frequently asked questions

How can I try Pencil?


Just fill out the form at https://www.trypencil.com/apply-for-a-14-day-trial. Our team will review your submission in 24 hours, and if we can help we’ll arrange a call to get you started.

What kinds of creative assets do I need to use Pencil?


Please share as many creative assets as you can. The more the platform has to play with, the better!

Video. At least 2 of 1min combined duration, ideally both brand and UGC. MP4 format with no supers or graphics
Product images. At least 4, ideally both lifestyle photography and pack shots. JPG or PNG format less than 2000px, 10mb, 72dpi
Brand kit. Dark and light logo images in PNG format, font files in TTF or OTF format, and at least 3 color hex codes

Does Pencil generate for other languages?


Pencil is designed to work in English. If you want to try it in any other languages, especially other ‘Roman alphabet’ languages with similar characters, you can, and some of our customers do by manually translating some phrases, but we don't officially support other languages.

How does the 14-day free trial work?


Pencil is now available for a 14-day free trial. You can add unlimited team members, generate, edit and export ads. You only pay after your 14-day trial is complete.

What happens at the end of my free trial?


At the end of your free trial, you will be invoiced and charged for your first month on the paid plan that you selected.

Can I change my plan later? Can I add extra brand workspaces?


Yes, we’ve designed our plans flexibly so you can activate or deactivate brand workspaces as your needs change. Once you add a new brand workspace, your first month subscription period will begin immediately.

If at any time you need more brand workspaces than your tier allows, you can add more at $1k/mo/workspace on the single brand plan or $500/mo/workspace on the multi brand plan.

If you need to generate Ads for multiple brands, you might want to upgrade to a multiple brands plan, which allows unto 10 pages and 1,000 Ads per month.

What’s the difference between deactivating a brand workspace and canceling my subscription?


If you are paying for multiple brand workspaces, you can deactivate workspaces you are not using. When you deactivate a workspace, we will continue to store all your assets, generated Ads, and all the insights that you’ve already learned using Pencil in that workspace. If it is an additional workspace beyond your tier quota, charges for the workspace will stop at the end of your billing period. You can re-activate workspaces yourself at any time as long as your account is active.

When you cancel your subscription, you will lose access to your account and all workspaces entirely and all charges will stop at the end of your billing period. If you want to restart a cancelled subscription, just contact us at sales@trypencil.com

Am I locked into an annual contract?


No. All plans are monthly recurring contracts, and you always have the option to pause or cancel a plan before the end of each subscription period. If you want to commit to a discounted annual plan, please contact sales@trypencil.com.

What payment methods do you accept?


We accept all major credit cards. For discounted annual contracts, contact us and we can also consider payment via invoices.

Will my data be private and safe?


Yes. Please review our terms of service, privacy policy and AI ethics policy which is always updated at the bottom of our website.

What is your cancellation or refund policy?


You can cancel your subscription at any time. If you cancel within the free trial period, you will not be billed and service will continue until the end of the free trial. 

If you cancel after the free trial period, you will be receive a final bill at the end of your current billing cycle. If for any reason you’re unhappy with Pencil, please let us know as soon as possible. You can contact us via chat inside the app, or email help@trypencil.com, give us a detailed account of what happened, and we’ll work with you to make sure you have the best experience possible.

What happens if I use more than my plan’s quota of Ads?


Your plan’s generous quota refers to the number of Ads you generate and then either approve, download or export into your connected Facebook Ads Manager account(s). All the ads generated by Pencil that you don’t use, are not counted towards your quota. If you want to use more Ads than your quota allows, you can pay for additional ads on a per Ad basis, as follows: $10/ad on the single brand plan and $5/ad on the multi-brand plan.

What happens if I don’t hit my plan’s allocated volume of Ads?


We understand that the number of ads you need each month may vary. If you don’t use up all of your monthly quota of ads, your unused quota will roll over for an additional month automatically.
