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.
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 calligraphy worksheets to improve this skill.
But let’s start from what you’ll need for using these worksheets first.

How To Use Calligraphy Worksheets
Before we dive into printable brush lettering practice sheets, I thought I should mention a few tips on how to 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.
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.

Brush Lettering Practice Sheets With Basic Strokes
Since practicing brush lettering starts from basic strokes, let’s start with free basic stroke printables.
You’ll see that every creator has their own style, so even brush strokes might look a bit different. It’s not a problem – you can do any style you like. The important thing here is – to keep all your strokes in the same style, particularly angled the same way.
Ok, you’re ready now, so let’s dive in and check out these practice sheets to rock your calligraphy skills.
This one includes slant basic strokes, as well as a sample alphabet. It has a more traditional calligraphy look to it, but the basic strokes are basic strokes. So it works even if you’re going for a more modern calligraphy feel.
You can practice your lettering and keep the brush strokes even by using specially lined paper. I actually have the empty worksheets with lining that helps with brush lettering, as well as several other worksheets and resources.
