Topic: Hand Lettering: signs
Hand Lettering Forum -- They are transferring the posts from the old Hand Lettering Forum to the new Hand Lettering Forum. When the project is finished, it will be one of the greatest resources around for tips and technical information related to the sign business.

"The New Forum has a fairly powerful search feature, allowing you to easily find posts on such subjects as: Gold, Varnish, Angel Gild, Sandblasting, Books, and so forth."

A style of shading letters by John Downer
Topic: Hand Lettering: signs
"Here is an illustration to show how the Mock Block shading effect uses the background color as the underside shade color. This is possible when the underside shade is enclosed by the letter (yellow), a side shade (fire red), and a cast shade (purple)."
John Downer, 11.Nov.2004

Hand Lettering Basics
Topic: Hand Lettering: signs
Brush Lettering "During the early '20s to late '40s, books on showcard writing and hand lettering were fairly common. Unfortunately, the demand for hand lettering has lessened and finding good basic tutorials is difficult. The images in this section are from a 1942 book by C.R. Havighorst called Simplified Show Card Writing."
