What is a monogram? A monogram gives insight about an item and tells a story. It suggests who we are, as well as dresses up items like luggage, linens, and totes in a beautiful way. It also shows thought behind a beautiful gift.
A monogram consists of a person's initials — usually a variation on the first,
middle, and last name. Much has been written about proper monogram etiquette.
At M&J Monograms, we offer monograms displayed in several ways on various products. It’s all how you can make your own monogram tell a story about you.
