On all products we ask you to enter the monogram as you wish it to appear. 


A traditional monogram is a person’s first name initial, last name initial and maiden (or middle) name initial.  Traditional Example:  Elizabeth Jane Smith

Masculine monograms are a gentleman’s first name initial, middle name initial and last name initial in a block style font.  Masculine Example:  Andrew Thomas Smith


For a couple’s monogram the proper order would be the wife’s first name initial, married surname initial and the groom’s first name initial.  Couple’s Example:  Elizabeth and Andrew Smith

Many of our products come from relationships we have with other vendors and once the order is placed, they will finalize the order and ship direct to you thus avoiding any delay in getting the product to you.
