Title: Template/Guidelines
Post by: Selle.A on January 19, 2014, 04:09:31 AM
Hello Everyone!

Do you guys have any template/guidelines to share? I usually just use a ruler to line my paper to make sure I write straight however I have seen others (even professional calligraphers) use a guideline when they address envelopes, place cards etc. I found a website where you can pretty  customize a template but I have no idea how to do it.

Does any one have any guidelines/templates to share =)

This website is so full of information that I can't find elsewhere (especially for FREE) and I am very thankful!

Thank you

Selle

Hi Seele,
Go to IAMPETH.
Click on lessons.  Then many types of guidelines. 
They also have a wonderful videos section.
Actually everything is wonderful.  It really is a treasure. 
Hope that helps you.
Love,
Roseann

i like to use this site to quickly generate a sheet of guidelines.  and you can adjust everything to try out different heights.

I posted some Copperplate guide lines here (x-height from 3 to 10 mm):

Lots of great guidelines being shared lately!

There are also some beginner guidelines for both letters and numbers in the Pointed Pen Tutorials board. However, I'm going to include them here as another quick way to find them. Click on the thumbnail and then right click on the image to save.
