Chinese characters usually have more strokes and are more complecated than alphabets. When your design has Chinese characters or other characters that are not simple please keep the following advice in mind. In the sample of Chinese character below there are 2 points that need to be carefule. In the point circled in blue two strokes are met in one point. If you wish to have space between two strokes please keep at least 0.02 inches (about 0.5mm) space . In the red circled point the rectangle space will be lost and become like the picture on right when rectangle is too small. Please keep at least 0.02 inches for each side of rectangle in this example.
