What you'll learn:

Knowing how to transform your ink & paper calligraphy to a print-ready digital graphic is an essential skill for expanding your calligraphy offerings to products and prints.

  • How to cleanly photograph your work if you don't have a scanner
  • How¬†Procreate fits into things (hint, you still have to digitize in Photoshop!)
  • Preserving the integrity of pointed pen hairlines and the inked appearance
  • Removing backgrounds on¬†colored art¬†(i.e. watercolor) for print reproduction
  • How to clean up the digital image to remove stray ink marks and rough edges
  • How to prepare¬†print-ready files for letterpress, flat printing, laser engraving and digital overlay
  • The difference between bitmap files and vector files
