We updated the Monogramming Service webpage with more information and pictures on our monogramming capabilities.
Monograms are a great way to personalize a gift or commemorative keepsake, not to mention a great deterrent for would-be thieves! They're a popular choice on our wide range of Monogrammable Leather Goods.
NEW! MONOGRAM TEXT DIRECTION, EXPLAINED:
The "Clarendon" and "Custom" fonts are monogrammed differently, because the "Custom" font uses a jig. The jig keeps the letters in a perfect line (just like letterpress text) but prevents us from monogramming it "vertically" as opposed to "horizontally".
This is what a jig looks like:
With the Clarendon font, each letter is individually stamped in, which gives us flexibility in placing the letters vertically...:
The same long product, the Blueprint Tube, monogrammed with our Custom font will necessarily be monogrammed horizontally "like a book spine" instead of vertically because of the jig:
We can do either upon request, but please refer to the Typical Monogram Placement Table to see how it would be done normally.
NEW! CUSTOM FONT "SAMPLER" PHOTO:
We also updated our "sampler" photos of A-Z fonts with our new Custom font set:
We love all the creative monograms you've asked us to do over the years. From pithy little comments, jokes and insults, lots of expressions of love, and everything from the Christian cross to the "bad muthafucka" monogram we did on a barrel bag, we enjoy them all!
How can we make our leather goods personal and special for you?
