How to switch

As an individual designer, how you switch will depend on whether or not you already have a Sketch Account. If you do, any documents and Libraries that you store in your Personal Workspace will automatically appear in your new Workspace when you switch. If not, you can simply start a 30-day free trial and create a Workspace instantly.

As a team, you’ll need to switch the entire team to a subscription at once to benefit from a shared Workspace. A Workspace centralizes the company’s billing and user management, and is a shared space to store and collaborate on documents, Libraries and Design Systems.

Once you’ve created your Workspace, you can exchange any active license you have for credit towards your subscription. If you work with others, you can also invite them to become Editors in your Workspace and exchange any licenses they have for credit, too.

I’m an individual designer

Sign in with your Sketch Account or create a new one for free. This account will replace your old license key as the way to authenticate the Mac app.

If you created a new account, we’ll automatically create a Workspace for you. Simply sign into the Mac app and web app using your new account to get started. All new or upgraded Workspaces start with a 30-day free trial.

I’m part of a team

If you are part of a team of designers, your company probably uses a single license key for the whole team. Rather than upgrade yourself, you should ask your company to set up a subscription for the entire team.

Check out our documentation for tips and best practices to exchange a large number of licenses or merge everyone’s uploads into a single Workspace.

Get credit for your license

If you have an active license, you can exchange it for credit towards your subscription after you have created your Workspace. You’ll get $9 in credit per month you have left, for each device. Use to simulator below to verify if you have credit left on your license — or read more about exchanging legacy licenses for credit here.
