Don’t you love monograms? Since as far back as the early Greek and Roman times, rulers used their 2-letter monograms on coins and other currency to identify the ruler and the region. In the Middle Ages, artists, like Rembrandt, signed their pieces with their initials. And, the Victorian era aristocracy often used the monogram to show their high rank in society.
Today, no need to be royalty or a ruler to use a monogram! Monograms are widely used on many types of products, especially on personal stationery. The three-initial monogram is the most popular style today and gained popularity as far back as the 18th century so this is a very old yet current tradition.
Today, monograms are an extremely popular and very stylish option and are everywhere from clothing to home decor, plus of course on notecards and other printed items. A monogram creates a very individualized and stylish imprint. And everyone has their own monogram! It’s a great option for men, women, teens and children.
A monogram is the art of combining initials together. The initials represent an individual’s or a couple’s name(s). Personalized Monogrammed Notecards are ideal for many types of correspondences including uses for thank you cards, personal notes, business correspondence and more. Monogrammed stationery creates a beautiful statement and can evoke a feeling of elegance but can also be used as a fun or casual imprint on a colorful note card.
A monogram is like a little work of art that is truly your own and creates the perfect canvas for note cards. There are many different printing techniques available for monogrammed note cards including digital imprinting, thermography, blind embossed and engraved.
How Do You Create a Monogram?
A traditional monogram is typically 3 letters and represents the user’s name or a couple’s married initials. Here is a short guide to the correct order of your monogrammed letters:
For a couple like Julie and Robert Gold, you would enter the monogram order as JGR. The woman’s first name initial is typically on the left … the man’s first name initial is typically on the right… and the last name initial appears larger and in the center.
For a single person’s monogram, like Betsy Hope Friedman you would enter the monogram order as BFH. The individual’s first name initial is typically on the left … the middle name initial is typically on the right… and the last name initial appears larger and in the center.
