The Essential Calligraphy Ruler

The best designs are often the most simple and master maker and penman, Aquino Silva's Calligraphy rulers are no exception.  I scratched my head trying to think of a simple calligraphy guide solution but nothing I came up with compared to these clever rulers.  If you can't beat em join em! So instead, I decided to stock Aquino's incredible guides, just watch the video to see what I'm talking about.

The Rulers are designed for Engrosser script which is perfect for copperplate and modern calligraphy, and for those who are diving deep into the world of calligraphy we also offer his Spencerian guides.

I call them the Essential Calligraphy Ruler because you'll wonder how you managed without one previously!


  • Each ruler comes in a beautifully designed and printed uncoated paper sleeve.

  • All the way from sunny Macau, I'm the only UK based store to offer them.

Really useful calligraphy ruler

Have used my calligraphy ruler to help me in writing gift tags to go with Christmas presents and am looking forward to using it much more in the future.

This is how you create things which upholds the artist and the art at the core essence . Delighte...

P.s. I have sent you a email but still waiting to hear back from you.
I have purchased the pen which tightens depending on what nib I use. But I seem to have trouble with the mechanism, it's too lose and the nibs keep falling out.
Can I please send it back and get a replacement please?

Thanks Tom
Much appreciated
