Hand lettering: 155 sayings for every occasion

Would you like to learn or use hand lettering, but are currently blocked by suitable sayings ">

Hand lettering is the art of writing meaningful things meaningfully - by hand. The best thing about it: there are basically no requirements, neither with regard to the exact font that you use, nor with regard to the specific statement. The element that is decorated with hand lettering can also be freely selected.

Classic paper or textiles are just as possible as wooden, glass or plastic objects. The main thing is to be creative and individual. The goal is sooner or later - after intensive, passionate practice - to have a distinctive, unique hand lettering style and thus to give short texts a unique touch.
