Inkling. The designer’s tool on the go.

Do you start your artwork with pen and paper? But at the same time regret that your work is stuck on paper until you have scanned the image? Then Inkling is an indispensable tool for you. This digital sketch pen allows you to sketch with a real ballpoint pen on any paper. While you are drawing, all strokes are recorded electronically which can then be imported as raster or vector artwork in to your preferred graphics application for further editing. With just one button click you can record layers, for instance, to separate preparatory and final drawings. These layers are then retained after import.

In a nutshell, Inkling enables you to start off your artwork the traditional way, while making the first step of your digital workflow simultaneously – wherever you are.
