diy hand lettering


Ever since I was young, I have always been fascinated with typography, hand written notes and calligraphy, and so when I saw this post  on a pair & a spare, I most certainly read every word of the article and raced to my desk to give it a go.

Step 1: Gather your supplies


Step 2: Select your choice of card or paper


Step 3: Draw some guidelines


Step 4: Roughly sketch the skeleton of your letters


Step 5. Add thickness to the letters


Step 6. Trace over your sketch with your fine black pens


Ta da! C’est magnifique! For more detailed instructions, I urge you to visit a pair & a spare.
