What are small caps?

Put simply; small caps are lowercase letters that resemble uppercase letters:

Aaa Bbb Ccc

As a general rule, operating systems, browsers, and social media sites don't support small caps—instead, they must be installed as separate fonts. There is, of course, a trick—more on that below.

When to use small caps?

Small caps are a subtle way to add emphasis to your writing.

They're an authoritative and official looking alternative to
italics or boldface—and quieter than ALLCAPS.

You can use them wherever you feel it's right, but they have some specific uses too:

Acronyms

They're often used instead of ALLCAPS to print acronyms, preventing them from seeming SHOUTED.

e.g. I love NASCAR. I also love nasa.

am and pm

Though not a rule—many editors prefer to uses small caps for am and pm.

e.g. class starts at 8 am and finishes at 4 pm

At the beginning of a block of text

Some publications use small caps for the first few words of an article or chapter in a book. Usually to help the reader transition from a drop capital into regular lower case letters.

So, how does this generator work?

This generator replaces standard Unicode characters with non-standard ones—mostly characters used in the International Phonetic Alphabet:

International Phonetic Alphabet

ᴀ ʙ ᴄ ᴅ ᴇ ɢ ʜ ɪ ᴊ ᴋ ʟ ᴏ ᴘ ʀ ᴛ ᴜ ᴠ ᴡ ʏ ᴢ

Basic Latin

ǫ s x

Cyrillic

ғ

These characters are not intended to be used as small caps, but in many contexts—including social media posts, bios and email—they're the only option.

Where can you use these?

Everywhere—pretty much.

Social Media

They work on reddit, instagram, facebook, twitter, and other social media sites.

Web Browsers

You can use the small caps generator to name bookmarks and folders in your web browser.
