Step-by-step tutorial

Print off the template for your desired design.

Lettering template

Shade over the back of the template with a soft pencil (e.g. Mars Lumograph 7B).

Tip: The template can be enlarged to whatever size you want at a copy shop, so you can even create A2 size posters.

Attach the template (front side up) to the top corner of your lettering paper using masking tape.
Then go over the lines with a sharp HB pencil, to transfer the design onto the paper.
Before you remove the template, lift up one corner to check that you have transferred all the lines.

Go over the outlines of the letters with the lightfast, black pigment liner.

Then fill in all the letters in black. Finally, rub out any remaining pencil lines.
