"The hospital staff calls it a miracle.
I can now communicate my ideas to other physicians.
My wife tells me she can read my love letters.
All of this accomplished by improving the legibility
of my handwriting with Getty-Dubay."
Stephen Caplan, MD
It's so natural and easy to have better handwriting.
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, 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 point
