My Favorite Hand Lettering Tools

In the past few months, I've really gotten into hand lettering with brush pens and nibs. On Instagram, a few of you have asked me what I use to achieve these looks, so I figured I'd round up a few of my favorite tools for lettering.

Mostly, for ease, I use brush pens. They're (mostly) inexpensive and low-mess and very transportable, making them my go to option for script lettering. The ink and nib gives me my favorite look, but that can sometimes take a little more practice and time to really get it right. Click through for all of my favorite pens.
