    My handwriting sucks and I'm going to spend the summer practicing a new style.

    If you have good handwriting, could you post a sample of your alphabet, upper and lowercase, with numbers? A sample pangram would also be really useful:

    "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

    I know some of you have got to have nice handwriting. I want to see what different styles there are and come up with a personal style. Thanks!

    Too many years in engineering led me to print everything in all caps.

    I second the OP. I'd love to see some nice cursive as mine looks like an 8 year old's (or worse).

    Buy a fountain pen with an italic nib.

    This gives you good feedback when you are shaping letters.

    Check out this site:

    I moved to italic, and it improved my handwriting quite a bit.
