How are monograms normally placed? TOP
- The most common monogram design is the 3 letter monogram with Last name initial in the center with the first name on the left and middle or maiden name on the right.WLB
When 3 letter monograms are done using same size lettering, the monogram would read just as the name...Susie Jane Medlin....SJM This is customary for Block lettering, very small monograms and for a man's block style monogram. Monograms will be stitched with the center letter as the larger initial for all Fonts except Block unless instructed otherwise. All monograms are done in the order they are typed.
For wedding gifts or gifts including both husband and wife's initials, it all depends on the etiquette book you read! Traditionally, many folks say linens are monogrammed with the initials of the lady of the house. "Emily Post" adheres to the rule "Ladies first" with Ladies first name initial, Married last name initial-larger in center, and Husabands first name initial on the right. Some references state the man's first name initial goes on the left, the couple's last name initial in the center and the wife's first name initial on the right as in Mr & Mrs. ....that one's easy to remember...the Lady is ALWAYS right! :) As one can see, it really is personal preference and most people will monogram a couples initials the way their mom says is correct. Of course, rules are made to be broken and who listens to mom anyway...so at LilyPad, we stick with the "Emily Post" reccomendation of ladies first unless otherwise requested!
- PLEASE be specific in how you want your monograms stitched. Monograms will be done in the order they are typed by the customer when the order is placed. If the initials are typed LBG, monogram will be stitched with the center letter as the larger initial for all Fonts except Block unless instructed otherwise. Block lettering is stitched same size. If you prefer all letters same height with any other font please instruct for it to be completed in that manner. Spindle Font is all upper case and used primarily for 3 letter monograms.
We cannot be responsible for typed errors. We will gladly accept responsiblity for errors made by Lilypad but only when specific instructions are given and not followed.
Again, Please be as specific as possible with your wishes on monogram style and letter placement.

The monogram will either be placed on the bag itself or on the top flap based on the design of the bag. Some bags with designs on the flap closure do not have adequate space for names, especially long ones. If you have a preference on where the name is placed, please include this, however be advised that the monogram may be very small on flaps with designs.
