I read it at a T, but I can see how it might look like a J.

 

Have you tried mixing and matching fonts?  Perhaps you could find the letters that look best from several different fonts that comliment each other. Especially if you will mix and match lower case and capitol letter, it may not look like they’re from different fonts.

i can see your dillema. did you try using the s first and then a second? i think compositionally that would look more aesthetic because the s would lean towards the t and the a because of the shape kind of closes the whole thing.i dont know how to articulate it but it just seems like the a’s belly would look better on the outside of the t rather than before it..  the way it is now, it doesnt really flow… i really think it would look so much better if you switch them… and maybe use a font that has less of a slant.. one that the letters would be more upright. and my last suggestion is that the border should not touch the a, or if it does then it should touch the s too, but then it may look too cramped.

 or you could like what rosychicklet said- play with different fonts, maybe a non-cursive t with italicized a and s would work? i could kind of see that actually… 

thats just my 2 cents. i hope it helps!!!

that’s a cute idea with the established dates ๐Ÿ™‚  I think it works, but i’d suggest making the "a" a bit smaller (maybe just one or 2 points smaller) and move it a little more left from the "t" so there’s some more space like there is between the "t" and "s".  I really like the fonts you use!

I absolutely LOVE that final monogram you’ve come up with. The combination of fonts is perfect.
