Wacom are THE name in graphics tablets. The industry standard for more than a decade now, no other tablets come close.
We stock the popular Intuos Pro range including the new 2017 Paper Edition, which is the best when it comes to creative graphics tablets. The more basic tablets like the Bamboo and standard Intuos people tend to outgrow too quickly.
These tablets are beautifully designed and can really revolutionise how you approach your work.
See our guide in the right column to choosing the right size, but in short we recommed:
It really works - so much more refined that iPads and similar.
The new Pro Pen 2 has 8,192 discrete levels of pressure mean the tablet reflects much more accurately what you're actually trying to do. It recognises not just pressure but tilts too, so it's as close to real drawing as you can get! (Pro Pen 2 only available on Medium & Large Intuos Pro Tablets)
Both the Medium & Large Intuos Pro 2017 tablets come with a Paper Edition upgrade allowing you to work directly onto a paper surface, which then transforms your illustration into a digital work!
With integrated support for touch controls, like touch to zoom, navigate and rotate, your workflow speeds up dramatically as you you don't have to switch back to mouse or keyboard for common operations.
ExpressKeys and the TouchRing mean you have a whole bunch of fully customisable controls to store your favourite commands.
And of course you can have application specific settings.
Wireless is now included with all Intuos Pro models, so no cords to get in your way and mess with your drawing mojo.
You can store your settings in the Wacom Cloud and they can follow you from work to home and back again - means less setup work and perfect consistency!
Works with everything and the latest versions of your OS too. Vista+ for PC and 10.6.8+ for Mac.
If you're doing retouching, you probably move your wrist while you work - and you'll find working on the medium sized Wacom to be more comfortable
If you're originating new work (i.e. drawing) - you will most likely work with your wrist locked and pivoting with your elbow (this is how drawing classes teach you to draw, anyway!) - for this, the larger tablet is more comfortable.
You'd only choose the small tablets if you wanted an 'on the go' tablet - we think they're really not practical for serious work.
