Course Description

Regular lettering is great and all, but if you crave a little more energy and style in your lettering projects, then you need to learn how to bounce! Bounce lettering is a trendy, quirky way to make your projects look more dynamic, and you can tweak your existing skills to create this whimsical look.

In this course, you’ll learn what makes bounce lettering so special (and tricky). After sharing the materials, I’ll share the rule you need to learn like a pro so you can break it like an artist. Then I’ll give you pointers on achieving balance in your composition before diving into two letter-along projects that are perfect for bounce beginners.

Awesome!

Oh to be as good as Shelby :) One day ….

one of my favorite course! it's simple and accessible yet the result is genius! Bouncy lettering really improves the whole value of any written/artsy project <3.

I really enjoyed this course. Instructions and examples were clear and practical and the feedback was really kind and helpful. It has improved my lettering knowledge and given me confidence to keep practicing.
Thank you Shelby!

This was so helpful! I loved the way Shelby broke down the basics in a succinct way and tips to use while practicing. Lastly, I appreciated Shelby mentioning that everyone is going to have a unique bounce lettering style. As someone who is new to brush lettering in general, I've been copying a lot of what I see. I need that consistent reminder to avoid potential frustration, especially as a beginner!

Shelby is an excellent instructor. She breaks it down to basics. I enjoy her manner of speaking. I am a complete beginner & look forward to using the worksheets to practice. The platform is great, too.

Hi Shelby: I knew little to nothing about bounce lettering before I took your course. Now I have a much better understanding of bouncing letters. You are a great presenter. You are clear and thorough. I also liked the platform itself. It was easy to navigate. And finally, the handouts were very helpful when I was practicing. Thank you. Carol
