Hand lettering tutorials

If you still a beginner in the area of handlettering and would like to learn it step by step, we recommend that you first use a pencil to draw the desired lettering on a piece of paper. This can be very helpful because during handlettering letters often have curved lines and are squiggly. After you have drawn the template, there is nothing else in your way: grab a pen or brush and decorate every letter to your heart's content!
Ensure that the pencil markings that you drew at the start are no longer visible. You can do so, for example, by tracing over the markings using a thin fineliner or erasing them after completion.
Inspiration: On our pages about calligraphy, you will also be able to find different alphabets and font types that you can use to practice your handwriting.

You will find great ideas, guides and inspirations in our new hand lettering tutorials. This will help get you started with using your new Pitt Artist Pen sets immediately.
