    Hi 🙂

    In relation to your reply to Joanna’s question
    “I’m pleased to report that all of these bonus items you have listed (including the 90 minute video tutorial!) are featured with The Hand Lettering Toolkit available here”

    Where are the 3 STANDARD Speed Video Tutorials (see brush names, key commands and more) located?
    The pdf with video links that i received leads to a page with no standard speed videos apart from the webinar

    Thanks
    Bronwyn

    • SJ Bennett says:

      Hey Bronwyn,

      I am so sorry for any confusion caused!

      I’ve just asked our Product Team to double check this with the designer for you, so rest assured as soon as I know where you can find these, I will be back in touch 🙂

      • Bronwyn says:

        Thanks 🙂
        The page they provide a link to does have videos, however they are speed illustrations of less than about 3mins with no way to really tell what/how the product is actually being used..
        Eager to hear back on what you find out

        Thanks 🙂

        • Annabel Smith says:

          Hey Bronwyn,

          Thank you so much for coming back to SJ and for giving us some more information, this is really useful so thank you so much for taking the time to investigate this on your side!

          We are just waiting to hear back from the designer and will give you an update as soon as we can, so our sincerest apologies for any delay caused!

          In the meantime if you have any other questions, or if there is anything else that we can help you with, please do not hesitate to ask!

          • Bronwyn says:

            Hi Annabel, any update on this?

            • SJ- Community Manager says:

              Hey!

              I know Annabel popped you over an email yesterday with regards to this. She’s out of the office today, but I will be picking up from here and will send you another email as soon as i’ve had a look at this for you 🙂

  2. Hi, I am a huge fan of DC since I discovered you guys a few months ago, but thinking how I can use these tools for the Affinity suite (photo and designer)? I have the Adobe tools until December *time when my free license I got from a raffle but thinking how I can port this out before I buy. I definitely would want to improve my handlettering skills and tools.

    • Carol Stratford says:

      Hey Mike,

      Thanks for the comment on this one and we are so happy to hear you are a fan! We are delighted to hear you found us 🙂

      So this particular kit actually comes with .tpl files which are not currently compatible with Affinity I’m afraid! We do have another Hand Lettering Kit from Retro Supply Co also available in our Birthday event which might suit you a bit better in Affinity- https://bit.ly/2OAk3pW as this is compatible with PS CS4 which usually means it will work in Affinity! I hope that helps but if you have any questions, please do let me know!

    Hi there,
    I just bought these and a few other items from the awesome Birthday sale (Happy Birthday DC!!). I have Affinity, which imports abr files, but not tpl files. Alas, these are tpl! Is there any chance we can get the abr files as well?
    Thanks!

    • Carol Stratford says:

      Hey Lori,

      Thanks for the comment on this one and for the lovely birthday wishes 🙂

      This set comes with .tbr files only I am afraid Lori- I know there was discussion of Affinity updating their software to allow for tool presets but it has yet to be implemented. I am so sorry to disappoint you about this!

  4. Alexis Trono says:

    Note to all, this was featured in the bundle: The Creative’s Complete Inspirational Arsenal

    • carol@designcuts.com says:

      Hey Alexis,

      Thanks for the comment on this one- you are completely correct and this was featured in our bundle The Creatives Complete Inspirational Arsenal which was released in Oct 2017. I am so sorry that the bundle information on this one isn’t up to date- I will get this fixed straight away to show the bundle! Thanks again for letting us know we had missed this- it is hugely appreciated 🙂

  5. Vicki says:

    Would love a ProCreate version of these brushes! But getting the PS ones too! Thanks for the fab pricing on this one! Happy Birthday.

    • carol@designcuts.com says:

      Our pleasure Vicki and we are so happy to hear you like the birthday offer on this one 🙂

      We will definitely pass your feedback onto the team at Retro Supply Co to see if a ProCreate version could be looked at!

