Download Free Calligraphy Practice Pages
If I counted on my fingers and toes how many times I’ve been asked to create a calligraphy practice page for a lettering style I shared… Well, I would run out of fingers and toes pretty quickly.
I knew if I created a practice page for lettering I would want it to be more than just a printable alphabet exemplar. Sure, you can copy those with a sheet of tracing paper on top, but where’s the fun in that? After I finally decided on what alphabet style to use for my first printable alphabet, I lettered it up, scanned it into Illustrator, and got to work.
This alphabet is great for beginners because it includes a stroke reference to show you exactly how to get this particular style. You can reference the guide as you trace over the gray versions of the letters.
I recommend using a Tombow Fudenosuke hard or soft brush pen to work for this alphabet. Any small size brush pen would work well with the thin style of the letters. You could also download the pages and use them in Procreate if you don’t feel like wasting any trees today.
I have a few more styles of calligraphy practice pages in the works, as well as an expanded version of this guide. These modern calligraphy alphabet printable practice pages (what a mouthful!) are a lot more fun to make than I expected.
