Learn to Create Beautiful Writing

Calligraphy - the art of beautiful writing - is as old as writing itself. Beautiful writing endures in the skilled hands of craft persons who letter a wide range of materials from books to family trees. It also enjoys renewed popularity as a means of artistic personal expression. Courtesy of Sheaffer®

Project Instructions

Step: 1

The Sheaffer® Script

The Sheaffer® Script has been designed exclusively for Sheaffer® Calligraphers. It is a modern and open style of handwriting. Try these letters in a wide range of colors and sizes.


Step: 2

The Chancery Italic Hand

From the Florentine school, Italic letters are basically elliptical or slanted rather than round and vertical to the line of writing, allowing a freer, more flowing style.


Step: 3

The Uncial Hand

The uncial alphabet is also known as a unifon or majuscule alphabet, having no distinct upper and lower case but on uniformly-sized set of characters.
Uncial letters should be round and generous, but close together and “upright” in character.
