(And how to pronounce my name*)

I’m Randy Preising, a lettering artist from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

I spent over 32 years as a Graphic Designer, developing brands, logos, websites and all kinds of printed materials. Over that time, I’ve learned a thing or two (your printer will always fail at the worst time). I’m proud of the things I accomplished, and appreciative of the people I worked with along the way. Now I’m focusing those skills into hand lettering.

“Start before you’re ready”

Steven Pressfield

Is lettering is something you’ve thought about doing but never gotten around to? As Steven Pressfield says in his book Do the Work: “Start before you’re ready”. Progress, not perfection, is the order of the day. And that’s tough coming from a perfectionist like me.

I’m still figuring stuff out, but hopefully you can glean something here and avoid some of the mistakes I made. Through this journey, my aim is to make the process less mysterious, and hopefully a little easier.

*It’s pronounced “Pry-Sing”. Don’t feel bad if you got it wrong. Most everyone does. It’s that “i” before “e” thing.
