Now is the Time to Learn Hand Lettering

Hand lettering is currently experiencing a massive resurgence. Over 675,000 people have read my introductory lettering guide in just the past few years. Since 2007, searches for “hand lettering” have increased 1000%.

It’s no surprise you’re here! Hand lettering is booming right now. Hand lettering is selling all kinds of products like prints and t-shirts and clients want it too.

As the world gets increasingly digital and automated, we find ourselves yearning for the hand-made and the authentic. We want to be reminded that there is a human with a soul behind the designs we see!

  • Companies know that people love hand lettering.
  • They want to use hand lettering to attract attention.
  • These companies need to hire you to create hand lettering.
  • You need to know how to approach pricing if you want to make money.

It’s completely transformed the way I work. Before this class I had no clue as to what I was doing. Now from completing the course I have structure, process and most importantly perspective and “know how”. Now I’m not worried if my pieces are going to turn out ok. I know they are thanks to the insight on what to practice.

There are specific and detailed instructions. The explanations were very clear and not over or under washed. Even the unfamiliar aspects are addressed in a manner that makes you feel comfortable rather then intimidated.

Nowadays it’s so hard to be in environments where you use your hands or a pencil. I for one never did much craft or art as a kid. When I wanted to learn hand lettering, for years I felt as though I missed out on having enough perspective to be able to draw. After this class, my confidence soared through the roof. Now I’m not afraid to draw lettering or anything for that matter.

I’ve gone through hundreds of emails from hand letterers like you sharing their biggest struggles, and as a result I’ve completely re-engineered the course. Learn Lettering 2.0 is tailored to the most important things you need to learn.

Join over 28,000 hand lettering artists in taking the all-new Learn Lettering Starter Class. It’s jam-packed with modules on typographic terms, deliberate practice, in-depth lessons on drawing letters, hand lettering digitization, and more.

The best part? I decided to do something radical: instead of selling the Starter Class for $99 (my original plan), I’m giving it away for FREE.

My hope is that you like it so much you’ll spread the word. Ready?

I was a little worried about the price because it was all the money I had saved up. However, it wasn’t until I saw the amount of quality material within the course that I realized I couldn’t have spent that money any better.

Learn Lettering has helped me tremendously by providing the educational background to improve my lettering, as well as a roadmap to grow my passion for lettering into a sustainable freelance business.

I would recommend this to anybody serious about making a living as a letterer. The amount of value in this course will pay for itself in the long run.

Stop Practicing the Slow Way

When I first got into hand lettering, there wasn’t very much out there in terms of hand lettering classes. I had to search all over the place and piece together information just to educate myself.

I didn’t know that I was practicing the slow way. I didn’t even know there was a right kind of practice to get better faster.

I don’t want it to be like that for you.

That’s why I created Learn Lettering to show you exactly how to practice, step-by-step so you don’t have to guess.

The Learn Lettering Master Class not only helped reinforce my hand lettering foundation, but it also gave me the knowledge and confidence to present myself as a true professional once the commission inquiries started rolling in. I love being able to determine whether or not my clients are a good fit for my process/values and develop trust from the very beginning. With this new approach, the clients I end up working with have been terrific, and I don’t lose sleep over the ones that go elsewhere because I know there would’ve been friction with the project.

I can’t express how much happier and more stress-free I am not having to work with clients where there isn’t mutual respect.

The biggest value I received from the class was seeing the design contract and learning how to properly use it after having a plain-english conversation with my clients focused around value. I had never used a contract before, nor had I ever priced my services on value (it was usually hourly), so it really propelled me to another level of professionalism.

I’ve seen huge results in my audience growth from applying Sean’s techniques and teachings. My Instagram account has grown from a modest 150 followers to over 3,000 in just the first year, and that number has more than doubled in just the past 3 months. This rapid audience growth has given me the confidence and affirmation to leave my full-time design job and run my own business from home.

