Regarding this plate, Mike commented: “This is the kind of thing I really like to create – it’s the Sterling Silver name plate I did for Tim George’s CCA Gun.”
How to do lettering and borders featuring Mike Dubber.
“Yes, students get a dose of lettering in all my classes. I’ve been in the business of lettering for many years and it’s one of those things I never tire of. Beautifully cut letters, monograms and decorative dedications are fascinating to me – and our history is full of great examples. My explanation of the power of good lettering is that you can fool most untrained folks most of the time with poorly designed scrolls, but they were taught about letters starting in the first grade. They recognize poorly designed letters from the start. Several jewelers have come to study lettering and nothing else.” – Mike Dubber
