Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is hand lettering?

    Lettering involves creating unique and characterful letters, one by one. Lettering is different to typography, where a whole alphabet is created and each letter is reused many times throughout a text. If the word ‘Fiverr’ was written using typography, then the first and second ‘r’ would be identical. But if we used lettering techniques to write ‘Fiverr’, then each ‘r’ would be different! Many lettering projects are completed using software like Illustrator, but hand lettering is the technique of drawing these letters by hand.

  • Is hand lettering hard to learn?

    Basic hand lettering is incredibly simple – if you can pick up a pencil then you can do it! Of course, that doesn’t mean that you’ll be very good, but with practice and expert advice you’ll be able to improve your skills. Learning hand lettering is about more than just improving your practical techniques. It’s also about developing your creativity and sense of style. Hand lettering can encourage us to think about everyday shapes in new and exciting ways. The more you do it, the better you’ll get!

  • What’s the difference between hand lettering and calligraphy?

    Hand lettering and calligraphy are similar, but there are some important differences. Hand lettering often takes a long time, because each letter is unique and may include fine details. A pencil or stylus is normally used for hand lettering. Calligraphy is also about creating unique letters one by one, but calligraphy is usually performed quickly, by creating swift, bold strokes using a pen and ink. Because calligraphy is faster, it’s often used to write out longer passages of text. Hand lettering is better suited to logos, titles, or short taglines.

  • How do I become a lettering artist?

    The first step toward becoming a lettering artist is building your skills! Learn the techniques behind hand lettering and practice them until you can complete projects confidently and efficiently. Put together a portfolio of your best work; this will make it easy for clients to check that your style suits their brand image. Once you’ve developed your skills and portfolio you can start marketing your services. Creating gigs right here on Fiverr is the perfect way to do that!

  • Can you make a successful career from lettering?

    Yes – but your level of success will depend on how skilled, willing to learn, and determined you are. Lettering is a small niche and when you first start out you might need to offer complementary services (like calligraphy or graphic design) in order to make enough money. As you become more experienced you should be able to build up a client base and focus on lettering. It’s important to be patient and not to give up if you don’t achieve overnight success!

  • How much should I charge for hand-lettering projects?

    Hand-lettering artists charge anything from a few dollars to a few-thousand dollars per project! When you start out, you’ll probably need to offer low prices to attract your first few clients, but avoid working for free (charging for your work is a vital part of being seen as a professional). As you become more established, you’ll be able to raise your prices. Ultimately, you should consider the amount of time each project will take and how much you want to earn per hour.
