  • 1 Helpful tip

    Brush lettering relies on pressure: thick down strokes and thin upstrokes. 

  • 2 Hold your pen

    Hold your pen close to the nib like you would hold a regular pen. Angles will change, but in general, hold your pen at a 45 degree angle. 

  • 3 Practice makes perfect

    Practice a few times before working on your final draft. 

  • 4 Brushing down strokes

    When making down strokes, increase your pressure to create a nice, thick line. 

  • 5 Brushing upstrokes

    When making upstrokes, decrease your pressure and write with the very tip of the pen. Move from a 45 degree angle to a perdendicular position for best results.
