What Size StandStand Should You Order?

So, you wanna get a StandStand, but you’re not sure what size is right for you? Well, you’ve found the right spot to figure it all out!

Standing Desk HeightStandStand comes in four heights: 9, 12, 14, and 16 inches. The perfect height for you is one that ensures your laptop’s keyboard is at or slightly below elbow height, as illustrated to the left.

StandStand is not adjustable, but you can buy the size that fits you (like a t-shirt!). Almost all tables and desks come in a standard height of 29-30 inches. So, no matter where you go, StandStand will likely be just about the same height from spot to spot once placed on top of a standard desk or table.
