It's Got Legs (and It Knows How to Use Them!)
Work Anywhere with Pop Out Legs
The Sketchboard Pro features strong legs that easily fold out to create a comfortable 20-degree angled drawing surface. This allows you to have a drawing desk experience virtually anywhere in landscape or portrait orientation.
A Classic Tool Upgraded for the Digital Era
Bring Your Drawings to Life
Sketchboard Pro combines what you love about drawing on iPad with the traditional physical experience of making art. You are now able to use your full arm while drawing to achieve a more elegant, flowing look to your lines and bring your drawings to life.
A Surface You Can Skateboard On
Just Like Drawing on Paper
With the Sketchboard Pro, your iPad is nestled into a form-fitted cradle that creates a smooth surface for your hand to glide across. For the first time, this enables you to utilize the complete canvas when drawing on your iPad, rather than resting your hand on areas of the screen where you could be drawing.
Built for Artists by Artists
Designed to Support You
We created Sketchboard Pro at our own art studio, Braintreehouse, a little by accident and mostly out of necessity. We then spent over a year developing and testing the Sketchboard Pro with professional artists in an effort to refine its ergonomics.
Whether you're drawing at a desk, on a couch, or the kitchen table, Sketchboard Pro offers versatility, stability, and relief from discomfort and pain typically felt when drawing on a tablet for hours.
Keeping It 100
Charge While You Work
The charging port allows you to keep your iPad connected to power for those long work sprints that can be a massive drain on your battery.
A Stand That Goes Both Ways
Draw in Landscape or Portrait Orientation
For those times when you need a taller canvas, optional portrait legs fold out to give you a comfortable experience with support for both righties and lefties.
Sustainable for Your Future
Designed for Upgrades
Planning to upgrade your tablet in the future? No sweat! When you change tablet sizes, simply swap out the center of your Sketchboard Pro with one of our Upgrade Kits and you're good to go!
Get Up, Stand Up!
It's Also a Tabletop Easel
Whether you’re a portrait artist, caricaturist, or just taking the occasional video call, Sketchboard Pro has you covered with its ability to stand up tall!

Frequently Asked Questions
We'll continue to update these FAQs as we receive excellent feedback from our testers and our amazing supporters.
Number one, how dare you?
Right? We are just a studio of goofy artists after all. Who better to design a tool for artists?
Where is Sketchboard Pro available?
Sketchboard Pro can be purchased from our shop, on Amazon, and Etsy!
How much does it cost?
Retail price is $129 USD. We also offer an Artist Bundle that includes a Travel Bag and some other goodies. Both are available in our shop.
Do I need to remove my other case?
The Sketchboard Pro is designed to be the most seamless connection with your iPad. Other cases or skins applied to the back of your iPad do need to be removed before inserting the iPad into the Sketchboard Pro otherwise they may damage the Sketchboard.
What iPad models do you support?
The Sketchboard Pro supports over 30 iPad models including all iPads that support the Apple Pencil except for the iPad Mini.
Can I charge the iPad while using Sketchboard Pro?
Yep! You can charge while using the Sketchboard Pro thanks to a port for your charging cable on the underside! Charging is supported with Sketchboard Pro in standing and flat positions.
What about drawing in portrait orientation?
The Sketchboard Pro was designed to be easy to rotate and use in your lap, on a drawing desk, propped against a table edge, or on an easel. Additional portrait legs enable the Sketchboard Pro to stand in portrait orientation for righties and lefties.
How do the speakers sound while using Sketchboard?
The sound from the iPad speakers while installed in the Sketchboard Pro is just as terrific. There is only subtle decline in volume.
Can I still use the iPad camera?
Both front and back cameras can be used while the iPad is in the Sketchboard Pro.
Do you support other tablets like Microsoft Surface?
Not at this time, but we are open to supporting other tablets if there is demand. The Sketchboard Pro was born from necessity and since our studio uses iPads we developed for iPad first.
