    Calligraphy is the kind of art in which a professional design announcements or wedding cards and various important transactions for their clients. But to be honest you have to have writing skills as well if you want to be a good calligrapher. If you want to learn it, you can learn it easily by asking the instructor of this profession or just practice. Many steps are involved in learning process. The first step would be to collect materials required for it. Don’t expect that take a pencil in your hand and a piece of paper for the first time and create a beautiful design of a picture. Find these items from your local store or nearby store to start the learning process.

    Use pencils erasers and ruler for the art work in the beginning. Ruler is not required after some time when you will become an expert of the art work. It’s just only for the beginners because they face problems in the beginning, to draw the outline they need it. But you can skip this step after two or three weeks of work. Are the things mentioned above are enough? No, buy these things also. They include a pen, paper and ink. These all are the requirements of the art work. Normal paper must not be used for this purpose, use heavier paper and also ensure that it is acid free. Which type of pen should we use for our art work? There are many types of pen used for this purpose. The best choice would be of flat tip pen. Why normal inks are not used for calligraphy? Suggest the name of ink used for this purpose? Common ink has fault that they spread over the paper but permanent inks are designed only for this purpose and special tip pens are available used for drawing of large as well as small lines.

    Learn calligraphy through a kit or under a tutor. Practice until you attain perfection. Personally, call on stationery shops or printers to tell them of your talent. Leave your self-designed cards, with an idea of cost and samples of your best work. For card printing, first print your design and logo and then get it reduced to business card size, two by three and a half inches. This will give a sharp and clear look to your business card. Get multiples made with the help of an inexpensive photo offset process and finally get them embossed for expensive looks. Make samples of cards, menus, and certificates with calligraphy and give them as samples to potential customers. This leads to impulsive purchases. Calligraphy has been considered an art form for centuries, and I feel very encouraged to see the ancient practice still being used. A highly skilled practitioner can elevate the practice of Calligraphy to stunning works of art that inspires others. Lettering and calligraphy have been used as forms of expression ever since we, as a human race, have learnt to write. It can be learned and enjoyed by everyone, and can become an absorbing hobby.