I highly recommend Learn Lettering because it will equip you with the mindset, skills, knowledge, strategies, and confidence to be a sought-after lettering professional. But that’s honestly just scratching the surface; the seanwes podcast and Community are the perfect complements to skyrocketing your business professionalism to outer space.

You’re not just learning how to draw letters.

You’re getting a contextual education that equips you with the skills to create, and the business knowledge to succeed.

Techniques + Practical Application

Yes, the courses cover the many facets of a lettering artist’s workflow, including techniques for creating different styles of hand lettering and methods for producing deliverable vectors.

But here’s why Learn Lettering is unique:
I don’t merely impart tips and tricks—I show you how to make a living at lettering as a career.

I have 10 years of design and business experience. My podcast episodes on business, marketing, and design professionalism have been downloaded over a million times.

The business courses in the Master Class help you understand the how and the why behind lettering as a career. You’ll learn the skills you need and how to put them into practice with clients through comprehensive overviews of professional process and workflow.

I’m not a letterer by trade, so I wasn’t sure if Learn Lettering would be a wise investment. It felt like I needed to be 100% dedicated to pursuing lettering as a career in order to receive value.

I have a much deeper understanding of what to look for in letterforms and how to create them. It’s as if my eyes have been open to a new world.

Even more significantly for me, I have a much deeper understanding of how to run and maintain a professional design business.

The business section of the master class was well worth my entire investment. Sean’s transparency throughout that section of the class gave real insight into how a professional design process should be approached.

My business has grown significantly since applying Sean’s techniques, and I’m not even a letterer! From audience to pricing, I’ve seen astonishing results.

Just to give an example of what I mean by astonishing, my audience has grown by over 420% in less than a year!

I would highly recommend the class, even if you aren’t a letterer. Sean provides value at every turn and this is your opportunity to not only give back, but to gain an immense understanding of life-changing topics.

You’re investing in much more than a lettering class.

Bridging the Gap Between Art & Business

You are an artist. You have a creative spirit and a desire to create beautiful things. You make compelling art and you love captivating people with your work and sharing a message.

  • You know that your art has the power to sell, but you just don’t know where to start.
  • You didn’t go to school for business and what business you’ve picked up isn’t really relevant to the online world.

The Learn Lettering Master Class bridges the gap between lettering techniques and real-world application. You’ll learn the practical business knowledge you need to succeed as an artist.

You’ll get access to modules on finding clients that pay well, learning to communicate with clients to prevent problems, design contracts and licensing (with templates), selling physical products, pricing on value, and teaching hand lettering.

It’s rare for artists to be business-savvy and most business people aren’t artistically creative. Learn Lettering is a rare hybrid of art and business training that will help make you well-rounded and ready to attract the right kind of clients and price on value with confidence.

The class kickstarted my hand-lettering discipline and allowed me to take it more seriously with some structure to channel my enthusiasm. I have a much greater confidence about my understanding of not only lettering, but typography in general – which is, of course, a gigantic part of graphic and web design.

I appreciated the very solid and practical exercises that the class walks you through. No quick fixes, just expert advice that has to be followed up by practice. To know that you are practicing in the right direction helps you do it with confidence.

I’d recommend the class, and do, because I think connecting physically pen to paper is incredibly grounding and the class facilitates the process of the hand-lettering discipline with solid suggestions and demonstrated examples.

Based on all of Sean’s amazing work, track record and dedication to quality, I had no hesitation at all buying the Master Class. I got the notification to buy and I purchased it right away.

This class helped shape me as a professional hand lettering artist and separated me from the hobbyists. Since this class, I’ve gotten more client inquires, higher paying gigs and more respect from the lettering community as a result.

I like how Sean broke down the different styles of hand lettering and actually walked us through how to draw each style from memory. In addition to Sean’s hands-on tips, his advice on contracts and usage rights really helped me understand the industry in a way I never had before.

This class is digestible, value packed and most importantly entertaining. I never found my self scrubbing through videos or being bored. I watched every module from start to finish sometimes multiple times in the same day just to make sure I had a solid understanding of the material.
