Custom Monograms are a beautiful addition to your wedding and home decor. Once the design is complete, the monogram is yours to use as you wish! It can be used on everything you can imagine, from invitations and stationery to napkins and glassware. You’ll also be able to use your new monogram in our Shoppe for items we provide in-house, like our gift wrap, tags, and cutting boards. The possibilities are endless!

Planning to use a monogram design for your wedding? If you want to follow wedding etiquette, a 2-letter monogram design is recommended for everything leading up to the wedding, most commonly using a bride and groom’s first initials. A 3-letter monogram, including your last name initial, is then used for your wedding and reception. Many choose to use a 2-letter monogram throughout, break etiquette and use a 3-letter monogram for everything, or design both monograms (see our Pre and Post Wedding Monogram Set option). Whatever fits you is perfect!

Our monogram turn around time is typically 4 to 6 weeks, once the monogram details are confirmed on our calendar and the sketch process has begun. If you have a tight timeline and need a design soon, let us know and we’ll check our schedule. (A rush fee of $100 will be added to your monogram invoice, if rush scheduling is possible.)

Monograms are not for resale or for use on products for resale.

Any surround, wreath, or shield included with your design is not to be separated for use without your monogram. Surrounds, wreaths, and shields are for personal use only and not for resale.

Please note that monogram pricing is subject to change upon complexity of work. Projects that require quotes, outside of pricing shown here, will be provided with confirmation of design details. During the monogram design process, any changes or additions will be quoted before moving forward.

  • First Step: Submit our monogram form with your contact information and details for the letters/initials in your monogram. Provide details on the style monogram you would like Allison to create. We recommend using our Popular Monogram Style guide for reference, but anything else you would like to email for inspiration is welcome. Whatever points Allison in the right direction for your unique monogram design!

  • Second Step: Once your information is confirmed and put on our calendar, Allison will design your monogram in a sketch proof and send it to you for notes. Sometimes the monogram is exactly what you want, but we know that sometimes changes are needed to make a monogram perfect. That’s why you have 2 sketch proof revisions included in the design process. (Additional sketch proofs are $50 each.)

  • Third Step: After a sketch is approved, Allison will design your monogram in ink! When finished, you will receive the monogram artwork through email in print ready, black and white files (JPEG, PDF, and EPS files). You can then use your monogram on anything and everything, now and in the future!

PLEASE NOTE: Monogram artwork is provided in file forms that are ready for printed items and any product requiring a vector file. Designs are not ready for embroidery and must be digitized to create a stitch file for embroidery use. We recommend working with a professional embroiderer to translate your monogram artwork for pillows, towels, and other stitched embroidery uses. If you have your own embroidery machine, we recommend this website to digitize your monogram for personal use: http://advanceddigitizing.com
