16 Satisfying Examples Of Perfect Handwriting

Diply 29 Dec 2017

Full disclosure: I am a stationery addict. In particular, I am fond of fountain pens and inks. I'm even learning calligraphy.

To say handwriting is kind of my thing would be a bit of an understatement.

That said, in this age of digital communication, I think everyone can appreciate the soothing art of some really great penmanship.

1. This person wrote their mom's name in the snow to thank her for Christmas dinner.

Mom busted her butt to make a great dinner, so why not show one's appreciation with a nice gothic font?

2. It's doesn't have to be fancy calligraphy, either.

Sometimes just receiving a card or gift allows you to appreciate the simple beauty of the giver's everyday handwriting. It's a lost art, really.

3. Having a unique handwriting style can really make your work stand out.

Look how uniform this essay is, and yet it's full of personality. Especially where the student crossed out the word "acts" only to write it again neater.

4. Oh sure, anyone can write neatly on paper at a desk, but writing on a wall increases the difficulty. 

Reddit | vanillagueriller

I know my handwriting — which has been described as "pretty" or "cool", but never "neat" — just falls apart when writing on a whiteboard.

5. But don't fret if your day-to-day handwriting isn't that great.

Be like this person, who finds joy in how perfect this number 7 turned out. Take pleasure in the small things.

6. Or go even smaller and appreciate how perfect this comma is.

It's beautiful. It looks like something typed on a computer. It should be saved and framed as the comma all others should aspire to be.

7. Writing out the lyrics to your favorite songs is a great way to practice.

If you want to improve your handwriting, this is way more fun than copying drills. Plus, you get some sweet art out of it!

8. I bet this person is always asked to update the signboard.

I know that if I was their boss and saw what they could do, I'd never be happy with my own sad attempts at promoting the current sales ever again.

9. Here's another example of an impressive whiteboard, this time with smaller text.

Reddit | TomFumbidill

Just don't read the text. The handwriting is super satisfying, but the words are clearly part of some medical practice. "Severe pain", "heart attack", etc.

10. These microeconomics notes are to die for!

Reddit | DylanArthurWrites

Besides the very satisfying use of color, I think my favorite part is the underlining. Look how they perfectly bisected the line for each letter that dropped below it.

11. A lovely gothic quote in the sand!

It's a bit tough to read at that angle, so here's what it says: "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new," which is attributed to Albert Einstein.

12. Just some beautiful chalkboard lettering art.

Lettering is a different art than penmanship. It's really "drawing" the words rather than "writing" them, but it's so lovely and calming. This example is just so wonderful.

13. Now this is attention to detail!

Not only did this Harry Potter fan make a wonderful reproduction of Harry's Hogwarts letter, but they even made sure to do it in green ink!

14. Yep, it's another whiteboard.

But really, can you blame me? Besides looking great, this sign is really making me crave some waffles smothered in pure maple syrup. BRB, I need to go have some breakfast.

15. The most important thing to remember is that it's never too late to improve.

This user posted a before and after, explaining that an accident forced them to learn to write left-handed. In two years, this was the result of constant, careful practice.

16. It will never cease to amaze me the things that creative people can make with just about anything.

Reddit | Comikiki

I can't even squeeze ketchup on the plate where I want it, let alone make something this beautiful.

17. Who could even be upset about this? The fact that it's so beautiful kind of cancels out the fact that it's not allowed.

Reddit | proximaldookie

Don't you think? I'd be okay with seeing this every day.

18. Again, who is this talented?! Do you know how hard highlighters are to use?

Reddit | SkateReubeno

I am very impressed, this is lovely. Pretty in love with the highlighter pink, I've always been a fan.
