What Is It?

What exactly is a monogram? Great question! A monogram is a motif made by overlapping two or more symbols to create a design. Generally, these would be letters or the name of an individual or company.

Why Do It?

Personalized monograms make fantastic gifts for anyone on your list. They’re perfect even for those in your life who appear to have everything already. These are unique and memorable gifts that your friends and family will cherish forever.

How Do They Work?

Monograms are usually done with the initials of someone’s full name. The fun part of designing a monogrammed gift is that you can play with the position of the letters to create whatever look you want. You can go for a more modern look for a kid’s gift or a classic and elegant take on a housewarming gift. Personalized monograms can be done specifically for men or women, highlighting first, last, or full names. The size of the initials can be whatever you want to emphasize that particular name. Basically, you can make your monogrammed unique gift exactly how you want it.

At Stamp Nouveau, we love engraving them on anything and everything we can get our hands on -- whether you want to use wood, leather, metal, or a different substance entirely, chances are you can make the perfect gift extra-special with a personalized monogram! In fact, we think putting initials on a small gift like a set of coasters or a pocket knife can elevate that gift to an entirely new level.
