Japan. The land of the rising sun. Where East meets West. Where technology and tradition collide in a kaleidoscope of brilliant neon lights and muted minimalist landscaping.

Where KFC reigns during the holidays.

Josh Scruggs
Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Josh Scruggs and I’m a full-time font designer at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City.

I also practice hand-lettering and calligraphy, and have been sharing my explorations on my site 26symbols.com since 2007.

When I’m not drawing letters, I love spending time with my wife and two daughters. I have a dog named Rocket who may just eat more paper products than actual food.





One of the best ways to spread holiday cheer to friends and loved ones is by sending them a card. They’re perfect for mailing long-distance, spicing up a present, or just because. Instead of buying cards this year, we’re making our own! It’s the perfect way to add a personal touch. We’re going to show you three easy and adorable ways to make your holiday cards.




The season of giving is in full swing! Today we’re bringing you a fun, creative way from Japan (the land of packaging perfection) to wrap your presents--without using wrapping paper. Instead, we’re going to use paper bags in two cute and fun ways to show you how to transform your gifts from ordinary to extraordinary.

Let's learn how to make these two adorable silhouettes!
