STABILO brush pens

Creative all-rounders not just for handlettering

What is special about a brush pen?

A brush pen like the STABILO Pen 68 brush is a felt-tip pen with a longer and particularly flexible brush tip. It can be used to control the thickness of the stroke by varying the pressure. This is how the characteristic brushlettering script is created.

How does brushlettering work?

In order to achieve particularly beautiful results when lettering, a lot of pressure should be applied to smears in letters, if the letter gradient goes up again, minimal pressure is used. It is important that the pen is held parallel to the torso, as the greatest change in stroke width occurs when pressure is changed.
