Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to live in the USA to submit?
– No, our freelancers live all over the world! However, strong communication and understanding in English is a must.

Do letterers get to choose what series they work on?
– While a letterer is welcome to request a title they’re interested in, assignments are offered based on availability and whether a letterer’s personal style and experience complements a title. Our editors present assignments to letterers based on these factors, and then it is up to them to accept. Letterers who take on a series are typically automatically assigned each volume in the series until its completion.

I sent you an email but haven’t heard back!!
– Due to volume, and our publishing schedule demands, we may not be able to respond to all submissions in a timely manner. However, all submissions are kept on file for review when we assign new titles, and you may feel free to contact us again to update us on any new or improved skills since you last sent a submission.
