What is a monogram?

A monogram is a decorative motif made by overlapping or combining letters.
Monograms are often made by combining the initials of a person’s name or a couple’s names.

What can you monogram?

Maybe the better question is, what can’t you monogram?

You can add monograms to clothing, linens, pillows, backpacks, tote bags, tumblers, and more!

Types of Monograms

Monograms come is all sorts of styles – but most monograms can be divided into two main categories:

  1. Monograms where all three initials are all the same size, aka Block Monograms
  2. Monograms where the center initial is larger.

In Block Monograms, where all of the letters are the same size, the initials are ordered first initial, middle initial, and last initial.

In a Traditional Monogram, where the center initial is larger, the initials are ordered first name, last name, and middle name. The last name initial (the middle letter) is larger than those on the side.

Script and Interlocking Monograms

You can create decorative interlocking monograms by using a fancy script font.

Circle and Diamond Monograms

In this style of monogram, the letters are shaped to fit within the outline of a shape — like a circle or a diamond. The letters may also be framed with a decorative border.

Stacked Monogram

This fun monogram style works best with a 3 letter monogram. The first and middle initial are stacked on top of the other on the left, with the last name initial on the right. The first two initials, when stacked one on top of the other, equal the height of the last name initial.

Block Monogram

In a block monogram, all of the initials are the same height.

Single Letter and Decorative Monograms

Sometimes, you might like to use a single letter monogram. In this case, you can use any type of font — a traditional serif, a fancy script, or even something more decorative.

Personal Monograms and Couple Monograms

A personal monogram consists of three initials: one for the first, middle and last names. If a person doesn’t have a middle name, they can use a dual initial monogram (first initial + last initial) or choose to use their last name initial only.

The initials in a personal monogram can be arranged in two ways. Traditionally, they would be ordered first, last, middle. Or, in a block style monogram, the initials would be ordered first, middle, last.

Many couples choose to use a couple monogram using both of their initials. Couple monograms are especially popular for wedding gifts, like barware, stationery or linens.

If the couple shares the same last name, the woman’s first name initial comes first, followed by the shared last name initial, and then followed the man’s first initial. 

If a married couple shares a hyphenated last name, or a woman decides to keep her given name, the couple’s monogram may look different.

The traditional style monogram, with the larger center initial, is almost always used for joint or couple monograms.
