Tips For Creating Bullet Journal FontsYou might think it is a hard thing to decorate your bullet journal pages with different fonts. When I started, I also felt that I didn’t have it in me to make bullet journal fonts look cute and beautiful. But what we need to know is, you don’t need to have neat handwriting and drawing skills to create beautiful bullet journal fonts; anyone can do it. Below are a few tips that will stop you from making silly mistakes when you start creating bullet journal fonts.
- Practice is the key to everything! I recommend that you leave a few blank pages in your BuJo for practicing your handwriting to avoid any mistakes. You can even have a separate notebook only for handwriting practice if you are pretty serious about your fonts.
- The more you use the bullet journal cursive writing, the better you will become. So try to use it as often as possible. You can use it for writing the days of the week, special notes, quotes, headings, etc.
- Try tracing if you are unsure about your calligraphy skills. You have to print the fonts and trace them in your bullet journal.
- I always use a pencil first, and once I am happy with the outcome, I will then use the pen over the top.
- Don’t use low-quality pens. Use good ones! Trust me, this will make a huge difference in your handwriting. These Micron Fineliner Pens are one of my all time favorite pens.
- A dot journal will keep your letter sizing even because the easiest way to make your handwriting look neat is by making it all a consistent size. So try to use a dot journal for bullet journaling.
- Youtube has some great videos on calligraphy that will make sure you start your lettering in the right place. So do watch a few videos before starting to have the proper flow.
