Brand + Brand

The exact systems for licensing your work to other companies so you can build extra income and extra exposure doing what you

love!

Calling All Creatives!

Brand Plus Brand breaks down licensing basics in a way that is accessible and empowering so that you can understand what licensing agents, manufacturers and retailers are looking for in a brand, learn about licensing agreements, create a compelling pitch deck, understand how to build patterns and a licensing library, market your brand effectively on social media and more. No matter what level you are - from hobbyist to seasoned artist - you will become a licensing guru with a budding business in the works by the end of this course.

Licensing is the hustle-no-more business model that artists and designers and even celebrities use to collaborate their way to commercial success.

This course comes to you from Jenna (artist, designer and marketing expert) and Julie (licensing agent). We have 30 years of experience combined and we're not holding back on what our secrets are!

I wanted to learn about licensing as it’s a way for me to do my own art, express myself and generate passive income. 

Not only did Brand Plus Brand teach me another branch of the art business, but Jenna also taught me important behind-the-scenes stuff like contracts and pricing.

The templates saved me hours, if not days. It’s almost as if a virtual assistant typed it all up for me.

Before brand Plus Brand, I worked throughout the day but Jenna helped me schedule my time so I’ve got more boundaries. Now, I get to spend more time with my daughter and husband.

The Brand + Brand course is a great resource for designers at every level, from beginner to established.  

As an industry professional working for retailers prior to enrolling, I had previous exposure to the licensing business model and insight into artist / brand collaboration from the back end.

But I was able to learn a lot outside of what I knew coming in, particularly about Marketing and Social Media, and appreciated that the curriculum is relevant to the industry, and covers crucial aspects of how to be successful in art licensing.

It's like they looked at my Google search history and made it into an online course! 

All the questions I’ve been studying in one easy course!

Brand Plus Brand gave me a direct roadmap from creating to selling so I’ve become intentional with the things I need to do.

College never prepared me for this. 

And it makes me feel so motivated. If I hadn’t taken Brand Plus Brand, I would have given up as an artist within 6 months of starting.

Brand Plus Brand gave me the confidence to negotiate a five-figure deal from one licensing project and, when I saw the paid invoice in my bank account, I was stunned.

Life before Brand Plus Brand was hectic. I was working with companies in Poland and the US but they were custom orders with a one-time payment. 

I was always searching for my next client and struggling with how to price my work. It meant spending hours on Google searching for answers.

Brand Plus Brand is the roadmap you need to start selling your art. Now when someone wants to work with me, I’m ready.

I have my proposal, pitch deck and pricing all in place. 

I’m so glad I trusted Jenna - she’s honest and transparent. She's exactly the mentor I need.

I didn’t even have a business before Brand Plus Brand but I knew I needed to invest in myself so I’d get to the next level.

There’s so many different avenues to choose but Jenna showed me the direct route to take to get my art licensed, find an agent and grow my following.

Ania's Story

Life before Brand Plus Brand was hectic. I was working with companies in Poland and the US but they were custom orders with a one-time payment.

I was always searching for my next client and struggling with how to price my work. It meant spending hours on Google searching for answers. 

And as a mom of three and a one-man band, it was stressful, tiring and time-consuming. 

Then I found Brand Plus Brand and it gave me everything I needed to take in consideration while negotiating contracts for licensing and other creative collaborations.

In the last 6 months, I’ve signed three contracts for licensing deals in America, Sweden and Australia - and one of them even reached out to me! I felt so confident while negotiating the pricing and, for the first time, I recognized the value in my work. 

If I hadn’t taken Brand Plus Brand, there’s no way it would have happened so fast. 

Buying the course was a big investment for me but I made my money back within a month. 

And because I invested in myself, things moved faster and I didn’t have to Google everything. 


And licensing my watercolors has meant that I don’t need to take every single custom order. I’m not desperate for the one company to respond to my emails or pay my invoice."

“Brand Plus Brand gave me the confidence to negotiate a five-figure deal from one licensing project and, when I saw the paid invoice in my bank account, I was stunned. 

how she went from juggling client work to signing a five-figure licensing deal in one month!

