Simply Lettering Magazine | A First Issue Review

Did you know that there are planning and bullet journaling magazine out there? I had no idea until CraftStash offered me the first edition of Simply Lettering Magazine for free! I have never had a magazine before and would have loved some tips and tricks for lettering. Now that I have received the Simply Lettering Magazine, I want to share my review and experience with you!

The Simply Lettering Magazine

My first impression of the magazine was its emphasis on lettering. I knew that the Simply Lettering magazine would have an emphasis on lettering; however, I went into my experience with zero expectations. Upon this realization, I became incredibly excited. Naturally, I first notice the pens and lettering guides before moving onto the rest of the magazine.

Lettering Guides

Of course one of the first things I noticed when I received my package was the pens and lettering guides. I have never used lettering guides but have had an interest in doing so for a long time. So, naturally, the first thing I did was unpackage the pens and play around with the lettering guides. I already had a lot of the knowledge and skill presented via these guides; however, for someone who is newer to learning brush lettering, these guides would be hugely useful! Of note is the vast types of guides offered in the magazine--there are so many!

Additionally, I was surprised by the quality of the brush pens. Even though I only got black and grey pens, they were far better quality than I expected. Not only did they write incredibly smoothy, but the ink coloring was so vibrant! Items that generally come with magazines are cheaply made; but, these pens are the exception.

The Rest of the Magazine

After playing around with the pens, I browsed the remainder of the magazine. I loved the visual vibe of the magazine; naturally, featuring various fonts, articles, images, and guides!

Without giving too much away, some of my favorite articles in the magazine include the featured artist: Kirsten Burke, shadowing guides, tips from experts, planner or journal page ideas and tips, and lastly, greeting card how-to!
