I began lettering when I moved in with my mentor for a season in my life and she introduced to me bullet journaling. I was never a creative person that doodled or wrote pretty I was a brain, a planner, a mathematician (literally). I only wanted to learn because I love planning and it gave me something in common with a person I loved like a mother. We would spend hours creating layouts, talking about supplies, and lettering. After a couple of months, I realized that little by little I was getting better and that got me so excited. Three years later, here I am creating beautiful things every day.
I get a lot of questions about what supplies I use and what I recommend. So, I wanted to create a list of my favorite supplies and tools I use.
I suggest you shop around to get the best price, but I have included where everything can be purchased on every image. Simply click on the image and the link will take you to where you can buy it.
The paper you use will vary depending on your project. Here are some of the types of paper I like to use:
If you’ve wanted to learn calligraphy but don’t know where to start, or you just want some practice. I have created a couple of guides to get you started!
If you already know the basics, and just want some practice or you attended my workshops and now you just wanna keep going, these are some resources for you!
Pens, Markers, and More!
Okay, before you continue, I would like to admit I have a slight obsession collecting writing utensils. I love trying new pens and collecting them. These are a few of my favorites:
If you want to know more about the materials I use, you can join one of my upcoming workshops to learn how to use them!
Once you attend one of my workshops, you become a part of a super cool Facebook group where we share our resources, tips, and where I can answer any questions you have.
For My Small Business Friends
These are some tools and resources I use all the time for my business!
The Biz Birthday Bash is a company started by two amazing women who run their own calligraphy/stationery businesses. They created an A-Z directory where they share all of their vetted an preferred vendors. So, if a client wants you to create anything custom or you are looking for a specific supply or service it is there! Whatever it is you need, they have a vendor for it. They also have an amazing private FB group where everyone can ask questions & get the answers and support they need.
The A-Z has been a wonderful investment for my business and is a great resource even if you don’t own a calligraphy business or stationery but offer any kind of merchandise; they have tons of amazing vendors. Below are some of the services and products the vendors on the directory provide!
The membership is $147 a year and it is worth every penny. You get immediate access to an alphabetically categorized list of 200+ vendors, discounts from the vendors, and so much more. If you have any questions about it feel free to email me.
