"...try using the monogram in the center of the design and then including a special verse or a phrase as a border around it. For example, you can have a bride's monogram in the center of a silver plate, and then the first words of her father’s wedding toast surrounding it. It makes the design even more special."

"Putting your stamp on something doesn’t have to just be your initials. We’ve had customers engrave their full name or signature on special pieces, something that would be fun to apply to linens or stationery as well."

"In the early twentieth century, it was popular to use the husband and wife's first initials and the initial of their last name to create a family monogram of sorts, something that’s come back into style recently. We’ve had customers monogram the initials of a mother and her new baby, and we’ve even heard of roommates monogramming linens with their shared initials. You could also engrave or embroider a simple word or phrase that has meaning to you, a single initial, or even a special date."

"cipher, a style popular in George Washington's time, created by layering initials on top of each other. This gives more of an abstract look if you aren’t into the traditional styles."

"This is not really the time to mix and match styles. A heart shaped Victorian box would be beautiful monogrammed in a fancy script, while modern hotel bedding would call for a clean, block font."
