Equal parts drawing and drafting, the art of hand lettering is experiencing a renaissance. Learn the basics with this comprehensive starter kit, which includes the Hand-Lettering Ledger guidebook, OHTO graphic liner pens, clear Midori ruler, STAEDTLER pigment liners, a non-photo pencil, lead holder set, lead pointer, Rhodia No. 18 pad, and Ames lettering guide.
Note: At checkout, you can choose the paper (Blank, Dot Grid, or Graph) and cover color (Black, Orange, or Ice) of your Rhodia No. 18 pad. Not all combinations are available. This drop is limited to 100 bundles.
STAEDTLER’s Mars Technico 780 2-millimeter lead holder uses a drop-clutch mechanism and features an integrated lead pointer in the cap. For custom sharpening, use the included sandpaper. Instead of using graphite, you can use the non-photo blue pencil which is undetectable by copiers and computers allowing you to easily scan inked sketches.
The portable, clear Midori ruler doubles as a protractor and measures 11.8 inches when fully extended. The rotator circle features degree markings for easy angle measurement, and the ruler is fitted with small holes every 1 centimeter for convenient marking.
To draw guide lines and slope lines, use the Ames lettering guide. This invaluable instrument features an indexed rim and a rotating disk, allowing you to manipulate letter height, make cross-hatch marks, and draw evenly spaced lines up to 1.5 inches.
Once you have your pencil sketch, you can ink your drawing using a pigmented ink formula, which is photo-safe, permanent, waterproof, and lightfast on paper. The STAEDTLER pigment liner drawing pens’ fibrous tips are encased in metal for clean use with rulers and other drafting tools and templates. This four-pack from STAEDTLER includes tip sizes of 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 millimeters.
The OHTO Graphic Liner drawing pens feature sturdy metal tips designed to produce the same pigmented lines you’d get from their felt-tipped counterparts. Waterproof, archival-safe liquid ink deploys from the needle point roller tips making it a durable and perfect tool for heavy-handed drawers. Either pigment ink option is useful if you plan to finish your sketch on paper or scan into your computer to clean up in Illustrator. This assorted set includes sizes 005 (0.3 mm), 01 (0.4 mm), 02 (0.5 mm), 03 (0.7 mm), 05 (1.0 mm), and 10 (1.5 mm).
With step-by-step lessons, plus more than 120 practice pages, this handy workbook is an invaluable tool for anyone interested in hand lettering. From serif and script to illustrated and ornate, the guide covers tons of original hand-drawn styles.
