Student or Learner
please advice me on the following query.
I am having artwork done for my business cards and on them the designer has spelt England as england but the UK in capitals.
I feel that England should start off with a capital and UK should both be in capitals.
Also can England UK be displayed without a comma or full stop between them.
Please state the correct way that England UK should be displayed on the cards and letterheads.
Is it necessary to include both England and the UK? I would say use one or other, but not both together on a business card.
The reason I was thinking of using UK was because the company has the name then UK Ltd after it and my website address has UK after the company name and then .com.
I guess though that you are right in asking if both UK and England are needed.
Seeing as UK is in the company name, I think I might just be best sticking to England in the address bar without the UK.
What would you suggest?
I agree with your suggestion - just put 'England' as 'UK' is already part of the company name. There's not a lot of space on a business card, and you don't want to clutter it up by saying 'UK' 3 times.
Thank You everyone for your much valid points.
And 'clown' is used this way (at least where I come from) to refer to someone who behaves in a strange and annoying way.
Example: A driver speeds in and out of traffic and pulls in front of your car dangerously.
You yell at him "Get off the road, you effing clown!" or words to that effect.
