18 lovely letterers to follow on Instagram

18 Letterers to follow on Instagram / jones design company

Instagram. The place where I keep up with family and friends, fellow bloggers, get fashion inspiration, drool over gorgeous homes and darling babies and admire talented photographers.

Also, the place where I’m consistently in awe of lovely lettering.

I follow quite a few letterers and calligraphers on instagram. Each one has her unique style and receives lots of double-taps from me.

If you love pretty lettering, great quotes, beautifully styled photos and even a few in-process videos (which I watch on repeat), you’ll want to follow these 18 letterers on instagram.

Here are a handful of my favorites, in no particular order.

Do you follow any letterers/calligraphers on Instagram that I missed? I’d love to hear your favorites!

    Molly Suber Thorpe is amazing. She is found at plurabellestudio.com. I just devoured every word of her new book, “Modern Calligraphy.” Now I practice on everything! :)

    These are all wonderful. I sincerely think they are beautiful, or wacky, or interesting, but I’m surprised that I can’t make out the words of @fabulousfete. Perhaps I’m over-thinking and the top line is just design, but I rather doubt that. I assume the people to whom these envelopes are addressed can decipher the lettering because it is their name, so maybe it doesn’t matter if anyone else can. Thank you for the post, and a thank you to all those who’ve left a reply with suggestions of other letterers’ work.

    I would love to add Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls to this list. I have been a big fan of her work since she first began contributing to Martha Stewart Living magazine many years ago.

    I do hand-lettering, too. My Instagram isn’t very good yet (still working on my photography skills, haha!), but I love hand-lettering and learning from others who do it, too. You can find my page @rwrdesigns (I have an Etsy shop, too). I also really love @bugaboobeardesigns. She is so talented and creative!

  24. Robin February 17, 2016 at 7:52 am #

    You should replace the one from Design Roots with the corrected version that is now on her IG account. The original one has a spelling error. ;) Such beautiful lettering!

  25. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul February 17, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    If you like watching calligraphy @antiquariandesign just did a series of each letter of the alphabet. It’s mesmerizing.
