Get those calligraphy layout ideas rolling with this FREE Printable Calligraphy Template! Also includes free word art I created with this template.
I used to think that people who created gorgeous lettering designs were just winging it. Yes, you have to have some natural artistic talent to create a composition, but a lot of it is practice and knowing how to layout a composition. This FREE Printable Calligraphy Template is perfect for those just starting out with calligraphy!
I tell you EXACTLY how to use this calligraphy template in my new online Course, Casual Calligraphy! I’m so excited to introduce this, guys. You’ll learn how to use a brush pen, like the Tombow Fudenosuke and a Calligraphy Pen, how to write out the ABC’s, how to do bounce calligraphy, then how to use all those techniques to discover your own personal style.
I’ve also got some fun embellishment worksheets, and 23 more templates like this one. My workbook has over 100 pages of practice pages that you can print off as many times as you like…because like I said, you’ll really get better if you PRACTICE.
Calligraphy can be super intimidating – but really…what have you got to lose with trying? I don’t know why, but I was so stuck in my ways with fauxligraphy. That’s where you lettering it out and fill in the down strokes. It can be really pretty, but using a brush pen or calligraphy pen is SOOOOOOO much more efficient. I’ve been comparing some of my lettering from a couple years ago to now and WOW. Such a difference.
I love these worksheets for the Casual Calligraphy course because EVERY PAGE has a spot where you can track your progress. I highly recommend keeping those pages in a binder, and come back to them in a month, or a year…write out those same pages and you’ll see a change like I did. You’ll notice my free printable Calligraphy template has a spot for that, too.
I literally practice daily. I have to for work, but it’s also incredibly relaxing. If I’m stressed out, I sit and letter and it relaxes me like nothing else does.
As you use this template, remember you don’t have to follow it exactly. I’ve included a hand-lettered design I created with this calligraphy template. I used my iPad to make it easier for digitizing, but you’ll see a start to finish project with a brush pen AND a calligraphy pen in my Casual Calligraphy Course.
