My FH is the third. When writing his name out on the invitations, how do I indicate that he is the third?
Joey Leo McIntyre III (haha)
When I picked the script for our invitations, the III looks like three swirly I’s. How else can I write it out? How else could it be worded? Anyone know the “correct” way to write it? I need to get this designed soon. Thanks Bees!!!!

Is there anyway to use a different font just for the III that’s not so swirly? That would certainly make it easier!

You could always use a different font for the III’s? I’ve done it for stuff on designs before and usually it doesn’t look bad (it’s a trial and error thing, lol).

I have found a font that makes it not look so terrible. I just wanted to see if using the three III’s is the right thing to do. It’s just so…blah. lol. Thanks ladies!!

According to technical ettiquette, you’re supposed to word it as John Smith, III. There is no other “proper” way to indicate that he’s a third. If his father and grandfather have passed away, he can choose to drop the III, but other than that, it has to be in Roman Numerals…
See what other fonts will look less awkward, and if you can mix and match so it looks less awkward?

I agree with the other ladies, using a second font is totally the thing to do.
