The lowercase calligraphy practice alphabet is one of the most downloaded files on this site. When I made it, I promised that there would one day be an uppercase version. It is really, really overdue but I have finally created the uppercase calligraphy practice sheet and it is available for download now.
How to Use this Practice Sheet
You can print this practice sheet on regular copy paper and use that to practice. Personally, I like to practice on tracing paper. I find that my nib glides smoothly and I usually get a super crisp line. I usually use the tracing paper over the top of the practice sheet. The grid on the practice sheet is a nice reference for creating the letters.
Four giant sheets of tracing paper were used to create this practice sheet. I used the Nikko G nib with a cheap speedball pen holder. The ink used was my favorite Black Sumi Ink that you can find on amazon for about $5. It lasts forever and has amazing flow. I highly recommend checking it out.
Why I Love Hand Lettering
I started my adventure into hand lettering a couple of years ago because I needed to address some wedding invitations. I really didn’t know where to start at first but after a couple of classes and a lot of practice I started to develop my own style. I’m now able to charge people for addressing envelopes.
Lettering is peaceful for me. It’s a way for me to express myself in a fun way that I hope others will also enjoy. A good piece of lettering art always makes me feel happy.
I like to share some of my tips, projects and inspiration here with the world. I hope that some of you find this calligraphy practice sheet useful. If you’re interested in learning to letter please check out some of my favorite lettering classes.
