Pencil is the fastest and most expressive way to get your ideas into the Paper by FiftyThree app.

Think with your hands

Pencil is the most natural and expressive tool for getting ideas on Paper. Rest your hand on the screen and draw freely with best-in-class adaptive palm rejection. Blend with your fingers. Flip Pencil over to erase. Thin as a real pencil, with internally balanced components that feel right in your hand. The Walnut model is milled from a single piece of sustainably-harvested, premium walnut. Each Walnut Pencil has a unique grain and tone. Pencil puts creative possibility in your hands.

Made for Paper

Pencil was made to work beautifully with the Paper by FiftyThree app for iPad (available for free in the Apple App Store). Paper was designed from the ground up for touch and creation on the go. It keeps you in the flow with no fussy buttons, settings or other distractions. Paper works the way you think, like a familiar notebook or journal. Have all of your ideas with you in one place.

Free tools

Five essential tools optimised for the creative process - Sketch, Outline, Write, Color, and Mix Color. Try all of these tools for free while using Pencil in the Paper app.

Palm rejection

Our adaptive palm rejection instantly knows whether it’s your hand or Pencil touching the page. Rest your hand on the screen, write from any angle. No calibration or setup. You’ll forget you’re creating on a tablet.

Power it up

Under normal use, you won’t need to recharge Pencil for about a month. The battery can be slid out and recharged on any standard USB port in under 90 minutes.


Get hands-on with your ideas. Pencil takes care of the lines so you can use your finger to smooth rough edges and blend colours directly on the page. Create beautiful colour transitions for charts, skies, and shadows.

Kiss to Pair

Bluetooth connection as it should be: no settings menus, no confusing pairing rituals. Just press Pencil’s tip to the screen. Clear, stable, simple; easy as falling in love.


Be bold and make mistakes. Pencil’s unique built-in eraser lets you precisely carve away to get at what’s essential. No need to switch tools, just flip Pencil to erase.

Plays nicely with others

Pencil requires an iPad with Retina display, or an iPad Mini (iPad generation 3 or 4, iPad Air, both iPad Mini models). Palm Rejection, Erase, and Blend work only with Paper, but Pencil also works well as a non-connected stylus in any other app and on any touchscreen device. We do not recommend the use of screen protectors while using Pencil.

Colour Name: Graphite Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is an incredibly beautiful piece of design. Right down to the piece of cardboard holding the important interior bits.

Lovely to hold in the hand - ended up holding it more like charcoal or a brush.

This was pretty much a first 'drawing/painting' stylus. Had one before on the Galaxy Note and that was used more for diagrams and writing and was a great deal more onerous to use.

Very intuitive to use and simple to set up. In many ways it behaves like a real pencil - drawing at one end and rubbing out at the other.

Loved the features in the app that works with it. Was incredibly impressed with how some of my doodles ended up almost looking like art.

There are a couple of nibs for different stroke thickness.
Totally brilliant is being able to rest your hand on the screen and it not mark.
The ability to send and share stuff really easily - already sent a couple of personalised thank you notes and maybe some Christmas cards a little later on this year
The ability to erase stuff by turning the pencil up side down.
Capability to do a reasonably detailed sketch of a room or garden and annotate it.

Oh and it works in other apps but really and truly to get the best out of it use the Paper 53 app.

So why not 5 stars
Well storage a bit of a problem. My ipad cover, the one with the key board does not have a place for a stylus and imagine the stylus will get lost in the bottom of a bag.
It is pretty expensive compared with other stuff out there,
Haven;t quite worked out where you get the replacement nibs from, am told they are on Amazon but cannot see them.....

Having said all that would I buy it as a gift or for myself. Yes for sure as a gift as it is beautiful, fun and useful. It really is a lovely thing to use.

When it works it's ok. I had trouble with the first tip after about one hour's use, so I'm on the included replacement. Then there were problems with the blend finger action, which was blending when it was supposed to be drawing. I turned that feature off to overcome that problem.

Now the erase function from the non-drawing tip has stopped working, after about five hours use. Now it's not much better than a simple dumb stylus. To be honest, I'm very disappointed.

Colour Name: Walnut Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I had never heard of the Paper53 app before this came up for me to try for free, however i have an iPad Air so thought id give it a go, plus i had nowhere to go over the bank holiday weekend.

I found it very easy to use, the stylus itself is very large, but is so smooth, you almost forget that its genuine wood.

It is very comfortable to hold in the hand and super easy to pair to the device, you just touch the screen, a doddle right !!

Anyway, the greatest thing about this is that anyone can use it, whether you are an artist or not, i am not, i love taking pictures, but drawing is not my forte, however i drew a very nice bowl of fruit as a practice run in the charcoal effect which took me about 5 hours to perfect, but when i tried to colour it in, i ruined it. Lesson learned there lol

My mum had a go, and she is slightly more talented than me and she had a great laugh for 3 hours, in fact i had trouble getting the thing back off her.

Sunday i spent almost an entire day drawing my fantasy house, im no architect but i was most impressed with how it came out.

I have not experienced any technical issues so far and i have found the movements fluid and easy. I have a screen protector on my iPad and i have not found any restrictions in movement on the pencil as yet, the instructions tell you not to use one, but i have not come across any problems, i guess it all depends on how thick the protector is.

It is slightly expensive, but it gives you thousands of hours of fun.

I personally loved it, it has become my new favourite way of chilling out.

Update4 : Apparently an app called Noteself supports Pencil 53 , as I don't own the app I can't comment on how well it works.( Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus also supported)

Update3 : Procreate also supports Pencil 53 ( unless they decide to create their own hardware), works well but not as well as the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus.

Update2 : Added a star , since my review . Still use my other Bluetooth pen more(in other Apps) but this does work so well in the Paper 53 App.

Update1 : Pencil 53 Replacement Tips and Eraser are far too expensive for me.


Works nicely with in the Paper 53 App, you could use it as a normal stylus outside of the App but I wouldn't as the cost of replacing the nibs will likely be quite high.( Would be nice to how much are the replacement nibs going to cost, they don't have them on Amazon UK yet)

Build quality is good. Looks and feels nice to use.

Would be nice if they included a carry case/ pouch ( for the price )

If you use the App often then it might be something to consider, there are other Bluetooth pens available that work in multiple Apps. Paper 53 don't plan on adding compatibility with for other products except for the Pogo which was already implemented.

So essentially it's a gadget and unless you actively use Paper 53 I would not recommend it as it's pricey and limited (at this point anyway) to the App Paper 53.

To Sum Up

If you use Paper 53 and absolutely must have it , then you might find it useful.

If you use other Note Taking / Drawing Apps then best to move on and find another product.(e.g Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus )

Only 3 stars as it's expensive for what it is.
