalleled precision and control that feels as natural as a pen on paper.

✔️ 0.7mm ballpoint tip. The optimal size for accuracy and control, mirroring the familiar feel of a ballpoint pen.

✔️ Premium wear-resistant coating. Built from a copper-alloy core + palladium coating. Built to last, even with daily use.

✔️ Pinpoint accuracy. Draw, sketch, and write with confidence. Unlock a new level of creative expression with a pencil tip that faithfully recreates every line and stroke.

CANT GET ENOUGH

Bought one for myself and then the nibs got damaged and I couldn’t find that version of the nib online, and since my brother tried it he loved it too so I got him one and took his nibs
It’s so smooth
So paper
Very worth it as a procreate user

Excellent writing experience for iPad

I bought the screen protector and tips for the new iPad Air M2 with Pencil Pro. I always disliked the writing experience on my old iPad. Using the iPad was very convenient, but the glass-like feel was awful. When I upgraded the iPad, I decided to try the Astropad. I chose Astropad over competitors because of the ease of application and the ability to remove and replace the screen protector as needed. The writing experience now is excellent. I had no issues installing the tips or the protector. My favorite pencil setting is the fountain pen for an awesome writing experience. One thing to be aware of is that some cases may interfere with the placement of the protector. I had to play around with my case and protector (the order in which I placed them on my iPad), but once I figured that out, I was very pleased. I wish I had another one for my old iPad too!

Best Writing and Drawing Feeling

I'm very impressed from the Astropad Rock Paper. It#s very easy to attache without bubbles. With the special tips the feeling of writing is similar to the real good E-Notes like Boox or Remarakble.
Best System I tried!

Darkboard and Rock Paper Scissors

I recently purchased a new iPad Pro and I was concerned that it might not fit the original Darkboard, but it does fit perfectly, however I had to re purchase Rock Paper Scissors because of the new camera placement.