  6. Corina says:

    Hello,
    I was wondering if these brushes are only for Photoshop (what about Illustrator?)
    Also are they pressure sensitive? I am looking for brushes which can provide thick and thin strokes, as you normally would obtain on paper with a brush pen.
    Thank you

    • sarah-jane@designcuts.com says:

      Hey Corina,

      This one is only compatible with Photoshop because this is where the designer created the files so these weren’t tested in AI unfortunately!

      The great news is though, these are pressure sensitive 🙂

  7. chrisma3 says:

    Hi There! I just recently discovered Design Cuts and I love it. I’m about to download some items but before doing so, I was wondering about this particular HAND LETTERING TOOLKIT BY RETRO SUPPLY CO.? I do in fact have AI CC, as well as Photoshop CC; however, I haven’t utilized Photoshop yet, but I am definitely becoming somewhat versed in Illustrator. My main question is will this particular pack work in Illustrator???? I’m not quite ready to delve into Photoshop. Please advise before I make this purchase.

    Thank you very much 🙂

    • ben@designcuts.com says:

      Hey Chris,

      Thank you so much for your kind words and a huge welcome to Design Cuts from the whole team 🙂 We’re so pleased you’re enjoying your experience with us!

      I’m really sorry but I’m afraid that this pack is only compatible with Photoshop so I’m afraid it will not work for you in Illustrator. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news on this one but rest assured, we do have some awesome Illustrator brushes in our marketplace that will definitely work for you 🙂 please do let me know and I will happily offer some suggestions for you!

      I hope this helps, Chris, and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any other questions. I’m always happy to help!

  8. Kathy Hardy says:

    I just finished downloading this and I’m really confused with the brushes installation? It’s actually a “tool” [.tpl] and NOT a “brush” [.abr], so I have no idea how to access and/or use the brushes once I have them installed in my tools…they do not show up in my brushes? Help!

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Kathy,

      Thank you so much for your comment. I’m really sorry to hear that you are having some trouble installing these brushes as tool presets. Rest assured, I’m on the case to get you up and running again 🙂 I’ve sent you a quick email to assist you with this. I hope it helps!

  9. Julie says:

    Oops – never mind my previous comment – I only have CS3. Sorry!

    • Ben Neeves says:

      No problem at all, Julie! If there is ever anything else I could assist you with please do get in touch. I’m always happy to help!

  10. Julie says:

    I am going to be doing more sublimation next year on aluminum and frames. Is the learning curve huge? I really want to set my designs apart from the rest so is this going to be difficult to master? Fonts + brushes scare the heck out of me…..like over extending the brush stroke over the edge of the font – I assume you use masks which I am not very familiar with. Love this and would love to master it! Thank you 🙂

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Julie,

      Thank you so much for your comment! It’s great to hear that you are looking to do more work with brushes and fonts to set your designs apart from the rest 🙂 I’m sorry to hear that this pack won’t be compatible in your software but I would love to offer some resources that would make a really useful addition to your creative toolkit? Please do let me know and I will happily lend a hand 🙂

  11. SJ Duff says:

    Hey Linda,

    I am so sorry for the delay in getting back to you!

    I have just popped you over an email now to help you with this 🙂

  12. Linda says:

    Hi Ben. I am hoping to buy the latest program that includes this pack. How advanced of a Photoshop user do I have to be to really be able to use it? I am def a beginner. Thanks.

    Totally irresistible! Love it!

  14. cat sadowski says:

    I’m a bit confused by this offer. Looks interesting but unsure how it would fit into my work. I create watercolor designs and then scan and work with them in PS. Is there a video anywhere that I can view before committing to purchase?

    • SJ Duff says:

      Hey Cat,

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      I have just popped you over an email to help you with this 🙂

  15. D Smith says:

    I have been eyeballing this over on CM, but was wondering if I need to have a drawing tablet in order to use this?

    • Ben Neeves says:

      Hey Denise,

      Thanks so much for getting in touch and for your interest in this item! I can certainly help you with you query.

      You certainly do not require a drawing table to work with this pack! They should work absolutely fine for you once they have been installed onto your Photoshop 🙂

      I hope this helps, Diana, and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any other questions. I’m always happy to help!

  16. Joanna says:
