TLV Calligraphy Guide Sheets are designed mainly for calligraphers and lettering artists looking to draft your quotes, messages, passages etc. It can sometimes also be useful for drawing illustrations.


These guide sheets were initially designed by and for our in-house calligrapher, Verniecia, to cater to her needs when drafting quotes for commissioned pieces such as our Calligraphy Floral Frames. She has come across many free and paid guide sheets available in the market but wanted something that provides everything that she looks for in one. Hence, she designed her own and we are sharing this for FREE with anyone looking for one with similar needs.


To find out how she uses them to draft out her quotes, check out the blog post here.
