  • Best Pen and Tablet for 26"+ monitor

    Hello everyone,

    So my mom is a graphic designer and she asked for a pen and tablet for her birthday. I have found a few good ones, but I read that you need to be careful when choosing one for a bigger monitor.

    What pen/tablet is best for a very large monitor? What should I look at when researching which one to buy for her?

    Thank you in advance!

    I have the Wacom Intuos 4 Large and it works great with my 27" monitor. I haven't tried others, so I can't comment on them.

      Oh wow. I was actually told that even the extra large might not be enough, but the if the large works then that is great! I was afraid my mom wouldn't enjoy trying to fit a huge tablet on her desk.

      Thank you very much!!

        It's really a preference thing, I use a small wacom (4"x6") on a 27" screen and I have no issues with it, in fact it replaced my mouse altogether. You have to consider desk real estate also.
        Design is not decoration.

          And handedness. I keep a mouse on my right, a tablet on my left, keyboard in the middle -- and I'm sinisterly clawed.

          Gotta say though, for drawing/painting work ... nothing beats actually drawing on a monitor screen (I now really love my old Toshiba tablet-pc!).

            I'd love to have an XL, but I don't have the room on my desk (or in my budget) for one.

              Among many other things, consider the color of your font.

              Helpful comments -- thanks to all of you. My advice to my friend was to try CC for the trial period, then decide on CC or version 6. A bit stubbornly (in my opinion) she is holding out for now and searching...

              Comment on Charge Tax on Top of Flat Rate?

              Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

              If you live in a place that requires that you collect sales tax on graphic design services, it really doesn't matter how you bill your clients as long as the tax is collected and paid. If you want to...

              I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

              Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....
