Everything you need to know about monogramming

If you're familiar with the art of monogramming, you know there are so many different ways to personalize your products and to get everyone on the same page, we've created a quick guide to everything you need to know about monograms...

What is a monogram? 

A monogram is one or more letters that represent an individual's or couple's initials. These letters can be intertwined in a traditional monogram, read straight across in the natural sequence of a full name, or each represent an initial from one or more parties. Monograms are commonly seen on garments, accessories, handbags, jewelry, and purses! 

What's the purpose of a monogram?

A monogram is for everyone - a college student on a budget, a newlywed bride celebrating her initials, a married couple, men's fashion, and the list goes on! Monograms are so much more than a vinyl sticker or embroidery design; they're an expression of style and art, a fashion statement, and an attention-getter!  

What kinds of monograms are there out there? 

There are several different monogram combinations, but our Customization Style Guide is a great place to start (snapshot below) if you're interested in monogram etiquette. Be sure to use the monogram previewer on to help you select your favorite monogram style!
