Contemporary Amy Style calligraphy is a clean, fairly matter-of-fact calligraphy style … but it didn’t start out that way. When I first developed the style in 2013, I gravitated toward calligraphy with plenty of loops and quirks! The very first Amy Style worksheet, released in 2014, reflected that. People loved the loops and flourishes, but I myself was gravitating toward a more serious aesthetic. So, I reduced the playfulness of Amy Style calligraphy in 2015. It didn’t go unnoticed; several learners called me out on it! Today, I’m pleased to announce that I’m bringing the “Classic” Amy Style back as a limited edition worksheet for $5.00: (probably less than) the cost of a latte. And — if you’re a Procreate/iPad user — you can purchase a Procreate exclusive edition!
About Classic Amy Style Calligraphy
Classic Amy Style calligraphy has a pleasing roundness to it. I’ve used it for several commissioned wedding projects, but I also love it for mail art and bullet journal titles!
These place cards were from a 2014 wedding — I really played up the bounce to make them fun and approachable!
The printable Classic Amy Style worksheet is 18 pages long. It is intended to teach you how to create Classic Amy Style calligraphy using a dip pen. First, you’ll begin by practicing letters! I’ve drawn arrows and numbers to show you how each letter is formed, and I included guided practice in the form of three dashed letters.
After you practice letters, you’ll move on to practicing different words. This worksheet set features 20 words that are commonly written in calligraphy, like “Happy” “Birthday” “to” “You”. My hope is that the words you practice will serve you well when you use this calligraphy style to make projects!
This limited edition worksheet set is a little bit different from regular TPK Learn Calligraphy sets. For example, there’s no faux calligraphy practice, and I didn’t include additional Intensive Letter Practice or Intensive Word Practice PDFs. Why? Because this calligraphy set is intended for people who have a dip pen calligraphy foundation. While other TPK worksheets keep a focus on teaching you how to use a dip pen, this worksheet zeroes in on teaching you this specific calligraphy style!
For the first time ever, we made a Procreate-friendly version of a worksheet set! It’s 13 pages long and tailored specifically to practicing Classic Amy Style calligraphy with the Procreate app on the iPad. While I’m all about analog, I recognize that it’s great to have the option to practice on the go with an iPad!
I know how frustrating technology can be, so we made a Welcome to Procreate FAQ page to explain how to easily open the worksheet files on your iPad! Feel free to check it out if you’re on the fence. And please — let me know if you enjoy this Procreate worksheet! If you do, I’d be glad to make Procreate versions of other TPK worksheets available.
Note that both the printable and the Procreate versions of the Amy Style Classic worksheet will expire on Friday, July 5th, at 9:00 PM MDT. After that date, both worksheets will no longer be available in the TPK catalog. They will, however, be permanently available in your TPK account and/or downloadable from your order confirmation email.
If you have any questions about the Classic Amy Style worksheets, feel free to comment on this post or contact me! I’m so pleased to be able to offer this exclusive worksheet set, and I hope that you enjoy it. If you don’t already follow TPK on Instagram, I encourage you to do so! I’ll be reposting learners’ Classic Amy Style work, posting Instagram Live updates, and announcing a Finetec giveaway tied in with this worksheet.
Enjoy the new worksheet, and thanks so much for reading TPK!
