March Lettering Ideas

Writing the same word in different styles will not only help you practice but also find your unique calligraphy style. Each time you write a word differently, you can pick the letter form you like best and keep using it.

Developing your calligraphy style is so important to make sure your lettering doesn’t look like anyone else. Sure, there will be some similarities, but you want your style to be unique. 

These are the 5 different styles we’ll be reviewing with each practice worksheet.

  1. Faux Calligraphy
  2. Basic Morden Calligraphy Style
  3. Bounce Calligraphy style
  4. Flourished Calligraphy
  5. Block lettering Style.

Tips to Remember When Practicing Calligraphy

  • IMPORTANT: Slow down! As you are practicing, make sure to take your time. Practicing calligraphy is not meant to be fast.
  • REMEMBER: use light pressure for the upstrokes (when moving the pen upwards) and heavy pressure for the downstrokes (when moving the pen upwards). Find a comfortable position and take breaks if you need to. Lift your pen between each stroke as you’re practicing the letterforms. You can also adjust your page anytime to get a better angle.

I hope you find this blog post helpful and that you start creating calligraphy today!
