iPad Lettering Course FAQ
What do I need to do this course?
An iPad, a stylus (an Apple Pencil is ideal), and the Procreate App (you can purchase it for $12.99 in the App Store). You will buy the Procreate App on your own, as it is separate from the course. For more technical requirement details, read my blog post about iPad Lettering tools here.
What if I have a tablet that is NOT an iPad?
This course will be focusing specifically on iPads (not other types of android tablets) because the Procreate App only works on iPads. Procreate is the App that I get asked about the most so that is the focus of this course. I've had requests from some of you about learning lettering using different types of programs and tablets and that is something I hope to focus on in the future!
What if I have a stylus that is NOT an Apple Pencil?
You can still do this course! The only difference will be in how you thicken your downstrokes when lettering. The Apple Pencil responds to pressure, so you can thicken strokes like you would with a brush pen. With another stylus, you can use the faux calligraphy method where you go back and thicken your downstrokes manually.
What if I don't have time to do the course right away?
No worries! You get lifetime access to the course portal so you can log in and complete the course any time in the future. You can also watch it through as many times as you want and on as many different devices as you want.
