Comic Letterer for Hire

For a more detailed description of what you get with this service please click here.

Comic lettering is often overlooked as part of the comic book creation process that can be skimped on to save a bit of money. This, my friends, is a bad move.

A professional letterer can make a huge difference to a comic, elevating a comic book from good to excellent and can encourage the reader to engage with the story and buy in to your characters. Lettering is a skill, and like all skills it can be mastered. Lettering has rules, and like all rules you have to know when to solidly stick to them and when to break them for the benefit of the story-telling.

Just as a pro-lettered comic can bestow awesome on your end product, a badly lettered comic sticks out like a sore thumb and screams 'amateur'. Those who work in the comic industry can spot a badly lettered comic immediately. If you plan on submitting your comic to publishers, you simply must have it lettered by someone who understands the power of lettering.

I've been lettering comics for several years and use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to achieve the desired effect. I'm a graphic/web designer by trade and spend much of my working day using these programs so I have an advanced understanding of the software.

My 18 years of creative graphic design skills also contribute to my lettering output, allowing me to use my knowledge of typography, layout, colour theory and spacial awareness to produce top quality lettering. Most of all, I love doing it!

Please take a look at some of the samples below. I am currently available for hire. If you like what you see, please get in touch. I also do comic book logo design.
