Ultralight ergonomic drawing stand for iPad

where versatility meets comfort

Darkboard brings versatility to your workspace — whether that’s at your desk or on the go! With the included Stand, Darkboard accommodates three different setups:

Easel Setup

Perfect for drawing or writing, this setup lays your Darkboard at a comfortable 30-degree angle.

Vertical Setup

Flip your Stand around to set up your Darkboard in a vertical, desktop-like position. This is great for using your iPad as a primary or secondary monitor while working.
