Fundamentals of Flat Brush Lettering: Block Capitals & Condensed Casuals


Sign painters use styles that can be lettered efficiently with a flat brush. The shape of the brush itself leads to particular aesthetic qualities in the lettering. Strokes of the brush, when formed effectively, give the lettering a personality of its own.

Two staples of the vernacular American genre will be covered: single stroke block and single stroke casual.
