I’ve had a number of questions from customers via my Etsy store asking how to download and install my Procreate brushes into the app on the iPad.
Its not difficult at all but I think this post will help you if you are new to Procreate and downloading new brushes to use in the app.
I thought I’d write a quick blog post to show you just how easy it is to do, especially if you do the whole process from your iPad.
Whether you’re into iPad lettering, digital planning or creating art – if you are new to Procreate and you don’t know how to add these brushes to your brush collection inside the app, you might find yourself feeling pretty frustrated.
Read on to see just how easy it is..
It really couldn’t be easier to download and install new brushes into your Procreate brushes files.
The biggest tip that I can give you is to make sure that you do the whole process – from buying the brush all the way through to downloading from your Etsy account downloads page and installing directly to the Procreate app.
I’ve created a simple How-To graphic below to guide you through the 3 easy steps. If it makes it easier for you, simply take a screenshot of this image on your iPad so that you can read over it again if you need to.
How To Download and Install Procreate brushes from my Etsy shop:
- Once you have clicked on the Download files link for a brush on Etsy – Click on the three dots at the top right of the Dropbox screen. Click on Export.
- Click on Open In…
- Scroll right along the top selections to show the apps until you find the Procreate app symbol. This will send the new brush file to Procreate. You will find your new brush in the Imported brush category under the brush symbol at the top right of the screen.
* You will need to install one brush at a time by repeating this method.
Easy! Once you’ve done it once or twice you won’t have to think through it again.

Below is one of the brush bundles available in my etsy store – Perfect if you’re into digital planning on the iPad (minus the handwritten notes. 😀
You can create your entire planner inside the Procreate app or, alternatively, create the artwork in Procreate then save the images to your iPad camera roll and import them into your digital planner. I personally use the GoodNotes app as my digital planner. I love the flexibility of GoodNotes, it is feature rich! But I do still create a lot of my planner stickers, lettering and art in the Procreate app before bringing them into GoodNotes.
