Using A Stylus with a Photodon Screen Protector

May 26, 2017 | By Jolynn Paige

Whether you use a drawing tablet for work or for play, a stylus may cause damage to your screen.  Photodon carries several popular screen protectors for drawing tablets, which not only help protect your investment but can enhance your drawing experience.  In fact, we’ve had many customers tell us that they love their tablet even more with one of Photodon’s screen protectors installed.

While so much depends on personal preference and drawing habits, here is some information based on customer feedback we’ve received to help determine which film type might work best for you.

6HS6HS — Clean Glide, Extra Protection

A heavy-duty screen protector can be a lifesaver for designers and artists with a heavy stylus touch.  If you tend to press hard on your stylus while drawing or if you use an extra fine nib, the most scratch resistant film Photodon carries is called 6HS. When used with our Photodon Film Conditioner, not only will you experience a smooth glide while drawing, but you will also be getting scratch resistance that is better than factory-installed screens  This protector will be your best defense again a blunt force impact.  Should a worse case scenario occur and the screen breaks, a silver lining might be that the glass will not scatter because our 6HS screen protector will hold the pieces together.

Please note: The Photodon Film Conditioner must be used with 6HS or the screen protector will scratch.

MXH — Anti-Glare, Paper-like Feel

Most drawing tablets have a glass surface, so users may experience glare from ambient light.  This, in turn, can lead to eye-strain and headaches. Glare on a drawing tablet can also mean a disruption in seeing a clear screen image.  Many of our product reviewers report that the MXH has a paper-like feel, which they say gives them a better stylus glide on their screen surface than the factory-installed surface.  MXH is Photodon’s most popular film type for our tablet users.

MXO IconMXO — Complete Clarity, Smoother Surface

Photodon’s Touché brand MXO is perfectly clear and has ease of cleaning properties.  It is different from our 6HS in that it is less expensive and it does not have to be used with the Photodon Film Conditioner.  It is not as tough a film as the 6HS but is still a very high-quality film.

Buy a Build Your Own Sample Pack to Try Before You BuyPicture of Photodon Sample Pack

Photodon’s overall recommendation is that you try out a sample of our screen protectors before you make an investment because choosing a screen protector is a matter of personal preference.  That is why we offer sample packs, which include a coupon towards the purchase of your screen protector once you decide for yourself which one is right for you.

A Large Selection and Free Custom Cutting

Photodon carries a large number of screen protectors for brands such as Wacom, Huion, Ugee, XP-Pen Artist, HP Spectre, the Samsung Galaxy, and the Microsoft Surface Pro.  If you don’t find a screen protector for your drawing tablet on our website, we will custom cut one for you at no additional charge.
