Learn How to Letter like a Sign Painter!

Here it is! The online course you have been waiting for since EuViz! We filled the room there but there is plenty of room here online—where I go over all of the letters, numbers, punctuation, variations and give bonus tips on how to practice and marker maintenance. Grab a brush tip marker and join me! It's fun, fast and easy to learn.

An excellent addition to your library!

Designed with the visual practitioner in mind, this 24-page zine provides practice strokes and exemplars on how to use a brush marker to letter like a sign painter.

Why letter like a Sign Painter? As a graphic recorder, you are required to work quickly and write fast. Sign Painters work fast too! But rather than having to "palette" your brush between strokes, I show you the angles to hold your brush tip marker and letterforms that emulate those that sign painters use. By practicing you will see how fast and stylish this lettering style can be. The zine also offers variations so that you can find your own style of lettering like a sign painter.

Sold separately from the online course—while not necessary to own—it's right-sized to hold and refer to when practicing at the wall.

"Heather knows a [potentially intimidating] amount of hand lettering, design and typography craft yet, she is encouraging, fun and incredibly generous with her instruction and willingness to impart hard-earned industry knowledge. She patiently described how to get the best line from each style of Neuland pen and suggested hacks for making writing tools work in new and inventive ways."

Jennifer Nichols

"I’m not a newbie to the visual process field. I’ve been a practitioner for over 20 years and have trained 2000+ people across the globe (including Heather early in her GR/GF career). Unlike Heather, I have no formal background in lettering. So it was my privilege to be HER student and benefit from her impressive hand lettering, calligraphy and sign painting knowledge. She’s a translator between the worlds of these lineage crafts and our newer GR/GF field. I learned things in her course that I applied the very next day (talk about teaching a ol’ dog new tricks). And loved, via her Neuland Ambassador role, learning more about the uses of their specialized markers and tools. I also left with a humble appreciation of the practice, mileage and patience required to get to the level of mastery that she holds in this important aspect of the work. Highly recommend Heather and her lettering programs. "

"I believe people come into your life for a reason and I am blessed to meet Heather Leavitt Martinez the lettering guru!!! Wonderful, knowledgeable, dynamic educator, who is also clever, funny, and kind. Not only did she spend time with each of us in class but worked with me for over an hour separately because I am left-handed. How fabulous is that!?"
