To rephrase a popular saying: the sweetest-sounding word to a man is his name. And there’s just something in each and every one us that make us delighted to have it marked on our possessions. This is where monogramming takes its charm. Basically composed of one or more letters, monograms have been widely used identification designs since time immemorial to mark status, power, skills, and ownership throughout different periods of history.
With the rise and fall of their significance, there came a time when monogramming was left only to the privileged and the gifted. However, modern technology has made monogramming more accessible and affordable to many and is often used as a creative form of expressing one’s personal style. You can find monograms almost anywhere: logos, cars, household furnishings, shirts, event invitations such as weddings etc.
