How to add a Hand Lettering Printables to Procreate
- Save your image printable on your favorite cloud folder. Open Procreate > in the top right of the screen click on the “+” > click on “import”
Note: You can only import images into the canvas of Procreate, not PDF files. If the printable that you want to add is in a PDF format, open the printable in the Dropbox app, take a screenshot of the printable and save it to DropBox or to your iPad’s camera folder.
2. Open your cloud folder and find the image you want to import
You will be automatically redirected to the Procreate canvas along with your image.
3. To insert a picture inside the Procreate canvas: In the top left, select the tool option > insert > insert flat image > find the image you are going to use.
How to Import Brushes Into the Procreate App
My favorite brush bundle to use for iPad lettering is the Procreate Mega Bundle. Other awesome places to find brushes for the Procreate app are the Creative Market and The Hungry JPEG. If you are looking for free brushes, try the brushes from iPad Lettering and Behance Brushes.
1. Open the Procreate app. From the bottom of the iPad’s screen, gently swipe up, you will see the menu bar. Gently press on the app where all your Procreate brushes are stored > slide the app to the right or left side of the screen.
2. Click on the brush or brushes, they will automatically be added to the “import” folder in the Procreate app.
Note: The brushes must end in “.brush”. You can repeat the same steps to add pellets to the Procreate app.
Once the brush has been imported, you will see a preview of it in the canvas’ window of procreate
That’s it! Now you can import all your lettering worksheets, images, and use your favorite brushes to create amazing works of art.

Hi, I love your website. As a newbie to bullet journaling I get very excited about all the options available from you. My problem is I am an android user, Samsung user and do not use Microsoft Word. So, is there away to change your tutorials and resizing for printing for this problem? Thank you for all you do,
Have you tried google documents? It might not have all the Microsoft Word features, but it might help you.
Downloaded your numbers printables to practice coloring the lettering in Procreate. I downloaded them to iCloud drive. Then I tried to follow your tutorial to import the bunny numbers printable into Procreate. I tap import and go to the directory I have it stored in. The printable is grayed out and won’t let me choose it to import.
Which number printables did you save? Procreate only accepts images and not PNG. Let me know which printable you are trying to add to Procreate 🙂
It was the April Mood Tracker Lettering Printable. The back ground is a bunny with written numbers over the top.
Make sure you saved the Procreate version of the printable, not the PDF. Procreate only accepts images. Here is the link to the printable, please make sure to save the Procreate version and try following the tutorial again 🙂
When I tap the link you gave me, it takes me to the download link. I tap on the download link and Dropbox automatically opens and wants me to download the PDF. I don’t get an option to download any other format.
I just double-checked and the link is correct. Save the image of the April printable on a cloud folder and you should be able to add it to Procreate.
Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
