Basic technique is unique

Great course. It is unique and easy to learn but it requires a lot of practice....

The most thorough and informative handlettering class ever!

I have always wanted to learn to hand-letter like a pro, but I could never quite figure out the techniques to get it right. My handwriting has never been great, especially cursive, but within just a few lessons I was swooping and swirling my pen like a pro! Jocie broke it down in simple but super informative steps to help me see where I am doing it wrong. On top of teaching the actual hand-lettering technique, this course is chock FULL of printables that even includes vinyl cutouts I can use on my cutting machine! Woot! In addition to all that, there is an excellent tutorial on how to use an Apple pen and the iPad to create easy jpeg and pdf graphics for my blog! I was not expecting such a detail instruction manual on that, but I am so excited to share my new hobby on instagram. This was completely fabulous course. I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever wanted to learn the art of hand-lettering! Beth Bryan www.unskinnyboppy.com

Turning life into art!

by Naomi Moseley
Wow! This course is INVALUABLE! I love to create beautiful things just for my own benefit, and I also love to create personalized gifts for family and friends. Letters have always been my weak point!!!! I cannot wait to put these skills into practice so I can grow in this new area. I seriously cannot believe how much better I already am just after practicing while following along with the videos! Jocie's tips and tricks make these beautiful creations possible for even the below average DIY-er (me)! The resource section with printable practice sheets is extremely useful and helpful. I can't wait to make a few small purchases so I can keep practicing wherever I go! Thank you for putting together such an amazing resource for such an affordable cost!!!!

Awesome Hand Lettering course; for even the Busiest of Girls!

by Jacque Knowlton
I love this course! I have been dying to try hand lettering for a long time but had ZERO time. Seriously, full time job, 3.5 yo, 1.5 yo, blog, husband who travels, special needs dog ... But I was so wrong. Jocie does a great job of going through each step of the process carefully and thoroughly. I love her gentle reminders that this might take some, for some of us, ahem me, to re-train our brains with how to complete the strokes. I can't believe how much better I am from the beginning to even now. The practice sheets are a total life/time saver! Another great thing about her course, how to incorporate your hand lettering into pretty much ALL THE THINGS! The project ideas are awesome! Oh and the fact that you can stop whenever you need to, pick back up, or even re-play sections is amazing. I can't wait to share this with my girlfriends and most likely also gifts for my favorite ladies!

Amazing! I never thought I could do beautiful hand lettering, but this course taught me how!

If I could give the course ten stars, I would! Jocie explains everything so clearly, and she has great tips and tricks for the common issues you might run into while learning how to do hand lettering. I love the practice sheets provided with the course, and all the little flourishes and extras are awesome! And I love the project ideas and tutorials too; I can't wait to turn my hand lettering into a tote bag!

It was amazing

by Chloe M
I made so much progress, while having fun and using up some free time. It was so easy to catch on to and it was explained so well. It was very well put together yet you had independence for what you could do.
