Before I share the free courses, I thought I should mention a bit about what I consider hand lettering.
And be sure to scroll until the end to get some more resources and freebies.
What Is Hand Lettering
Hand lettering is an incredibly approachable way to mix drawing and writing. It’s basically the art of drawing letters rather than writing them.
Unlike calligraphy, hand lettering doesn’t require any special tools. Just take a pen or pencil and experiment with different techniques to create unique styles.
Hand lettering can add an extra personal touch to your Bullet Journal, greeting cards, or any other project that involves text.
So when I speak of hand lettering, I don’t mean calligraphy or brush lettering. But if that’s what you’re interested in – just check the end of the post for the resources on that.
Hand lettering doesn’t require certain muscle memory like brush lettering, but you still need to practice to get better. And the courses below will help you get started and inspire you on all the possibilities you have with this art form.

Hand Lettering Supplies
Of course, each of these creators has their own supplies they love using. But I thought you might want to hear some of my picks.
Here is what I love using when I sit down to do some hand lettering:
- Pilot Dr. Grip Pencil – it’s important to get a pencil with a comfortable grip, and this one is my favorite.
- Sakura Pigma Micron Fineliners – fineliners are the basis of hand lettering, well, at least if you want to include lines in black and such.
- Tombow Twin Tone Markers – I absolutely adore using these markers for my lettering; there are so many colors, and they come with two tips to allow for different types of lines.
I can go on and on and on, but if you need more recommendations, check my post Best Hand Lettering Pens You’ll Adore.