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS!

I’m an author, educator, and creative entrepreneur, who’s greatest joys are helping other creatives grow the business and life of their dreams. As an online instructor and business strategist, I’ve taught over 10,000 students how to start and grow their creative careers. And as an entrepreneur, I’ve turned my kitchen table hobby into a million dollar creative business. I’ve had the amazing opportunity to teach my workshops all over the world, become an author of two best-selling watercolor books, and work with amazing brands like Blue Sky, Brit + Co., Penguin Random House, Health-Ade, Better Homes and Gardens, and MORE! But things weren’t always this sweet! Trust me. 

I’m a creative entrepreneur, brand consultant and licensing agent who works with emerging designers and rising brands to help them grow though partnerships, licenses and brand collaborations. I have over 25 years of experience in licensing, started my career at entertainment giant Nickelodeon, which I call the “Harvard Education of Licensing”. At Nickelodeon, I was responsible for managing a multi-million dollar licensed toy business for Nickelodeon franchises Rugrats, Blues Clues and the Nickelodeon brand in partnership with toy marketer Mattel. In 2001, I decided to pursue my own personal passion for design and interiors and started my own boutique licensing business uniquely focused on growing emerging designer brands through licensing and brand collaborations.

Before I started licensing my artwork, I was worked to the bone as a custom wedding stationery designer and felt at a loss for how to scale what I’d built into something sustainable. I took on the occasional commission and opened an Etsy shop where I sold four or five prints to some friends. LOL. I was truly making it! My pivot into licensing started when a small yoga towel company asked what I’d charge to have my art on their towels, and since then the lessons I’ve learned in this industry have completely transformed my business. I’ve gone from not knowing what to charge for projects, to getting my work into major retailers…and having a steady bit of income to fall back on is a major bonus!

As a licensing agent, I have established and managed licensing businesses for brands like Nate Berkus, and currently represent designers Dabney Lee and Jenna Rainey. My client’s products can be found at major retailers including Target, Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Barnes & Noble, Sam’s Club and Home Goods (to name a few). As a consultant, I have created behind-the-scenes licensing strategies for Real Simple magazine, Staples and numerous manufacturers in the home and gift marketplaces. I have a keen eye for design, and am known for my ability to channel and protect my clients’ creativity while artfully managing the business aspects of my clients’ licensing partnerships to achieve long-term, commercial success.

I'm Jenna.

I'm Julie.

What comes with this course?

What's the difference between this course and Pen to Press?

When does this course become available?

Great question! This course includes over 30 pages of guides and handouts to go along with each module, over 5 hours worth of video courses and bonus modules, and customizable templates. These templates will be provided in .psd and .ai file formats so you can add your own work and flare!

Absolutely! The internet is a beautiful thing. If you have internet access, you can take this course!

Great question! These two courses are completely different. Pen to Press is a course on custom stationery design and working with stationery CLIENTS, while this course covers licensing. How to write contracts, how to price your work, how to find the right partnerships, building and organizing a portfolio, etc. This is the next step in terms of career for most creatives if you’re wanting to get into passive income and working with brands. Licensed artists can find their work on products like home goods, office supplies, etc. in retailers, while custom stationery clients (Pen to Press group) will be working on wedding stationery or their own line of greeting cards, etc.

As soon as you purchase! You will receive a confirmation email from Kajabi, our new learning platform, with the login information you created at checkout and the link to access our private Facebook group.

People who pay, pay attention and this course is meant to help those who are serious about licensing their work and growing their business. Spending under $1000 for this content is an insane deal and if you put in the work you learn, your results will turn into profit. You’ll make the money you spend on this course back in no time! Or…if you’re not serious, you could spend the next few years figuring it out on your own and hopefully making it work in this highly competitive marketplace!

Great question! The payment plan students take a lot more monitoring/work on our end. We have to check each subscription every month to make sure payments are going through (credit cards change/can get declined).

Because these are separate courses, we do not offer any additional discounts to Pen to Press students.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Pen to Press students get any discount on this course?

Why is the payment plan more than the one time?
