Monogram Ettiquette & Monogram Guidelines
When you want to give a truly memorable gift, that will become a cherished keepsake, we think there is no better choice than a monogrammed gift or personalized gift. We believe the whole point of a personalized gift is to make it "personal" and special for the person receiving it, and everyone has different preferences. We will happily embroider or engrave the name, initials, monogram or message you'd like in any format you'd like. However, in case you would like something monogrammed according to the monogram etiquette we prefer, we review some of the "monogram guidelines" we follow below.
