Letter Builder - Draw letters with Ease!
Letter Builder - Drawing consistent letter-forms has never been easier!
We have taken one step further with our guidelines and zoomed in on a common lettering problem, consistency in our letter-forms. As lettering artists, we want to maintain, size, width, thickness and style throughout a word.
So we designed a number of letter grids that give you the basic form of each letter of the uppercase alphabet so you can spend more time giving the letters your own unique finesse. That’s right, with Letter Builder, drawing the outlines of Serif and Sans Serif letters consistently have never been easier.
Whether you are a lettering artist designing quotes, a type designer and want to create a full alphabet or a calligrapher and use as a guide sheet, we care about every aspect of your design process and aim to make it better and easier with each one of our products so that you have more headspace for your creativity.

Save the zipped file to your desktop, uncompress it and then add the items to your iCloud drive to be able to access on your iPad. If you are downloading straight to your iPad then install the free app "FileExplorer Free" or "Documents by Readdle" onto your iPad first, then you'll be able to open the zip file. Make sure to use Safari as Chrome won't let you download a zipped file!
If you're having any problems unzipping your download then please watch this video:
Please watch the below video to see how to add multiple brushes at once, as Procreate doesn't have this feature and so a workaround is needed otherwise you'll have to import them one-by-one.
Should you experience any problems not found within these instructions then please to reach out to me via my contact form.
