as the title suggests... Many people put value on beginning sentences with a Capital letter, and also to spell names with capital letters. Indeed, spelling names in lowercase on address labels has lower readability especially when using handwriting. I often use a mix: spell first name ALL BIG LETTERS then capitalize second name, or reverse, or write some parts in small letters or only with first letter capitalized. And I mix it in some cases if it looks nice: ANChORAGe In handwriting it looks nice since I can increase the non capitalized letters ANChORAGe more looks like this while the h is proportional to the other capitalized letters The big A I write like this but in reverser (from the left upwards). maybe the reason for that is practicing japanese stroke order which goes from left to right (you wouldnt construct kanji or katankana from right to left at all). and it saves 0.06 seconds on average.
