Today, we’re all about monograms. We love offering monograms on our baby clothes and gifts. What a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your little one’s special outfit! A gift becomes so much more when embroidered with her name or initials.
Just for fun, here’s a little background information on monograms:
“An individual’s monogram is often a very fancy piece of art used for stationery, for adorning luggage, for embroidery on clothing, and so forth. These monograms may have two or three letters.
A traditional 3-letter monogram has the initial of the individual’s last name (surname) set larger, or with some special treatment in the center, while the first name initial appears to the left of it and the middle name initial appears to the right of it. For example, if the individual’s name is Mary Ann Jones, and Jones is the surname, then the arrangement of letters would be thus: MJA, with the surname initial set larger in the center, the M for Mary to the left and the A for Ann to the right.” – Jeanine Twigg, Author of Embroidery Machine Essentials
At One Small Child, we offer monograms, initials, names and dates on so many of our clothes and gifts. Just look for the words “Can Be Personalized” under the product image. There are a variety of embroidery or engraving options for these items. Simply click into the product page and look for the Personalize Options box to view the options for that specific item. When you click on the Personalize button, all the information you need will pop up, including embroidery placement images, thread color photos and text boxes to enter in your information. So easy!
“A monogrammed gift is a measure of love just like home cooking for friends and family. When you take the time to mark a gift, it makes it profoundly personal.” – Shannon Britton (Southern Proper Monograms)
