Although subtle, a monogram adds a hint of luxury to even the simplest gifts. Whether for yourself or someone special, the addition of a monogram lets the recipient know that you not only hand-picked that gift, but that you took the time to make it even more personal and one-of-a-kind.
Because the monogram adds so much to the experience of gift giving (and receiving), we want to be sure that you’re picking the right monogram. The etiquette of selecting the right monogram can be tricky, even for us–and we’re professionals! And because our customers are constantly writing us with questions about the propriety of monogramming, we decided to create a simple guide to personalization no matter the occasion.
With our guide, we hope to direct you in some of the more common and traditional monogramming rules. This doesn’t mean that you can’t get creative—there is no right or wrong way to craft your monogram!
