  • Is this OK for Zekken?

    I assume the English (romaji) characters will be changed to a default font and size, so my main question is the katakana. Does it look OK? I want everything to look as it should. I studied Japanese language many years ago, and I may have forgotten some rules of how to write things, etc.

    i think is no problem the size by now because when you go to make to the budoshop, or whatever they will make at the precise size (if they know how to make it, like an budoshop)

      I think your Zekken should say "Sharp" in Romanji, down the middle, and "Sony" across the bottom.

      Sorry. Couldn't resist...
      LOL

        I'm not sure of that 100% because my zekken may be made by someone who does not have an intimate understanding of katakana. My primary concern is the positioning of the small 'ya'.

        That's strangely appropriate since my father got our family name off of a television set.

          Yeah the kana is cool, but I would personally maybe make the small 'ya' a tiny bit bigger, and offset it a bit to the right. But that might just be something my boguya does...

            I'm looking for just that kind of precise criticism, thanks.

                OK maybe a tad smaller this time with the 'ya' somewhere inbetween the 1st one and the 2nd one

                シャープ I think it wants to be about half the size of a normal character

                If its too small it'll be easy to think you're called Mr. Ship

                and too big and you'll be Mr. Shiyarp

                  Yes, I think that looks a bit better, with the bigger ya. But I'll agree with D'Artagnan--it's maybe just a bit too big now. Can you do a happy medium, or is this how it's showing up on your word processing program when you type in 'sha'? I tried Microsoft Office, and it didn't come out that big.

                    There are a sound reading and the Japanese reading in Japanese.
                    There is one writing a sound reading in an errand kanji at a Japanese dojo studio.

                        Instead of centre align - try align the small "ya" to the right, which is how they are supposed to be displayed when written vertically. Then you'll have more space make it to the optimal size.

                              I like the first one better. maybe ask E-Bogu what they think.
