What is a monogram?
By rights, my first few examples are aprons for kids. They’re designed for a chef’s name placed before purchasing. It’s a great, fun way to get kids feeling like cooking could be a powerful thing!
Then if you venture further into our products, you will begin to see products with monograms, initials and even more names. So why monograms?
Dictionary.com’s helps us out:
- a design consisting of two or more alphabetic letters combined or interlaced, commonly one’s initials, often printed on stationery, embroidered on clothing, etc.
- a single emblematic or decorative letter; applied initial.
What's your first memories of liking monograms?
Since childhood, I thought of the neighbors with letters on their gates, or names on their towels or pillow cases, as quite happily situated.
I still have a bath towel given to my mother when I was born. Yes, it has my name, Barbara, written in the center of the cutest bunnies. And, yes, I was born in April.
Years later when we married, (some 51 years ago), we received bath towels with my new last name. I would wash them and put them back the same day. That’s how much I loved the feeling.
...and what's so special about monograms?
It was recently I took notice of the unique, custom-made feeling of monograms. We’ve been challenged to buy presents for our grand-children and started to offer gift certificates or check. It didn’t feel the same for us and for them.
There’s got to be that connection to make gift-giving worthwhile. And we’re only scratching the surface with our imaginations.
Well, I have to confess. My recent monogram purchase is not really a gift. It is for our home. It’s on its way, too, so I’m pretty excited! …. a birthday gift for me from Manny! And, I know it’s going to look fabulous in our bright yellow bathroom upstairs!
What do you think I chose?
If you have an interest in monograms and don't have time to design your own, let us know what you'd like to see in the future.
There are so many ideas and so little time. But we are retired … so maybe we have more time?
