Hello friends,

I recently had a professional card printed to 200 copies.

The personnel of the store that I made the card, did a mistake and wrote on the card the abbreviation of Master of Science (I have a master’s degree) with small “s” and not with capital “S” (I live in Europe, I know that in the US the above abbreviation is used to be MS).

Namely,

“Msc” and not “MSc”.

I consider that the correct is “MSc” with capital “S”.

Do you think that the abbreviation with small “s” is OK?

Do I need to have my card printed again?

Thank you in advance.

People who count - who you want to be taking note of your card - will probably think that you have poor attention to detail or, worse, don't actually realise the mistake.

If it were me, I'd ditch the dodgy cards and make new ones.

Friend chris,

Thank you for the reply.

I would like to inform you that I finally printed again the card at the same store.

The problem now is the use of comma after the profession title, because I said to them to add one.

For example:

The correct is "Name, Engineer MSc" or "Name, Engineer, MSc"?

I searched on internet and I found that the use of comma is the more common option.
