Typically, a monogram is an artistic design that comprises three letters. But, there is no such rule that a monogram should comprise only three letters. This is why we often find some monogram designs that have one letter or two letters with a decorative border. The correct order of the letters of a monogram design is- the first name initial, last name initial and middle name initial, with the last name initial in a slightly larger size in the middle of the monogram.

Monogram has been around us for many decades and it’s a popular craft. Weddings are a popular event or occasion that use monogram designs to decorate various items. When creating monogram for a married couple, the common construction is the woman’s first name initial, the couple’s married last name and the husband’s first name, with the initial of the couple’s married last name in a slightly larger size in the middle of the monogram!

Monogram designs can be created with various tools, such as stamps and embossers. Monogram rubber stamps can be used on a wide range of materials at a number of events. Some of the most popular monogrammed crafts include, envelopes, photo albums, gift boxes, wrapping papers, note cards, custom letterheads, stationery seals, scrapbook pages, guest books, decorative artwork and much more.

If you want to get a personalized monogram stamp, you can order it at your local craft shop. However, doing this online would save you lot of time. There are several online retailers providing monogram stamps which are very innovative and stylish! Other monogramming options include embossing . You can create raised design of your monograms with the help of an embosser as well.
