Hardware for iPad Lettering Artists

Apple Pencil for iPad Pro — Highly recommended
Compatible with both sizes of iPad Pro; designed with lettering artists in mind in collaboration with Calligrafile contributor Master Penman Jake Weidmann

Apple Pencil Cap & Cover
The Apple pencil tends to roll off flat surfaces, and the charger cap tends to get lost. Prevent both from happening with a rubber cap like these (or any other from the dozens of brands that make them)

iPad Pro — Highly recommended
Available in 10.5" and 12.9" sizes

Stargoods Touch Screen Gloves for Digital Artists
Gloves for the ring finger and pinky to prevent your skin from rubbing the tablet screen
