Sharing is caring!

Bullet Journal lettering is a fantastic way to sprinkle some extra creativity onto the pages of your BuJo. Let’s be honest, we’ve all had those moments where we’re flipping through our journals and thinking, “Hmm, could you use a splash of pizzazz here?” And that, my friends, is where the enchanting world of brush lettering comes waltzing in, cape billowing dramatically in the wind.

But here’s the kicker – getting those strokes to dance on the page isn’t as easy as waving a magic wand. Oh no, I’ve been there, gripping my pen with the determination of a knight facing a dragon, only to end up with something that looked more like the dragon had a sneeze fest on my journal. It was a humbling start.

However, fear not! Because just like any epic quest, the right tools can make all the difference. That’s why I’m beyond thrilled to share with you a treasure trove of FREE brush lettering worksheets. These will be your guide and mentor towards mastering the art of brush lettering.

Just like mastering the perfect pancake flip or finally figuring out how to fold a fitted sheet (a mystery for the ages!), brush lettering is a skill within reach for anyone willing to practice.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Artistic? Me? You’ve got the wrong person!” Trust me, I’ve been there. I had no creativity in me, and my first brush writing attempts could barely pass for letters.

And if you think you can’t do it because your handwriting looks like a chicken scratch, don’t let that stop you, either. Because, unlike handwriting, brush lettering is about drawing your letters rather than writing them, so it’s a whole different skill.

But, as with many other things in life, the secret sauce is practice, practice, and a bit more practice. And there’s no better way to whip your brush lettering skills into shape than by using free Bullet Journal printable lettering worksheets designed specifically for this purpose.

The ones we’ve got here are like having a personal trainer for your penmanship – guiding you through each stroke, helping you build muscle memory, and cheering you on as you progress from shaky lines to swoon-worthy swirls.

How To Use Brush Lettering Worksheets

It seems like using worksheets is pretty straightforward, but there are a few tricks to it, which I’ve learned from my first experiences learning brush lettering.

If you’re planning to practice directly on your printable worksheets, it’s essential to opt for quality printing paper. I sure didn’t know that, but a rough surface can damage the delicate brush tips over time, and we certainly don’t want that! I paid with my first Tombow DUal Brush pen for my knowledge.

But if you don’t want to splurge on premium paper, there’s a workaround for that too. Simply lay a sheet of tracing paper over any regular paper, and there you have it – a reusable worksheet that’s gentle on your pens and your pocket.

As for which tracing paper to go for, there are plenty of good options out there. Just remember, the key factor is smoothness to ensure a seamless glide for your pens.

Brush Lettering Supplies

The next thing I want to talk about before I share all the worksheets I found is brush pens, the true heroes of brush lettering.

Now, when it comes to the world of brush lettering, choosing the right pen is just as important as picking the perfect bike for a cross-country tour. And I’ll share with you a few great options to try, but first…

You probably already have a hidden gem gathering dust somewhere at home – the humble Crayola Super Tips! Believe it or not, these little champs can work wonders in the world of brush calligraphy, matching their high-end cousins stroke for stroke without burning a hole in your pocket.

The technique for them is a bit different, but they are definitely a great pen to start with if you’re on a budget.

Other than that, here are some pens I’d recommend:

  • Tombow Dual Brush Pens. They are amazing, have tons of colors, and, most importantly – their brushes are very beginner-friendly. Plus, the marker tip will help you fix any small mistakes in your lettering you might make as a beginner.
  • Smaller brush pen for more detailed work, such as headers for your weekly spreads. Here is where you have a wonderful option of Tombow Fudenosuke pens. They come in hard and soft tips so that you can control the style of your lettering.
