Hand Lettering Inspiration and Instruction

Hand Lettering Takes So Much Practice

I am definitely a beginner when it comes to hand lettering (or modern calligraphy). For months, I’ve been in awe of those with lettering talent, and I have been practicing and practicing. I’m nowhere near the level of the gorgeous examples below, but maybe one day I will be. I’ve rounded up all my favorite hand lettering inspiration accounts so you can enjoy the beauty, too.

I know these artists are just the tip of the iceberg. Let me know in the comments below of any artists I’ve missed that you love.

If you’re looking for a more refined lettering final product, check out these accounts for digital lettering. From what I’ve seen, it seems as though the tools of choice for digital lettering artists are the ipad pro, the procreate app, and the apple pencil.
