Thanks for submitting your question.
How small should the initials be on a mans dress shirt?
* Traditionally, the initials should be small enough to be discreet, but large enough to be read 1/4" - 5/16" is normal. We have two petite styles that include both of these sizes.
Where can they be placed?
* Placement on the top of the wrist, and from 1" - 1 3/8" toward the buttonhole from the center of the cuff.
You might be interested in our Monogram Manager, which includes 15 transparent templates for monogram placement - there is one for cuffs.
Is it best to use only first and last initial?
* This depends on style and the number of initials in the name - not everyone has a middle initial. When the initials used are all the same height, the traditional letter order is first initial, middle initial, last initial.
