I am ready to put my recipe cards together. and I noticed I abb, 4 teaspoons with 4 tsps. that's how my recipe reads. not sure if that is a correct. I rather waste my cardstock and ink instead of having to do them all over again. pretty soon I am going to hate making these cookies.

thanks

that would work for me. I routinely have seen the following abbreviations for teaspoon(s)

tsp
t
tsps
ts

I would not have any problem knowing that abbreviation was for teaspoons.. I think you are good to go!

I have always used the lower case "t" for teaspoon, and the uppercase T for Tablespoon. That keeps it extra clear for me. Even when I add some letters - "tsp" and "Tbsp" .

I abbreviate the same: tsp and Tbsp

I see no issues with you abbreviating

looks okay to me also.

If I see tsp, I go with teaspoon
If I see tbsp, I go with tablespoon

Teaspoon in most cookbooks is tsp

Tablespoon in most cookbooks is Tbsp.

Its even this way on most measuring spoons too. so I think you'll be just fine.

This is how I was taught in school to do it and a lot of recipes will have the T. for tablespoon and the t. for teaspoon especially school, church, bazaar cookbooks. I am fine with however it is done. Thanks for asking. I agree with you. I would rather waste a few sheets of cardstock rather than the whole layout. BigGrin
