Monograms are a favorite design among machine embroiderers. Here are some tips for stitching single-letter monograms on your next custom project.
Single letters are one of the most common monogram styles, but what are the rules? These tips are traditional, but modern-day monograms are more relaxed.
Single letters are most often used for the first name initial (children and single women) or the initial of the last name of single men and married couples/partners.
Because these monograms stand alone, there is more room for embellishments, like crystals, and accents, like the butterfly.
Decorative frames are also quite popular and elegant.
Frames set off monograms, especially on table linens.
When using decorative frames, simple alphabets should be chosen so they do not compete with the frame and are easy to read.

In cases when the married couple each keeps their last name, a double-letter monogram can be used.
