Using Clementine Sketch

It’s no secret that I love the font Clementine Sketch. I’ve been using it on my templates for almost five years. It’s such a fun and versatile font and it looks great on layouts. However, one thing that I have noticed is that a lot of people don’t read the file that comes with it explaining how to use it properly. Steph has mentioned it before, but I thought I would quickly show you the right and wrong way to use this fun font.

This is what I see done a lot. See where those red arrows are pointing? Those ends are open when they should be closed. Here is what the font is supposed to look like:

It’s super easy. All you need to do is this:

1. When you are starting a new word, the first letter needs to be typed like you would a capital letter (this font doesn’t actually have capitals, but you press shift+letter like you would a capital). When you do this, it closes the first letter.

2. When you finish a word, you have to add shift + 6 (like you would a ^ symbol). This closes the word.
