How To Print Calligraphy Worksheets
Before we dive into printable brush lettering practice sheets, I thought I should mention a few tips on how to print and use them because I surely made a lot of mistakes with them myself and paid dearly for it.
If you are practicing your letters right in your worksheets, make sure you use high-quality printing paper (like this HP Premium Paper); otherwise, the paper might damage your pen, and we never want that!
Alternatively, you can also use any paper and just use a tracing paper sheet for practicing. That way, you’ll also be able to reuse your worksheets, plus tracing paper is much more affordable.
My recommendation would be this marker paper or this tracing paper.
The basic thing you need to know about pens you use for brush lettering is that they should have a flexible tip. Or at least have the possibility to create both thin and thick lines.
First of all, let’s start with 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 pen, but for a much, much lower cost.
There is even a special course you can take for free to learn how to use these markers for brush lettering.
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.
For more recommendations, check out my post The Best Pens For Brush Lettering.
Masha Plans Free Lettering Worksheets
I already mentioned that in the list above, but I thought it’s a good idea to mention it again – there are some lettering printables I’ve created to help you out, including a worksheet with more flourish ideas, lined paper for lettering and practice sheets for the days of the week and months of the year.

Thank you Masha <33
I am going to be working with a patient with depression who used to really enjoy calligraphy, can’t wait to print these out.
HI. Where is the link to download the 31+ printables?
All the links are in the blog post =)
i cannot find that blog post please send that printing link in this comment box
All the pink box text are the links. There are too many to post here, sorry!
I was confused too…. I don’t think there is one link to download all at once. You have to click on each individual link, and I guess the total number of pages is “31+”
Yeah, it’s each download with its own link =) I’ll try to edit and clarify this in the text for the future.
I see that I am not the only one confused, haha! That makes me feel a little better. :) I think you have to click on each individual link and the total number of pages add up to more than 30. So it’s not just a one click download.
Yes, it isn’t! Since these are made by different creators so you do have to download them separately. Sorry for the confusion, I’ll try to update the post to make these things more clear.
Thank you so much for mentioning my small brush lettering practice sheet!
Thank you for creating it!
