If you can’t get enough of the adorable, designer cards at Paper Source, Urban Outfitters, or even just your local Hallmark, why not try your hand at lettering and create a more personal greeting card?
The art of hand lettering and calligraphy is all the rage today because handwritten, hand-decorated, and hand-colored cards evoke an emotional, nostalgic response that generic greeting cards never truly can.
For those who might not know where to start learning hand lettering, you may be overwhelmed with the amount of choice there is from weight and quality of paper to thousands of pen brands, thickness, and colors.
