You may have noticed my increasing obsession with hand-lettered logos and calligraphy. I’m not ready to spend a small fortune on pens and shit, but I have my tablet, and my Illustrator brushes, and I’m ready to have a ball with it and maybe a Skillshare class here and a lesson there. To that end, I’ve been browsing Pinterest really kind of a lot, and looking at fancy script fonts, and generally just looking at letters a little too long to be normal.
I just don’t know that much about letters, it turns out, so I need a lot of guidance. I also still end up sketching a lot on notebooks, despite the Bamboo Pad — specifically this Minted notebook, actually. I love their collection, so I was pretty happy when they reached out for a collaboration.
Since it’s wedding season and I’m all over this hand-lettering thing, I thought I’d gather some inspiration that also serves as a little selection of my favorite of Minted’s wedding invitation designs and other wedding cards on their site. Some are hand-written, some are hand-drawn, and some simply use fancy scripts that inspire me all the same. Hope you like my picks!

The last one isn’t hand-lettered, but it includes beautiful hand-drawn flowers that make me want to try my hand at that sometime, so I’m including it as a bonus.
Do you like hand-lettered design elements? Do you have a favorite style?
