The Scratchy Nib


A boutique calligraphy brand based in Delhi, run by me, Juhi Chitra. I make hand-crafted pieces, teach workshops in India, and sell iPad brushes.


Learn brush lettering with my new workbook


Get this printable PDF and print it at home if you want to start learning calligraphy but don’t know where to start. Order a brush pen or two from (or hit your local stationery shop) and you will be doing actual lettering in no time. This workbook is great for both beginners and more intermediate levels.

Want this workbook but based outside India? You can get it from my Etsy shop here.

You can also download free printable guidelines for brush lettering or copperplate practice from the Shop.



Learn Calligraphy on the Blog

I post about learning calligraphy (specially as beginners), lettering workshops and events in the city and where to find the best stationery.

I make each piece on order and work closely with customers to understand their preferences. And being stationery-obsessed, I only use premium materials.



Buy Procreate Brushes for Lettering

If you use the Procreate app on iPad for digital calligraphy, you can get my custom brushes from Creative Market or Etsy.



About Me

I fell in love with calligraphy when I was 15. It only took 12 years (!) to turn that into a professional practice. I focus on improving my skills while being distracted by shiny stationery.
