google maps v3 custom icon

Custom icon customicon.pngDefault icon defaulticon.png
You see how the letter label for the custom icon is misplaced.
Where and how can I access the position settings for this letter.
Note that all is swell if not using a custom icon and also this custom icon is the exact same size as the default.

I would need to be in front of the computer to show you the default image SVG but the custom icon is a PNG file that's exactly as you see it above.

The defective PNG icon is created by letter overlaid over it or the misplaced letter is part of the custom PNG?

dgrafxAuthor Commented:
The former - misplaced overlay

I wouldn't ask why the letter is misplaced if I had made a custom icon with a misplaced letter

Thanks - I appreciate your time but I didn't want to go that route.
Here is the answer I was looking for:

marker.setIcon({
                  url:'assets/gmaps/dotless-blue.png',
                  labelOrigin: new google.maps.Point(11,12)
                  });
