This is a nice little helper. I found the instructions a little complicated, but after I played with the lettering guide for an hour or so, I figured out how it would best work for me. I use it to draw the lines for lettering cartoons and find it saves me a great deal of time. I can recommend it to anyone who is frequently drawing pencil lines as a preparation for hand lettering in a consistent size.

I bought this item because I am learning calligraphy to do my wedding invitations. The instructions for the lettering guide are very confusing and there aren't any pictures to help explain. Good product, just not sure how to use it. Wouldn't really recommend for a beginner but would work for somebody that actually knows what they are doing.

After searching around town and coming up empty-handed, I was happy to find an Ames lettering guide here on Amazon. The guide is made of durable plastic and comes with a protective plastic sleeve. I use the guide for creating uniform lettering in my zine mock-ups. No complaints.

I ordered this to help make lines for my calligraphy. It is perfect. It makes lines as whatever distance I might want. It does even spaced lines for drafting purposes and uneven yet perfectly regular lines for calligraphy. The tool was received quickly, much more so than the other things that I ordered the same day.

The Ames Lettering Guide is for lettering in comics or graphic novels, and it helps you to draw guiding lines for drawing the letters by hand. It is obviously easier to do lettering with a computer, but lettering by hand has also a certain flair. The Ames tool needs quite a bit of experience to be really useful, so it makes only sense if you plan to do a lot of lettering manually.

Not quite sure why this equipment is called a Lettering Guide. Its a reasonable tool for drawing lines if you have a straight edge like a T-Square to go with it. I have read several reviews of this item, some of which are ecstatic about it's ability to draw straight lines very quickly (with a little practice) but I haven't found any explanation or review on how to do lettering with it.
