The Essential Calligraphy Ruler

$19.00 Sale Save

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.

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



Absolutely delighted with this ruler. So handy. Game changer for sure! Best 15 pounds I have invested

Easier getting guidelines on plain papers.

Before getting the calligraphy ruler, I have drawn guidelines with regular ruler, and protractor…. It felt taking forever, and that’s even before I start working on calligraphy.
However, with this calligraphy ruler, I can spend longer time and concentrate on calligraphy itself by shortening the time to get guidelines ready.
I would say this is a vital item for calligraphers who frequently writes on plain paper.

Great service despite Post Office strike

I ordered a calligraphy ruler and was happy that this was despatched in good time. However, it wasn't delivered. Tom's Studio didn't quibble, but said they'd try to get a replacement when new stock arrived. In the meantime, they found a replacement in their office and posted it to me by tracked 48 hour mail. This arrived after 6 days due to the Post Office strike, together with the initial one posted some 19 days before. At all times Tom's Office (Jason) were helpful and responded to me in good time. My wife is now busily drawing up 120 place cards for our friend's daughter's wedding on New Years Eve. Thank you Jason and Tom's Office.
