Hand Lettering takes practice but can be very rewarding! To start you must give yourself three lines drawn lightly in pencil. The top line is the uppercase height of the letter. The middle line is called the x-height, which is where all lowercase letters reach. The bottom line is the baseline where your letters stop.
