Since clients have been requesting more of this lately, I figured I’d elaborate…

Traditional calligraphy, as you may know, is done with either a broad-edged or pointed nib, so that the flow of the lettering has thick and thin lines. You can often see these lines when observing calligraphic hands.

Monoline lettering, on the other hand, does not have these thicks and thins. As Pinterest defines it, “Monoline is a form of lettering in which the strokes do not have the thick and thin variations of regular calligraphy. The pen tip used is round and not chiseled.” Any lettering done in regular pen, felt tip marker, Sharpie, etc. can be considered monoline.

Now you know! 🙂
