Monogram Guidelines

Single initials are commonly used to personalize today.  However, the three letter monogram is the most popular.  Script lettering is the most widely used and is considered the most formal.  Block lettering tends to be more masculine and has almost a contemporary feel.  Below are our suggestions regarding monograms.

Individual Monogram

A traditional monogram for an individual is 3 letters, with the letters appearing in the following order – First, Last, Middle.  An example for Anna Smith (Maiden name) Connor is below.

 Traditional Monogram

If initials are preferred (all letters are the same size), then the order is First, Middle, Last.  Classic Block and Casual Block are the font options for initials.  An example for Jackson Kyle Little is below.
