Sharing is caring!

Bullet Journal lettering can seem like a daunting task, right? I remember flipping through Bullet Journal page inspirations, my heart sinking a little each time I came across a beautifully scripted quote or heading. It felt like an art form that was out of my reach. But guess what? I was wrong!

Just like a good cup of coffee, mastering the art of modern calligraphy takes a bit of time and the right blend of resources. And the best part is, you can get started right now, without even spending a dime!

In this blog post, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite free lettering printables that helped me turn my scrawls into swoops and swirls. So, buckle up, folks! It’s time to embark on our calligraphy journey together!

Brush lettering, my friends, is like a secret spice that can add an unexpected zing to your Bullet Journal pages. It’s like learning to salsa dance; at first, you might step on a few toes (or in our case, smudge a few pages), but with each swish of your pen, you start to move more confidently, more fluidly.

And here’s the beauty of it – it’s not some mystical talent that you’re either born with or not. Nope! It’s a skill, just like cooking or riding a bike. And like any skill, it gets better with practice. Remember when you first tried to flip a pancake, and it ended up on the floor? But you didn’t give up, did you? You kept trying, and now you’re the Pancake Master!

Well, brush lettering is the same. Yes, it might seem tricky at first, but with the right tools – like the free lettering Bullet Journal printables we’re going to explore – and a sprinkle of perseverance, you’ll soon be creating letters that dance and twirl across your Bullet Journal pages. So, let’s grab our pens, and get ready to make some lettering magic together!

Stationery Recommendations

Speaking of pens, you’ll need some to practice brush lettering. So let’s look at a few of my favorite brush pens that I know you’ll love using as well.

In the brush lettering universe, finding the right pen is like hunting for the perfect pair of hiking boots for a mountain trek.

The key here is flexibility – consider it as the shock absorbers of your lettering journey. It provides you with the control to craft delicate, thin lines and bold, thick strokes alike.

Now, let’s say you’re just testing the brush lettering waters and not quite prepared to invest your savings. Well, I have some fabulous news for you.

Chances are, there’s a hidden treasure lying dormant somewhere in your home – the unassuming Crayola Super Tips! Shockingly, these little warriors can perform miracles in the brush calligraphy realm, competing with their pricier counterparts stroke by stroke, without making your wallet weep.

But if you’re on a hunt for traditional brush pens, here are my top picks:

  • 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.

There are even more resources and stationery recommendations for mastering modern calligraphy at the end of the post, so be sure to keep on scrolling.

How To Use Lettering Printables

Now, if your plan is to practice directly on your printable sheets, let me tell you, the paper quality matters. Why, you ask? Well, it’s all about taking care of your pens. A rough surface can be a bit of a bully to your delicate brush tips over time, and we definitely don’t want that!

I recommend using something like HP Premium Printing paper.

But what if you’re not quite ready to spend a pretty penny on top-notch paper, or perhaps you’re just keeping an eye on the purse strings? No sweat!

There’s a clever solution for that too. Simply place a sheet of tracing paper over any ordinary paper, and voila – a reusable worksheet that’s kind to both your pens and your wallet.

Now, when it comes to choosing the right tracing paper, there are loads of stellar options out there. Just keep in mind, the magic word is smoothness – this ensures a silky glide for your pens.

You could start by trying the Strathmore 300 Series Tracing Paper Pad.

Now that you know all there is to know and have all your supplies ready, let’s look at different printables to help you practice.
