HAND LETTERING TIPS
1. Use a pen specifically made for brush lettering. You could letter with a regular marker or a Sharpie but that will that make it more difficult. My favorite brush pens are currently Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I like them because they have 2 tips. One is a flexible brush and one is a thinner tip perfect for detail work.
2. The key to hand lettering is using thick downstrokes and thin upstrokes. To master the thick downstroke, place pressure on the pen and drag it down your paper. For the thin upstroke. release the pressure on the pen while still maintaining contact with the paper.
3. Practice. Practice. Practice. Brush lettering takes time to master. I’ve been practicing on and off for about a year. I’m no expert but I feel like my lettering is getting better the more I practice. Two books that have helped me with my hand lettering are Creative Lettering and Beyond and The Complete Book of Chalk Lettering. You can also find practice sheets from my blogging friends, below.
4. Study the experts and then find your own style. Will your style be big and full of flourishes or more simple and refined? Everyone has their own way of hand lettering. Your style may change over time as you are learning but you will soon find your own unique way of lettering.
