Lettering FAQs – What’s the best way to hold a brush pen?

Q: What’s the best way to hold a brush pen?

This is how you want to hold your brush pen at an angle so it will write smoothly and won’t fray.


Holding the pen like this straight up and down makes it harder to write and will make your pen fray quickly.

A: I recommend trying to hold it at a 45 degree angle. This will help you to write smoothly and make it so that your pens won’t fray quickly.  Here are some videos of showing how to hold the angle the right way.

This set shown is the Faber-Castell BRIGHTS Set that you can find in our shop. 🙌🏻 Xoxo 💛-Lisa
