4mm Copperplate Guidelines

Download and print these 4mm Copperplate Guidelines to use in your calligraphy practice. These lines are great for making sure your ascending and descending strokes are consistent. The guideline in the center of the x-height is great for making sure your strokes begin and connect where you want them to. If you’re just starting out with Copperplate Script, try the 1cm Guidelines first!
