Use Some Easy Hand Lettering Techniques To Elevate Your Envelopes

These hand lettering techniques are actually pretty simple.

A quick check of the calendar shows that it’s National Handwriting Day coming up on Sunday. It’s a day set up by the pen-and-paper makers of the world, but we’re in for the celebration. We’ll do it our way, of course – building on the thought that it’s a good time to sit down and deliberately write a personal note or letter – or a love letter!

Hand lettering artist Hayley Barry is helping us along with her instruction on how to write fancy on an envelope.
