Your poor handwriting isn't your fault…
The looped cursive handwriting most of us were taught was simply not designed to accomplish the necessary combination of legibility, speed, and ease.

Italic handwriting is easy and natural…
Rhythmic patterns of sloped elliptical shapes follow the natural movement of the hand. These handsome letterforms are as easy to write as they are to read.

Write more legibly…
These simple, narrow, slightly sloping letters were designed for both legibility and speed. Italic is a fast, and efficient and practical writing style that eliminates the loops and flourishes of conventional handwriting.

Send handwritten notes you can be proud of…
Friends and business associates will appreciate receiving legible and distinctive handwritten messages.

No more hand cramps or broken pencil points…
New in this completely handwritten, revised edition of Write Now is an ergonomically efficient alternative pen hold offering relief to those individuals who tend to grasp their writing instrument too tightly.
