Let's take the "HUSTLE" out of self-employed
As a creative, you know the tiresome struggle of being a one-man show—booking commissions, printing and producing prints of your artwork, managing the production and the shipping...to sum it all up: EXHAUSTING!!
You've heard that diversifying your income is the key to success as a business owner, but how? Licensing. That's how.
Licensing your work means you work with brands (get it, B+B ;) who pay you to recreate YOUR work on THEIR products!!
They handle all the headaches, the printing, the production, managing customers, getting it into retail stores and more, while you get to focus on the stuff you love all while receiving checks in the mail! Sounds bomb, right?

Designing seamless patterns and cohesive collections

Bonus! Building a brand and growing your following on Instagram
Organizing a killer library of work to present to brands

And we equip you with a customizable brand book template with notes from Julie that will give you direct insight into what agents and manufacturers look for and customizable email copy to use when pitching your work!
Jenna is bringing you her best tips on building a brand on Instagram. This isn't a course on how algorithms work or spamming your way to your next 10,000 followers, NO! I teach you how to create marketable art and a social media presence that has you standing out and attracting your dream collabs!
MODULE 1: Licensing & collaboration
This is your complete rundown of the licensing business model. We define the terms for you, help you discover and hone your signature style, and how to adjust your mindset for success in the industry!
MODULE 6: Building your brand on INSTAGRAM®
Jenna (artist) and Jos (surface pattern designer) are teaming up to bring you the best surface pattern design course out there! Learn how to create a perfect scan, the steps to edit and color correct your artwork in Adobe Photoshop, and how to design seamless patterns and a cohesive collection in Adobe Illustrator. Jos has created patterns in-house for brands like Rifle Paper Co., The Jungalow and Magnolia...she knows a thing or two about this! subject :).
The foundation of a great brand collab is understanding trends. Essentially, we're teaching you how to be a detective—using informative shopping research to find contacts for collabs and forecast trends.
MODULE 3: Creating the work
Like Costco free samples, I've got a taste test for you! Hit play on the video and I'll show you through the course! What lessons are included in each module, what the member area looks like, a peek at the handouts and more!
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. You also get access to a student-led group and 2 bonus Q&A calls with Jenna and Julie.
Absolutely! The internet is a beautiful thing. If you have internet access, you can take this course AND licensing is a global industry. I've worked with manufacturers in Canada, Europe and more! P.S. One of our students in the course is from Poland and works with US brands, too!
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 custom greeting cards.
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 have the potential to 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) and communicate with you to help you avoid late fees!
Absolutely! If you want all the guesswork taken out of the beginning stages (and then some!), then you're right for this course.
It really depends on the effort you put into it. We've had students take this course, implement and within one month score a 5-figure licensing deal and we've also had students who don't see income until 6 months to a year in! It really depends on you implementing the tools in the course.
YUP! I have a friend who makes 7-figures a year just off of her licensing business! But as I've mentioned before, you've gotta implement and put in the work from this course. Just because you hit purchase, doesn't automatically guarantee success!
Nope! In the course we have a bonus module dedicated to HELPING you grow your Instagram following, but it's definitely not necessary to have this in order to license your artwork.
Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (at least Illustrator), a registered business for when you start working with licensees/manufacturers, a lawyer on deck that can help you register your trademark if necessary (we have recommendations inside the course), an agent (not required and we have a whole spreadsheet full of agents that you can work with inside the course)! Dropbox for organizing your files and Canva for making quick one-sheets are two of my other go-to platforms that I recommend!
ABSO-FRIGGIN-LUTELY!! That's what makes this course and investment so bomb! We're continually looking at the course to update the content, making sure it's always the best educational content out there on licensing AND that all of the topics stay super relevant for you and your business. We take feedback from our students very seriously and want to continue to help you grow your business!
NOW, HERE'S THE KICKER.
