Lettering is one of the skills you might want to master for your Bullet Journal pages. I’m always in awe of the beautiful calligraphy people use to decorate their journal pages.

I’ve been really working on my lettering lately, and if you’re a beginner be sure to check out my Beginner’s Guide To Brush Lettering.

What I quickly realized is that the secret to better lettering is of course practice, so I did my research and found tons of free resources and printable worksheets to improve this skill.

Before we dive in though, here are some tips and materials to be sure you’re ready to get going with your lettering.

Starting With Lettering

The basics of lettering are pretty simple – downstroke is thick, upstroke is thin. Just like that, you can create brush calligraphy.

It’s, of course, a bit more difficult when you start, but as you practice you’ll see things getting easier.

Several main tips for brush lettering are:

  • Hold your pen at a 45-degree angle. It will make sure that you can get thick and thin strokes without damaging the brush.
  • Lift your pen up after each stroke. Lettering isn’t writing so it’s totally ok to lift the brush to help you create better-looking letters.
  • Take your time. There is no rush, take your time when you letter and make sure you put a thought to your letters.

Where To Learn Lettering

Well, of course, I advise you to start from my Brush Lettering Guide For Beginners, but here are a few more resources you might consider.

Lettering Supplies

Something you’ll definitely need is, of course, supplies, and boy oh boy is this a rabbit hole to fall into!

First of all, let’s start from the most budget version which you might even have at home – Crayola Super Tips!

Yes, these little devils can create the same brush calligraphy effects as any other brush pens, but for a much much lower cost.

Crayola Super Tips Washable Markers Age 3+ - 50 Count
  • One 50-ct pack of Crayola Super Tips Washable Markers
  • Super Tip Markers make thick or thin lines for a variety of coloring techniques
  • Washable marker set easily washes from skin and most washable clothing

If you want to invest in a proper brush pen, don’t go further than 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.

Tombow Dual Brush Pen Bold, 10 Pack, Bright, 10 Count
  • Ideal for fine art, brush lettering, faux calligraphy, illustrations, water color illustrations, journaling and more!
  • Set of 9 colors and 1 blender pen, with flexible brush tip and fine tip in one marker
  • BRUSH TIP: Durable and flexible nylon fiber brush tip, creates medium or bold strokes by changing brush pressure

You also might want to have a 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 you can control the style of your lettering.

There’re also colored and neon versions of these brush pens, so you could add some more spark to your headers.

Tombow 62038 Fudenosuke Brush Pen, 2-Pack. Soft and Hard Tip Fudenosuke Brush Pens for Calligraphy and Art Drawings
  • Contains both the soft and hard tip Fudenosuke Brush Pens
  • Features a flexible brush tip for different lettering and drawing techniques
  • Create extra fine, fine or medium strokes by a change in brush pressure

When you start practicing your lettering, it’s also very important to have the right paper. Usually, cheap printing paper will cause your pens to frey – just ask my poor very first black Tombow Dual Brush pen.

So, be sure to invest in good printing paper, my recommendation is HP Premium 32.
