Inkling bridges the gap between traditional sketching and digital development. While you sketch on paper with a ballpoint pen, Inkling captures your sketches digitally, stroke by stroke.

Real ink with digital output

Inkling seamlessly converts your sketches, pressure-sensitive pen strokes and layers into vector or raster form for use in applications like Photoshop, Illustrator and SketchBook Pro.


Capture an idea from anywhere.


Sketch it on paper while Inkling records it digitally.


Transfer your sketches to your computer in an instant.

Pick your paper.

Use Inkling with your favorite sketchbook or standard-size paper, it works with any size up to A4.

Store and transfer
files in a snap.

Easily transfer files and charge Inkling with a simple USB connection. You can even store hundreds of high-resolution sketches on the receiver before transferring them to your computer.

Create layers while you sketch

Inkling even lets you create digital layers while you sketch on paper with the simple press of a button.
