      I am a new subscriber from the UK. My question relates to Digital Calligraphy. Which product should I purchase for practising Calligraphy. The iPad Pro or a Wacom product

      • Melissa says:

        Depends upon your workflow and your budget. If you’ve got a grand lying around, get the ipad pro! It’s so fun to use. If you’re on a budget, get the Wacom intuos. Don’t bother with the small graphics tablets, get the medium intuos pro or large intuos pro. :)
