Update (1/24 9:00am): @ericmata75 is our winner, thank you to everyone for entering our giveaway!

The story goes, as told by co-founder Andrew Allen, that Paper by FiftyThree started out of a love for analog products. That four Microsoft colleagues turned friends with the resources of a Fortune 500 company found a greater passion in a pencil, scissors…and paper. Often Andew, Georg Petschnigg, Jonathan Harris and Julian Walker would sit down and discuss their ideas, talking about possibilities that bounced around in their heads. These brainstorming sessions would always be recorded on a scrap, or coffee filter, napkin or Moleskin, notably they weren’t writing in Word or the like – they were writing everything out.

The feeling of analog products, the feel of cutting paper or dragging a pencil across paper. How do they bring that feeling to a digital world? It was at that point, they bunkered down in a 5th floor New York apartment and set out to re-imagine digital design. They set out to make Paper. expand full story

Amazon has the Pencil by FiftyThree smart digital stylus for iPad for $39.95 shipped in black graphite aluminum and $49.95 shipped in Walnut. This represents a savings of up to 20% off the regular price, and matches our Black Friday mention. The Pencil by FiftyThree is rated 4.1/5 stars by over 600 Amazon users and was also one of our top holiday picks for this season.

Supported by a number of apps and updated frequently, Pencil by FiftyThree allows artists, designers, or just anybody to sketch and take hand written notes directly on an iPad. Along with eraser functionality on the back end, it features surface pressure, blending modes, and adaptive palm rejection technology to allow users to rest their hand on the display comfortably.

I’ve been using the Pencil by FiftyThree for about a month now and have really enjoyed its functionality. When accompanied with the Paper app for iOS the opportunities to create, design and draw feel endless. The feel of the stylus in combination with the tools in the app offer a realistic experience, especially seeing the ink and pencil combine on screen. It’s a nice update to a stylus market that lacks imagination and excitement.
