These lettering practice sheets are perfect for beginners and experienced letter-ers. Practice a little each day and watch your technique improve!
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with new lettering styles. It’s always fun to break out of the mold and try something new after doing the same style for SO long. Sometimes I just can’t think of any new ways to draw my letters so I sat down and came up with some lettering practice sheets for the letter. Some styles are lowercase, some styles are uppercase and all of them are easy to master with a little practice.
BASIC HAND LETTERING TECHNIQUES
Before you sit down with these Letter A practice sheets, you’ll want to make sure you have an understanding of hand lettering basics. Check out this post on the 8 basic brush lettering strokes and also this post on how to avoid shaky lines when lettering. Basic strokes may sound boring but they are the fundamentals of hand lettering.
A big misconception is that if your handwriting is “bad”, then your hand lettering will look “bad” too. This is not the case. Think of hand lettering more like drawing instead of writing. When you think about it that way and realize that the letters are composed of a few basic strokes, the process becomes less daunting.
HOW TO USE THE “LETTER A” PRACTICE SHEETS
These practice sheets are not located in my resource library. To access them, enter your email below. Even if you are already on my email list, you’ll need to enter your email to receive them. Once you enter your email, you’ll be sent a link to download the file.
You can either print out a hardcopy of the worksheets or use these as iPad lettering practice sheets. For hardcopies, print out the hand lettering PDF. I recommend using the Tombow Fudenosuke pens or the Tombow Dual Brush Pens for these practice sheets. If you do not want to waste printer ink, print out one copy of the sheets and then use tracing paper on top.
If you want some hand lettering practice on Procreate, you’ll need to use the JPEG version. These posts go over the basics of how to use hand lettering practice sheets in Procreate and how to hand letter on the iPad.
The packet comes with the cover sheet showing every style in addition to sheets with room to practice each individual letter style.
