When it comes to our art and lettering we want our final piece to look GREAT. But sometimes in the process of making it we make a mistake or our kids take a pen to it and make some marks. Well have no fear, Photoshop is here.
I love me some Apple products, I have quite a few, so of course I was very intrigued when the pro came out with the Apple pencil, but of course it comes at a hefty price. And the first year I just could’t justify spending that much money on “a toy”.
Little did I know, this thing turned into my business MUST HAVE.
Now on SKILLSHARE! Wohoo!
Are you ready to start making money with your lettering?
The starving artist mentality is dying off, now with the rise of the internet and online shopping even a hobbyist like you can make some extra income, heck, you can even start a whole lettering business right from the comfort of your own home. It's what I did.
Here are a couple ways to look at it, you can either custom make each piece or you can make it once, digitize it, and sell prints, mugs, apparel, and much much more.
If you think I edit my Instagram photos in Photoshop you're crazy. Lol!
I actually discovered this awesome app called Snapseed a while ago and use that 90% of the time. Because 90% of the time, I take photos with my phone.
It would take so long to upload the photo to my computer, edit in Photoshop, save, export back to my phone and then into Instagram. I don't have all day for that, so editing on the phone it is.
Mocking up your lettering is a must if you wish to sell it, whether it’s a print or other product.

Watch this video tutorial, taken straight out of my course, and follow along.
