Though I do return the correct header for a PDF, sometimes Explorer gets confused when downloading... So if you're running Windows, you may need to right-click a link and choose "Save link to disk". Tip number two! Some people may need to turn off the option in Adobe's Acrobat reader "shrink to fit" which may resize the grid slightly to fit your printer's printable area. Tip number three! If you want the hexes aligned with the other edge of the paper, just make your paper size "11 x 8.5" and print the result in landscape mode!

Start with a Sketch: No of course, it took lots of bad sketches to get to this point. Start Forming Letters with the Pen Tool using Sketch as Reference I started placing basic geometric shapes (like circles) in place of where some of my major smooth curves are going to be. You can see I started getting a little more detail in there. I started making my letters solid fills now and used the subtract tool to knock out some of the circles. You can see now that the S is cleaned up. Continue to build the rest of the letters Here is the rest of word Stone in its basic form. This is what the basic form of the word “stone” looks like. Adding Swashes I added a swash underneath the letters to fill the negative space there and balance things out.
