Reader’s Question: Writing Business Names

“How does one express a business name in fiction…in italics, quotes or just plain with capital letters?”

Thanks for your question, Judith!

Business names are treated the same as a person’s name: initial caps. If the name includes unique capitalization or characters, reproduce them as accurately as possible: iPad, UPS, FedEx, Yahoo! and so on.
