"Super high-quality brushes that finally allow me to get the effects that I want in my drawings. I've been looking for brushes like these for years. Thank you so much!" Betsy - Hand Lettering Artist


Do you love hand lettering?

Imagine having a set of brushes that created strokes and textures just like your favorite pencils, pens, calligraphy pens, shaders and more. Each stroke carefully calibrated to feel and look just like real media.

Each of the 67 brushes in this pack will do just that. We've had customers write us and tell us that you could pick any brush in this pack and, by itself, it would be worth the cost of the whole pack!


The brushes are very convincing and provide dynamic, organic edges. I feel like brush tools are a step up from other more standard brushes listed on this site.

Jarod H - Graphic Designer

Love classical, whimsical hand lettering (like the preview images)? You'll find every type of brush imaginable including pencils, pens, calligraphy pens, markers, shaders, magic cross hatchers, microns, and more.

Do you love calligraphy? The way the calligraphy brushes flow and respond to pressure will make you wonder what you ever did without it.

Love traditional sign painting work? The Texture Shader Extra Dark will give help you build out your letters (and give you that subtle grit your work needs)

Do you mix illustration with lettering? This pack includes everything from sketching pencils, to pens, to conte and markets. You could literally illustrate a full-color book with this pack!

Do you love to just zen out and sketch on your tablet? We've got 25 pencils that will make it a dream (2H, 4H, 2B, 4B, shaders)

Are you a texture fanatic? Then this is your lucky day! We have gritty filler brushes, perfectly textured markers, and a set of see-it-to-believe-it cross hatching brushes (they literally do the cross hatching for you)


I absolutely love this toolkit! I typically do everything by hand because I haven't found a brush pack that can get me the authenticity I'm after, but this does the job! Thanks for a great product!

Michelle Albert - Illustrator

Client Ready PSD Files (So You Can Reverse Engineer a Pro's Work

If you're like me you learn by doing. Opening up files, tinkering, seeing how everything is put together. That's why we've included 4 Photoshop files you can open up and explore. They're the original files for some of the artwork you see in the preview images (.psd format).

Time Lapse Videos

Seeing how other designers work is one of the best ways to up your game fast. So we've provided time lapse videos of Shauna creating her work from scratch.

Shauna has worked with clients including Harper Collins, Fortune, International Delight, Harpers, Scholastic, Public, Wall Street Journal and tons more. Plus, she's the co-author of Creative Lettering & Beyond – one of the best-selling hand lettering books written in the past few years.

What software does this set work with?

Photoshop CS4 and above. The set consist of brush tool presets, videos, PSD files (to see how a professional works), and reference sheets. These brushes do NOT work any Affinity Designer.

What are brush tool presets?

Brush tool presets are like Photoshop brushes with super powers. They're pressure sensitive and feel almost exactly like real media brushes. The texture, shade, stroke width, and other features will change with the pressure and angle of your pen on a tablet.

How do I install brush tool presets?

It's just as easy as installing regular Photoshop brushes. Just a little different. We've included a simple one page instruction sheet in the pack that shows you exactly how to do it. Also, we just wrote a blog post "How to Install Photoshop .tpl files"

Does this pack include fonts?

No. This pack is not fonts that look like hand lettering. These are real professional made Photoshop tools for illustrators and designers that want to create their own hand lettering work.

How good is the quality of these brushes?

These brushes were made by Shauna Lynn Panczyszyn, a professional hand lettering artist. She uses these in her own work for clients like Harper Collins, Scholastic, Fortune, Wall Street Journal, and International Delights. She's also co-authored of the most popular hand lettering books available.

So the quality of these brushes are amazing. They're ideal quality for even the most demand project.
