Two years ago, I covered an interesting Kickstarter product for the iPad Pro called the Paperlike. It was a screen protector that made the iPad’s screen feel more textured like a piece of paper. I backed the Kickstarter and reviewed the product after it arrived a few months later. It made a big difference for me using my Apple Pencil, as the added texture made writing and controlling the Pencil easier. I liked it enough that I kept it on my 2017 iPad Pro until I sold it last Summer.

Back in April, I came across a Kickstarter for a product from Jan Sapper called the PaperLike that was aiming to fill an unaddressed niche for the iPad Pro- the lack of a textured surface for writing and drawing on the iPad Pro’s screen. I ended up backing it, and when I received the product in July, I promptly installed it and wrote a brief review. Other than a little difficulty in putting it on (no more than any other flexible film screen protector), I came away happy with my brief experience to that point.
Back in April, I wrote about a Kickstarter that I came across that I thought had real potential. Jan Sapper of Sapper Productions was proposing a screen protector for the iPad Pro that gives the screen more of a paper-like feel to make writing and drawing more comfortable with the Apple Pencil. I was immediately interested, and evidently I wasn’t the only one, because his Kickstarter campaign had already blown its initial funding goal away by the time I found it.
A recent Kickstarter campaign caught my eye that I thought might be of interest to several of our readers. The PaperLike screen cover from Jan Sapper is exactly what it sounds like- a simple screen protector-like cover for both models of iPad Pro. It is made of a proprietary film that gives the screen a feel closer to that of paper when using the Apple Pencil. It’s a very good idea that I was surprised to learn hasn’t really been addressed by any mainstream accessory manufacturers to this point.
