The placement of the ® symbol might vary. Most commonly, the ® is placed in the upper-right or the lower-right corner. In some cases, the ® is levelled with the mark itself.

Simply put, the purpose of the symbol is to indicate the trademark has been officially registered with an IP office, and any placement where the connection to the mark is clear is fulfilling this purpose.

There is also no particular requirement regarding font size; however, most commonly, a superscript (raised) font is used.
