Notebook with stylish hand lettering

Add decorative lettering to plain notebooks

Whether on greetings cards, note pads or wall art – decorative lettering is everywhere! Hand lettering (also known simply as “lettering”) means drawing letters in an artistic way and then embellishing them. There are no set rules – anything goes. You can make the letters rounded or angular, use script or block letters, add shadow lines or embellishments. In our example we used plain notebooks and added some stylish lettering to the cover.
