    LIKE A REAL PENCIL

    The ALUM Case is a hexagonal, solid aluminum case for the Apple Pencil crafted to resemble the graphite pencils that we know and love. We chose aluminum because it’s strong and light. The hexagonal shape gives support to your hand when you pick it up and keeps it from rolling away when you put it down. It’s perfect for keeping your Apple Pencil protected and pristine while still allowing you to write and draw effortlessly.

    THE BEAUTY OF ALUMINUM

    We love the use of aluminum in Apple products and we wanted to bring the same look and feel to the Apple Pencil.
    We’ll craft the ALUM Case from solid, high quality, 6000 series aluminum stock that will undergo an anodization process to ensure that the surface is resistant to scratches and other corrosive elements (sweat!). Anodization will also allow us to offer the ALUM in silver, grey and gold so you’ll be able to match your ALUM Case with your iPad Pro.

    HIGH PRECISION MANUFACTURING

    CNC machining allows us to fabricate the ALUM Case to tightly specified tolerances, allowing the Pencil a snug fit, while also keeping easy it to slip on and off.
    Each piece is individually turned in a CNC lathe before sand blasting. During the sandblasting process, special care will be taken to smooth out the interior barrel surfaces to make sure it’s free from burrs and other imperfections.
    The taper of the ALUM Case will be hand polished to a mirror finish before anodizing for protection and color. We think the polished metal luster contrasts nicely against the matte finish of the barrel.
    The fitment of end cap of the ALUM is designed with rubber o-rings so it remains tight and secure when in place while remaining easy to remove with a simple twist and tug. The ALUM logo is laser etched onto the side and stamped onto the end of the cap.

    Laser Etched Name

    Personalize your ALUM Case with our custom laser etching option. We looked at the lead times and logistics involved in etching individual ALUM Cases and found it to be a nice, workable option to be able to offer our supporters. Just select the “Laser Etching” option on the right and we’ll zap your name (or anything you want within 10 alphanumeric characters!) onto the end cap (it’ll be on the face opposite that of the ALUM logo). We’ll send out a survey to everyone who picked this option at the conclusion of the campaign to get individual details.
