A versatile workspace — at your desk or on the go!

The Darkboard iPad drawing stand 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.

In Your Lap

Use your Darkboard on its own to rest comfortably in your lap. Great for drawing on the couch or in bed!

An iPad stand designed for drawing and notetaking


No more hand cramps! Darkboard mimics steering wheel ergonomics to minimize fatigue during long drawing sessions.


Darkboard has three setup options: Use the Foldable Stand for the Easel or Vertical setup, or use it solo on your lap!


Darkboard weighs less than the box it’s shipped in! It’s rigid enough to provide support and durability, while maintaining a lightweight profile.


The protective iPad cradle is made of polycarbonate, one of the strongest plastics available. Your iPad fits snuggly in the cradle so it won’t fall out.

Take the pain out of drawing

Crafted from Leatherfoam Cushion: Darkboard is made from premium EVA that balances sturdy rigidity with supportive cushion. It’s the same material used in high-performance sports equipment.

Grippy surface texture: The subtle grainy texture gives a comfortable grip while you’re seated in place or on the move.

Ergonomic grooved handles: Angular grooves closely mimic the ergonomics of steering wheels designed to minimize fatigue during long drawing sessions.

Happy with my purchase

This darkboard is conformed to the description and is really useful when drawing on the iPad for long hours each day. I also like it to watch TV and series as I find the black border help me to focus on the screen. The stand is also quite useful and light. The only minor disagreement is the angle of the iPad when put on the stand to watch TV. I find it too vertical and I have to add a book underneath it to add some angle. But overall it is a great purchase. And with the taxes added at checkout (for Europe) I was pleased to not have an expensive surprise at delivery time.


I love this product. It makes it so easy to draw by adding the extra space. The stand is wicked it holds to the board great and the carrying case is super helpful. Would 100% recommend. I use mine every day. My iPad never comes out of it.

Such a game changer!

The delivery to Europe was certainly quick and the quality feels premium, really love the versatility it gives as now I can draw while standing and don't destroy my lumbar zone for sitting all day haha.

Couple of things I'd love to see for a 2nd version:
- A cut out for the iPad to "breath"
Summer is getting closer and closer and I'm afraid my iPad would overheat due to being trapped on such a small space, fortunately I don't use devices while charging so this might mitigate the heat issue.

- Something else to hold the iPad
Not a fan of pushing the device nor removing it from the DarkBoard, the built-in case is a bit too tight for my liking. Maybe some clip things or a magnetic case to hold the iPad would solve my issue with the board.

- A way to cover the cable notch
A notch similar to that one board made out of wood I've seen online combined with a slider door thing would be golden, as it covers a possible hole for your hand to get stuck and don't bend the cable too aggressively.

Love this thing!

I compared the darkboard to sketchboard pro and decided to go with Darkboard because it was significantly lighter. I am so glad I did - my inte r was to use it mostly for working on my lap, but the included stand has been great for using the iPad in display mode, AND I love the neoprene carrying case, it’s so slick and easy to use I take the whole thing to the coffee shop and it’s so comfortable to work with the board propped on my lap against the table. Super happy with this purchase!!

Would recommend using the darkboard for artwork.
