In 2014 I created the very first engraving set available for illustrator and it was a big success. With this new volume, my aim was to improve on the authentic look that made the first pack so popular and, more importantly, enhance the functionality, making this the most user-friendly, engraved, vector brush set available!

So, what makes this brush set so special?

Speedier drawing

Not only do the brushes draw multiple lines with one stroke, they are also all anti-stretch pattern brushes, which means you can draw a range of stroke lengths with just one brush - so, you won't need to switch brushes so often!

Kinder to Illustrator

Loading multiple brushes into Illustrator can use valuable memory slowing it down. Because of the anti-stretch brush function, you need fewer brushes compared to an art-brush equivalent - less really is more!

Purpose Built Shading Brushes

Something that no other engraving set boasts. Another time-saver and a vital aid in capturing that vintage look with maximum authenticity.

Multiple weight Brushes

The brushes come in four weights - heavy, standard, medium and light. Use these together to build a range of vintage tones.

Outline Brushes

Something often missing from vintage brush sets - without them you'd need to use the standard Illustrator stroke, resulting in a less authentic look.

So, whether you're a professional or hobbyist - it's now even easier for you to start making vintage vector art! Why not give it a try?

Here's what some happy customers have said about the pack -

I am stoked to have the opportunity to purchase such a awesome and useful tool which is very helpful in my design workflow. Keep up the amazing design products!

The pack contains all of these fantastic components:

The Brushes - 59 authentic looking engraving brushes.

If you are a tablet user, you'll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included (please note that this feature only works in Illustrator CS5+).

A Bonus Vintage Paper Texture
