Thanks to Pilot Corporation of America for sponsoring this post. All opinions are honest and my own. I’ve been obsessed with these pens since high school.
My whole life I have envied people who had beautiful handwriting and could create beautiful designs with it. It was just far too intimidating to me. That is until I watched a calligraphy demo at Pilot Pen G2 party with some wonderful bloggers.

I never realized I could create beautiful fonts from using my favorite Pilot Pen. We all have that pen we go to and G2 have been mine for years.
My handwriting has always been something I wish I could improve on. I just don’t have the patience for it sometimes. However, I learned to use your handwriting faults to your advantage. If it’s a little shaky – embrace it! Your handwriting is yours alone, so add your personality into it.
Use two different fonts to make your work pop. If you want to make gift tags or signs, two different fonts really help bring the look together. For example, pair a romantic cursive with simple font.
You can find a variety of colors in the Pilot Pen line to jazz up your gift tags, planner, cards, or whatever your heart desires.
Start with creating the biggest elements first. Then, you can go in and add embellishments to personalize each piece. Create your shadows and fill it in as you see fit.
I had no idea I could create calligraphy with my go-to pen and without special equipment. I have been practicing my heart out trying to nail down my style.
The Pilot G2 pens write so flawlessly. They help me stay organized in my business life and give me the freedom to be creative as well. It’s no wonder they’re America’s #1 selling pen. The ink is specially formulated using pigments to give the most beautiful color.
