Are you looking to incorporate hand lettering into your stationery designs? As with anything, it just takes a little practice and a little bit of time to develop your own style. For lettering that imitates calligraphy, write each word as you normally would in cursive, then go back and make all the downward strokes thicker. If you’re using a brush pen, you can make the downward stokes thicker by applying more pressure. It takes a while to get used to, but remember, the joy (and experience) is in the journey. Just start and you’ll get there before you know it!
