Need PayPal? Click here!
Penultimate Magazine is a magazine for lettering artists, produced BY lettering artists. Penultimate comes out on a bi-monthly basis and has a new theme each edition - from brush pens, to pointed pens, to watercolour and more. The magazine includes interviews with artists, product recommendations, reviews, how-tos, tips and tricks, insider info, community events and workshops and much, much more!
In Issue One, we delve deep into the world of Brush Pen Lettering. We take a look at many different brands to consider when beginning, as well as techniques (such as blending, highlights, shadows and the "ombre" effect) and troubleshooting. We discuss brush pen storage, our product of the edition (Artline Stix), and the importance of grip, angle and pressure when using a brush pen. We also sit down with Becca Courtice from The Happy Ever Crafter to discuss her pen-related pursuits, as well as spend 5 minutes with Sarah Pearson, the mastermind behind The Inky Box. Jennifer Smallridge, an Accredited Exercise Physiologist also tells us how important sleep is when it comes to creativity. Not only that, you can also take part in the lettering challenge of the edition and submit your work for publication!
This is a DIGITAL version of the magazine which will be made available to you in your account immediately after purchase - you will not receive a physical copy.
This is for ONE EDITION only. This is not a subscription. It is to read the very first copy of Penultimate Magazine. Please check the homepage for subscription options.
Penultimate is a BI-MONTHLY magazine, which means it comes out once every 2 months (so, 6 times per year)
**due to the image-heavy nature of this Magazine, the file size is quite large. You can read the magazine online, but to avoid blowing your data, make sure you're connected to wifi before downloading a copy to your device**
Is Penultimate a printed magazine?
Nope. Penultimate Magazine is now a fully digital magazine. Issues 1-8 are plain PDF files, but from Issue 9 onward we have more dynamic content in addition to the PDF magazine, such as downloadable files, video interviews, video demos and more! You will not receive a printed magazine.
...Can I print the magazine?
Yes, you can! You are entitled to print ONE copy of the magazine once purchased. When you login to your account and access the mag, there will be a little download link so that you can save it to your device, and either read it in your own PDF reader, or print yourself a copy.
How do I access the magazine?
Once you 'enrol' (or purchase) the magazine, you'll be prompted to either create an account or login to an existing Teachable account you have. Once purchased and logged in, the Magazine will be under 'My Courses' (menu in top right corner of screen).
How long do I have access to the magazine?
For as long as the internet exists!
How can I pay in PayPal?
You can pay through PayPal by clicking here, and selecting the magazine(s) of your choice. Unfortunately the Teachable platform doesn't allow PayPal for $AUD currencies, but if you click the link in the previous sentence, you can complete your purchase through Black Chalk Collective's Shopify store which has more payment options. Once you've purchased through there, please wait 15 minutes for an enrolment email. Our fancy-pants system will automatically enrol you in the magazine you bought (and even create an account for you if you haven't got one already).
Is this a subscription?
Nup, this is for one edition of the magazine. You can find subscriptions on the home page.
Are refunds available?
Sorry, no. Due to the digital nature of the magazine and the instant access, we are unable to offer refunds once you've accessed the material. Please consider before purchasing.
Who can I contact if I have any questions?
Our editor, Emma! [email protected] - Emma will try to help you with your query, however, if it is something technical related, we may have to refer you to Teachable.
