The “What Pen Is This” Supplies Guide!

Have you ever seen someone’s work and wondered (or asked), “What pen is this?”

I’m betting the answer is yes, if you’ve been trying to learn modern calligraphy, lettering or other related art.

And that’s why I made this free guide, which I’ve (lovingly) called…

The “What Pen Is This?” Modern Calligraphy & Lettering Supplies Guide


The links below may be affiliate links where appropriate. This means that your purchase through these links may result in a few cents in payment to me, to support creating further resources like this one! That being said, I will never suggest supplies that I do not personally use and fully recommend.

Now… you’re totally welcome to just go ahead and download it right away.

BUT… before you do… you should know…

I’ve teamed up with some of the biggest and most awesome stationery & art supply companies out there to surprise one lucky pen-friend with a TON of the supplies inside this guide.

Like… pretty much everything you need to get started with calligraphy & lettering.

This is huge.
