FiftyThree announces gold version of their Pencil stylus

FiftyThree, developer behind popular iPad drawing app Paper, has announced Pencil Gold, a gold version of their Pencil stylus. Pencil Gold is made of anodized and brushed aluminum, and the new color is meant to compliment the gold versions of Apple's latest tablets, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3.

The gold version is available for pre-order now from FiftyThree's shop with a price of $59.95. FiftyThree says that the Pencil Gold will start shipping on Feb. 3, 2015. Pencil is already available in Graphite for $49.95 and in Walnut for $59.95, the same price as Pencil Gold. The Walnut Pencil also comes with a magnetic strip that will attach to your Smart Cover.

FiftyThree will also be holding a giveaway contest for the Pencil Gold. For ten days between Jan. 31 and Feb. 9, members of FiftyThree's Mix community will be able to enter to win a Pencil Gold each day by remixing the Pencil image that the company has placed there.
