Here is what others have asked

What if I don’t have an iPad?

Then this isn’t the subscription for you quite yet! This is really designed to learn iPad lettering with the Procreate app.
You need an iPad Pro or the most recent iPad (6th Generation, 2018, etc), and Apple Pencil, and the Procreate application. The Procreate application will work on any iPad and Procreate Pocket application will work on the iPhone BUT to get the best results, you do need one of the iPads listed above.

What if I’m a total beginner, is this for me?

Yes! TLL Handpicked is designed for the letterer who needs to nail the basics of iPad lettering AND the iPad letterer who is interested in just a few new resources monthly at an affordable price. I can’t wait for you to get started.

If you are a total beginner, I recommend starting with the iPad Lettering Foundations course included in your membership!

How do I access the resources?

You’ll have access to a members-only section on the website where you can download your content.

What's the difference between the Handpicked and Unlimited memberships?

I surveyed you guys and the biggest theme was that you were all on a budget. The iPad was an investment. I wanted to find a way to get you more of my resources for a reasonable cost. That is why the Handpicked membership is priced low. If you want access to all of my resources and unlimited downloads, you'll want to try out the Unlimited membership.

What does project-based mean?

You’ll get a new project each month. It might be how to practice a new coloring technique, how to create watercolor on the iPad, flourishing basics, how to re-create one entire lettering piece, etc.

I don’t think I have time for this??

That's why there is only one lesson per month! So you have plenty of time to access your lessons. Plus, the lessons don't expire so you'll be able to come back to them whenever you need to.

Do you offer refunds?

You can cancel your membership at any time with the click of a button. No refunds are given for parts of months, but you won’t be charged for any future months.

If I cancel, how long will I have access to my account

For exactly one month after your cancellation date. For example, if you cancel on August 1st, you'll have access until the following September 1st.

How often is new content added?

Monthly for both TLLH and TLLU but TLLU gets new resources not associated with the project of the month. This might be a ton of new brushes or a brushset, a new lettering guide, any new color palettes and so much more.

TLLH gets new content on the first of every month with the project of the month only.

TLLU gets new content on the first of every month from the project of the month PLUS anything new Hewitt Avenue has created.

I have more questions, how can I get in touch?

And just who am I?

I’m Sarah and I’m a lettering artist, coffee-lover, and my obsession is teaching others how to make a living doing what they love. I purchased the very first iPad Pro back 2016 and it quickly became my favorite lettering tool.

Your requests for lettering resources handpicked by me that are high quality and but affordable is what prompted the creation of TLL.

It is my sincere hope that TLL makes lettering even more fun by becoming your go-to for resources and inspiration.

Testimonials

I was stuck in a rut with my style and so I was looking to improve my style and learn new ways of doing things in general. I’ve only started with the library but even in one day it has been so useful already. The practice sheets are so helpful to help learn a style!

After just one month, I can already tell how my lettering has gotten more consistent since joining The Lettering Library. I'm a believer!
