What should I consider when I’m hand lettering?

In principle, when you are hand lettering you can do almost anything which helps you create artistic designs with letters, but it is important to observe a few suggestions. Practice makes perfect and hand lettering is all about practice! Create good habits around your writing environment, posture and technique and you will reap the benefits in future.

The right environment:

Make sure that you always have enough space and light! A well-lit and tidy desk will get your creative juices flowing and help you practise for longer.

Posture:

Since you need to practice a lot, particularly at the start, you must cultivate a good posture right from the beginning. Sitting up straight not only prevents unnecessary back pain, but it will help you maintain the correct distance from your paper and ensures you have a clear view of your lettering. Make sure you sit in a suitable chair!

How you hold your pen or pencil:

Get used to holding your pen or pencil between your thumb and forefinger, with the middle finger supporting the forefinger. Hold the pen about a finger’s width away from the nib, this will prevent your fingers from cramping too quickly and gives you enough control over the pen. (Consider using a writing aid like the Sattler Ergo Grip which positions your fingers correctly around a writing tool).

Take your time:

Approach every letter with tons of patience! Hand lettering stands or falls by the precision and symmetry of the image created by your letters. With regular practice, you’ll soon see improvements.
