Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL TURNAROUND TIME FOR MY ITEM?
Please allow 2-3 days for your item to be monogrammed. If you need an item sooner, please call and we will try to accommodate your needs. You may be charged a small fee for a rush delivery.
CAN YOU MONOGRAM ITEMS THAT ARE NOT BOUGHT FROM YOUR STORE?
Yes! We can monogram virtually anything! If you would like something monogrammed from an outside store, you can do this one of two ways: You can mail the item in with the monogram, font type, and thread color (if you can send in a swatch of the color you want, that is very helpful). You can also bring it to our Shoppe and we will help you pick your font type and thread color. Either way is fine.

Please be sure to double check spelling before placing your order. Once your order is placed, changes may be made but cannot be guaranteed. Thank You for your understanding of this policy.
WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO LIST INITIALS FOR A MONOGRAM?
When selecting a style for your monogram, the order of initials varies according to the style. When the center letter is taller than the others, the order of initials is traditionally first/last/middle. For example, say your name is Laura Marie Clark, the monogram would be LCM. For styles in which all letters are equal in size, the order of initials should be first/middle/last. In this case, the monogram would be LMC. See our monogram guidelines for details.
Monograms are a personal preference! For example, for traditional couples, some people believe that the man goes on the left, as the saying is “Man and Wife”. Some people believe that the woman goes on the left because in a traditional wedding ceremony, the woman stands to the left of the man. Either way is perfectly acceptable. In both cases, the common last initial is larger in the middle. For example, Edward and Cynthia Jones is EJC or CJE. For men, most people do the three initials straight across: James Edward Vaughn would be JEV. For women, the last initial is still larger in the middle: Morgan Rene Smith would be MSR. It’s completely up to you! Please make sure that you check the order of your letters before submitting your order. We aim to please and will monogram your letters in the order that they are typed. If you would like them straight across, please specify that in the comments section of your order. This will ensure that you receive the monogram you want!
CAN I HAVE MY COMPANY'S LOGO EMBROIDERED ON SOMETHING?
Yes, we are able to digitize and embroider logos. If you have a logo you would like us to embroider, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or bring us a picture of the logo and we can discuss your embroidering options. There is a one-time digitizing fee for this service. Please call for information and quotes.
WHAT MONOGRAM DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR INFANTS OR SMALL CHILDREN?
For baby boys, we love the Evening News or Primary School font for names and initials. For baby girls, we love the Daisy font for names and initials.
WHAT MONOGRAM DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR WEDDING ITEMS?
For fancier initials, we recommend using Snow or Bridal Path. We do have some fancier interlocking fonts available. For a simple, yet formal look, Select font is also a great pick. If you would like a fancier font, please call to discuss.
