Copperplate Calligraphy Guidesheets

As I'm preparing for my workshop, I figured for my first blog post, I'd share downloadable guide sheets that I'll be giving to my students :)  For Copperplate, I find guide sheets necessary because it helps me to write at consistent slants and create muscle memory. There are tons of resources out there for guides. Here are a couple of websites you can check out:

  1. Iampethhttp://www.iampeth.com/collection/guide-sheets
  2. Zanerianhttp://www.zanerian.com (you can download either small or large guide sheets)
  3. Bianca Mascorrohttp://www.biancamascorro.com/blog/2015/10/21/new-guidesheets-in-grey (she has both black or gray versions)

I took Bianca's version in gray and then added some thicker black lines to help emphasize the x-height as well as ascender/descender lines. I print these on HP Premium Choice laser paper to practice with.
