“5-Step Approach”

In the CBJ Lettering Lessons, we follow a “Five Step Approach” to become completely familiar with each new font. Each step has a download printable for you to work with, which contains lettering tips, so please make sure to download, print and use. Some members put all the printables in a notebook to work on and keep everything together.

Step #1 – The name of the font is the “focus word”.

Step #2 – A full alphabet is presented in the second step.

Step #3 – Style options and refinements will be introduced.

Step #4 – Practice of writing song lyrics, scripture verses, etc.

Step #5 – The goal… write a verse in your bible.

Repetition and “muscle memory” will help shape your letters. Most people find one step a day to be a good weekly schedule. By then the style should be familiar and easy to use.


One of the most important concept in our lettering program is “P-I-E”.  “Pencil-Ink-Erase”.

Start lettering with a PENCIL. Take your time and ‘draw’ your letters rather than ‘writing’ them. Practice each letter multiple times until you are comfortable with the form.

Next, INK over the pencil marks of your best efforts. A good black fineliner is perfect for this. (Prismacolor .03mm pen is my favorite).

And lastly, ERASE the pencil marks, but only after the ink is totally dry. You will be happy with how clean your handlettering looks after you brush away the eraser crumbs.
