MONOGRAM VS. EMBROIDERY

What’s the Diff?

These terms are confusing to most. Embroidery is the stitching. Monograms are the three letters that are your initials. Customers often ask us to “monogram a name”. A name can only be embroidered, not monogrammed. So, when you are choosing fonts or monograms, please keep in mind to only choose a monogram style if you are submitting initials. If you are submitting a name, choose a font style.

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 the name, initials, monogram or message you’d like in any format. However, in case you would like something monogrammed according to the monogram etiquette, listed below we review the “monogram guidelines” we like to follow:
