    English signboards

    May I ask you about English signboards written vertically?


    http://www.geocities.jp/hirose_translations/aaa.html


    Which one is more common, the one on the right-hand side or the one on the left-hand side?
    Thank you in advance.

    The one on the left is not written vertically, but horizontally and the whole board rotated. Only the right hand one is written vertically.
