Printing your name just means writing it in capital letters. Unlike signatures, which are usually written in cursive or scribbles, making them difficult to see, the print name just requires you to write extremely precisely and without linking the letters, so your writing looks like printed text!
Title cases are words that start with capitals, such as "Mr," "Mrs.," "Dr.," or "Prof.". These words are called titles because they are used to indicate who is giving a speech, writing a book, etc. The print title is obtained by writing over the image of the original title page.
Titles can be written in any case at the beginning of a sentence, but only lowercase words follow it.
Here are some examples of titles: "Mr.", "Mrs.", "Dr.", and "Prof.". "The President", "A History of America".
All these titles should be written in caps. Don't worry about spelling mistakes when printing your name, since this will be seen only by you!
If you want to include your job title on the title page, use uppercase letters too. For example, if you are a professor, then write "Professor" here. However, there is no need to write "Professor John Smith" - people will understand who is being referred to.
Printing your name is simply defined as writing your name in capital letters. Writing should not be done in cursive or with a signature. For example, this writing, if on paper, would be print or block lettering. Benjamin Franklin printing his name in Philadelphia on some of his papers.
Writing one's name is easy - for men it's just put a "Mr." or a "Sir" before the name (or both). For women it is similar but usually only a single "sir" is needed because there is no female equivalent to "mr."
Writing one's name in full every time one uses it is tedious and often ignored. Names are important, therefore, people tend to save money by buying cheap name-tags at shops. Or they go without names altogether by signing autographs or using first names alone.
But what happens when someone ignores your attempts at print naming? Well, sometimes they might get a nickname instead! The Harry Potter books have readers call Harry "Harry Potter" because he always writes his name in full including his surname. But some people only know him by his first name so they call him "Potter" too.
Nicknames can also be used as replacements for names that aren't written out fully.
If this is the case, you are not alone! Unlike signatures, which are often written in cursive or scribbles and thus difficult to read, PRINT NAME demands you to write extremely clearly and without linking the letters.
The form office may ask for your printing instructions because they can't print out forms by themselves. They will also need to know your address so that they can send you information about your claim. Finally, they will need to know how you want them to spell your name.
Capitalizing your first name only is common when you use your full name on documents filed with agencies that require names to be printed in capital letters (such as social security cards). Filling out forms with "print my name as it appears on my ID card" or something similar will work fine.
Writing your name in all caps is commonly used in formal situations such as applications for jobs, school papers, and reports. In general, printing your name means writing it in a way that others can easily recognize it.
3 responses Printing your name involves writing it by hand. Someone typing your name is not acceptable. Don't use cursive handwriting if you want to be as readable as possible. Standard printing style is best.
Your name can be typed on a keyboard but only two people I know have done this - my father and brother. They both agree that it doesn't look right when someone else does it. They say it looks like they're trying to be funny or original, when all they are doing is copying someone else's style.
My father has also told me that if you go to a job interview and they ask you to write your name, don't do it manually. Use your computer instead. It will save time and make you look more professional.
He says it's also unprofessional if someone else writes your name in an email or on a document. Again, use your computer for these tasks too.
He has also warned me not to write my name in Chinese because only people from China can read it!
The main thing is don't copy other people's handwriting. It makes you look unoriginal and not so smart.
