Just My Type: Hand Lettering Favorites

August 06, 2012

For the most part, I prefer hand lettering the words on my cards. While there are some amazing fonts available for use and sometimes a really great font works best for a piece, nothing beats the uniqueness of hand lettering. My favorite hand lettered card I've created is the "Thanks" floral arch card. It turned out perfectly! 

Some other hand lettering I've been swooning over...

I'm a big fan of singer Ryan Bingham (you may remember his songs from the film Crazy Heart). He just released a new music video that celebrates hand lettering with lyrics to the song literally being painted across the screen.

Dana Tanamachi's chalk lettering is beyond amazing. You have to check out her portfolio of work!
